What major roadway does the Q426 cross over or under?
  by Ken Rice
 
It goes from Worcester to Ayer, and crosses upder 190 just after it splits off 290. The Pan Am line crosses the CSX line in Clinton. You can follow both on google maps, or this link should get you go a decent area on the openrailwaymap: https://www.openrailwaymap.org/?lang=nu ... e=standard

Thanks a bunch Ken, that clears up a magnitude of questions.I really appreciate it. I was wondering if the bridge that the Worcester main line crosses under the Fitchburg secondary in Clinton is accessible?

You can see the bridge from the Sterling St. crossing. It's right behind the old two story union station.

While out and about in Worcester this evening I spotted SEPO/Q426 Idling away at Greendale with LTEX MP15DC #1524 painted in blue and white, right behind the road power. Per another thread elsewhere on Railroad.net there was a report that WATCO was swapping out power at Rumford, Maine and a unit presumed destined for that purpose had been spotted at Greendale recently, but this is not the same switcher mentioned in that thread. Is WATCO getting another one, or where else could LTEX 1524 be destined?

I rolled through the area around 1:15 and the Q427 was headed west to CP45. At that time the LTEX 1524 wasn’t there. Do you know where it comes from and who delivers it? As I type this the Q426 is looking for a form D to MPX25 and is mentioning the LTEX 1525. The dispatcher was inquiring about it and said it has to be inspected. I wonder when it’s departing and where it’s destination is going to be?

LTEX MP15DC 1524 is headed to Old Town, Maine.

Didn't know where to place this newsworthy tidbit but a loaded grain train from CSX, G103, is heading to Ayer in the wee hours of Wednesday morning via the B&A and the Worcester Main. Don't know why this train is not operating on PAS D3 - perhaps there is a crew shortage or some other reason...

There has been some strange stuff going on lately! Somebody finally took that blue boxcar from siding track at Burncoat. They fixed the door months ago.
