You beat me to it LOL. I Heard the horn out in Greenland so I caught them at Portsmouth Ave. and followed them to town. They headed right up to Newington and dropped the 1 Boise box on the Boise spur but didn't spot it. They then headed up the line toward Sprauge.
Maybe next week we'll get a fish car and all will be right again in Portsmouth LOL!!!

There was an article in the Portsmouth Hearald this morning about the condo project in the yard, looks like its back on.

Nice, well that was timely lol.

Highliner would be nice to see too.

Thanks MECFAN. Good to know. I had to bail just after I shot that video but took a drive earlier to see if it was in the yard but didn’t. Didn’t see it from Shafer either, I assume it may have been back there at Sprague by then. Not sure where it is right now.

Lol yes fish would be great... even greater would be a Navy move.... 2020 could take a turn for the better after all :-)

At one point they were talking 16 cars a day out of Sea-3. Has that changed?

They canned at Schiller last night at the Gosling Road crossing, so their working today maybe get out of town late afternoon.

I never saw that sort of volume more than maybe a handful of times back when they were talking about 16 a day.

Am going to hit the bucks and see if it’s still at Schiller. :-)

DO-1 canned at Rockingham this morning.

Thanks. I snapped a pic of it at Schiller yesterday. Thanks for the heads up :-)

Heard it moving around on the scanner yesterday afternoon but didn’t see it leave.

I shot some drone footage of 510 crossing great bay yesterday. Enjoy!

Great video, thank you for sharing! Nice shot at the end with the plane landing. Near the end it seemed that you were hovering fairly close to the ground when the train passed under, are there any issues about that? Could the crew see the drone? Just curious

Thanks! The last shot was actually not a drone shot, I took it from a footbridge with my cellphone :-) But yes it would certainly be an issue... you are not supposed to hover over people, cars or transport.

Thanks for your feedback :-)

Was the middle part of this trestle a draw bridge at one time?

I've never stumbled across that before, thanks for sharing.
