Between the land purchase and the rail, their investment is over $750K (Not sure if that counts IRAP money or not I'd have to look it up) in rail service.

First, thanks to Jacob Mayo's Yahoo # 140395 http://www.nscorp.com/content/nscorp/en" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... ettma.html alert that bridge and track work near Wachusett would result in a 0700/05-09-2016 to 0700/05-10-2016 FML closure.
The alert prompted an earlier-than-normal departure, resulting in the vision of 3 EB points of white light coming round the Wachusett curve, POED with NewBlue 618 and OldYeller LTEX 8955 getting 46 east of the still-dark new signal structure at 0516. 21 of the cars -- in various blocks -- were TTX flats and centerbeams of structural steel.
