They did operate a plow-equipped ballast regulator Sunday and Monday, according to the Greenville railcam log.
Between the last two storms part of the Moosehead accumulated 2-3+ feet of snow, which until recently was considered a dusting haha.

They ran a regulator WB about 90 or so minutes ahead of 121 yesterday...

Will the bridge collapse in Baltimore change any port activity on the East Coast? More for SJ and Halifax?

Interesting point Mr. Fromway.

Through the COVID years, when the maritime companies were confronted with "find me a berth, any berth", I would say in all probability.

But with East Coast berths suddenly plentiful, such liklihood is lessened, although Saint John could see some additional callings.

Naturally, should Mr. Cowford choose to step up, I will defer in a heartbeat.

I doubt it, even if its just temporary thats a huge cost to bear when you have NYNJ and several other ports in that area (including a Coast Guard base). Given how much maritime traffic travels to/from Baltimore. I expect there to be a massive push to clear the wreck once the victims have been recovered.
