These came from Old Town, sounds like they pulled them out of Bucksport, just to get to the center beams and a few others.

Ok that clarification is much appreciated. So the current total of box cars stored in Bucksport is the same as it was previously?

Based on the counts from the previous videos, there are now 34 fewer boxcars than were originally brought down (221).

Is there an AAR negotiated rate for railroads to store cars on their property. Is see private companies that advertise yard storage at a daily rate per car.

I haven't looked at the filing from CSX, but after reading another post about the Madison Branch abandonment, was this branch included, or is CSX going to retain it for the time being?

Just the Madison Branch for now.
