49 more went east Friday, and a coal move was spotted by a poster elsewhere yesterday NB at N2 around 16:15. No idea if that was all of them in one move.

At 18:51 today D2 instructed POAY to pick up "ten empty coals at NC" and "you will be set back to 9AM tomorrow."

Those 10 empty coals just passed Palmer WB a few minutes ago, on Q427.

Weird at 4:00pm yesterday there were unknown number of empty coal cars under the Rourke Bridge in Lowell.

Maybe they're moving WB in a similar fashion to the way they came east.

Looks like another 24 or so coal hoppers arrived Worcester on Friday 3/25/22.

On Friday morning AYPO dropped 37 loaded coal at Westford. At approximately 14:30 after a walk through the adjacent conservation area I saw the apparent " shift change" of RR security at the site. At 10:00 am today cars were gone.

They were seen NB in Merrimack around 4am.

Already at Selkirk, probably will be split up for M426 since there is plenty of capacity. Should be a few coming this season

Empties went back west over the B&A a few hours ago, should be in NY by now.

Another coal train went EB through North East, PA, at 08:24 with 7215/742, 102 hoppers, 7220/7037 mid DPUs, followed by another 100 hoppers. Assuming they'll split this one somewhere, if it is all Bow bound.
