Keolis removed a pipe from a bridge at Sullivan Square.
Anyone else scratching their head and thinking about the fact that there apparently was only one minor impediment that prevented access to the Produce Market all these years? Pan Am got this business from CSX about 10 years ago. When it became apparent that unless F Plate reefers where cleared into Everett the business would be permanently lost, you would think someone at Pan Am would have said, "you know that one pipe could be removed". Hopefully CSX will make a little more effort in figuring out how to better serve its new customer base.
P.S. I did once see a boxcar setout on the Grand Junction that had hit the bridge at Memorial Drive so going that way is not possible as mentioned elsewhere.
P.P.S. I found a couple of images of railcars at the Produce Market and they were stacked floor to ceiling with boxes of potatoes. While other pictures showed pallets of produce being quickly and easily off-loaded from truck trailers, it would seem that the railcars had to be unloaded completely by hand box by box. Doesn't seem like a very efficient process.
