I don't think any of this information about B724 changes is correct. I saw them on the way back to Framingham in the Berlin area on Friday and just heard them in the Clinton area a little while ago (Sunday). I do believe that CSX has been running six days all the way to the C&D facility most days the last few weeks.

Update of all trains that serve Framingham 10/1/20
B724 has been running six days a week recently: Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday they handle the traffic on the north end of the line (Bestway Lumber in Sterling and new recycle center in Leominster); and Monday/Wednesday/(most) Fridays (extra crew?) (Safety Kleen and Ken's foods in Marlborough and NewCorr in Northborough)
B722 - Turn Manifest (Daily) [Worcester - Framingham]
B724 - Turn Manifest (MON-FRI) [Framingham - Leominster]
B725 - Turn Manifest (MON-THU) [Framingham - Attleboro]
B731 - Turn Manifest (MON-FRI) [Framingham - Readville]

Y120 - Turn Power Move (As Needed But Usually Daily) [Worcester - Framingham]
Y121 - Evening Switcher (MON-FRI) [Framingham - Framingham]
Q436 has been cut to Worcester. B722 takes it's cars to Framingham and takes what used to be Q437's cars to Worcester. Those cars go on Q427 and sometimes Q115 to Selkirk. That's right. Q436 still runs but Q437 was abolished.
B725 no longer runs on Fridays.
I have been observing their consist for weeks as they head north through Southborough, and the pattern is that they have cars for Bestway and C&D on Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday, and on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, the have cars for Safety Kleen, Ken's Foods and NewCorr. I believe they to at least Clinton, if not all of the way to Leominster all six days. I am not sure if Teknor Apex an active customer.
