It's so comforting to see that lone engine pulling all those containers, with sparks flying out of it.

EDPO was out of Deerfield this morning with 609-616 and 32 cars. 19 Fitch/AY soup, 13 Rigbys.

Some folks on Yahoo said it was an EDAY, would the Rigbys get set at Ayer for continuance on SEPO?

It was the ED-8/EDAY crew but train was EDPO. Ayers would get set off in Ayer. Would also have a pick up there especially empty water if on a weekend day SEPO isn't scheduled.

The 19 Fitch's/Ayers were dropped on the east side at OX. (28N was canned on the west side) EDPO canned at Westford, no Ayer pickup today.

POED today had the 8955-610-601-606 and 123 cars out of NC. Of course 2 units were dead (610-606), so FI-1 327 gave them a shove from CPF Derby to Gardner.

EDPO had 600-3005-3001 today and canned in the Hill yard this morning. Big train with H20 on the rear.

On my way into work this afternoon I came across POED working Fitchburg at 1400 with the 609-600-608-3400-327-606-505 (all blues!). They had a pick-up of 70 cars off the east side. Train was well over 100 cars.

FI-1 306 was eastbound out of the west side of OX at the same time.
