Travels from Framingham to Attleboro to interchange with B726 (cape and OC freight traffic) Middleboro- Attleboro. Last I saw, has 2 SD40-2's and a GP40-2 in the middle and varies anywhere from 20-90 cars

THANKSTo make it even more interesting, there is an industrial park north of the Mansfield switch which has to be served too:
