Bumping thread: NS temporarily "metering" container traffic bound for Mechanicville and Ayer IM pads. Given the parking lot PAS has become, i understand why Ayer traffic might be metered but I don’t get why Mechanicville containers should be restricted except that PAS operates the facility.
Sep 29, 2021

Due to a backlog of inbound traffic on the PanAm Southern, effective 00:01 local time tomorrow, Thursday, September 30th, NS will restrict ingates at Chicago 47th for all shipments billed locally to Albany & Ayer.

The Fall 2020/Winter 2021 fact sheet found at the link posted tells us at the bottom of page 2 that the next step is to complete environmental review and no funding has been identified for design or construction.

Given it's been about 9 months since then, nothing was designed and the wildcard of the CSX purchase has come into play in that time, the answer is very likely none.

Good tonnage out of EDFLD today.

RJAY took 115 out of EDFLD.
ED8 took 92 out of EDFLD.
EDPO took 91 out of EDFLD.

RJAY stalled at Royalston.
