They came in on the controlled siding, took a turn on the wye, and backed the three hoppers back onto the controlled siding alongside the platform for Maine Eastern to pick up, which will probably happen next week some time. 337 headed down to the signals at Church Road to meet with Amtrak Downeaster Train 681, before proceeding back to Rigby light engine, facing west, at about 12:35pm.Interesting move. They send the local down the line with the passenger train chasing it. Would have thought they would have held DO-1 to let the Downeaster get ahead. Given that departure from Brunswick took place within minutes of the Downeaster's arrival I guess it's safe to say that they got into Brunswick at least 30 minutes prior to Amtrak's arrival (in order to allow time for a wye movement). Pretty tight scheduling,.....

Another Pan AM symbol anomaly?:)It is the DO-1 crew who makes the Brunswick run. I know it it confusing - but they have been using that symbol on the Brunswick branch for quite some time now.

MEC 514 spent the night on the Brunswick wye, then the DO-1 crew brought it up around 13:15 to Rock Jct. to pick up cars from Maine Eastern.
