The Belfast and Moosehead Lake Railroad is receiving one of the former Dragon Cement whale belly hoppers for display purposes. The rest were/are scrapped.

That's cool. An interesting piece of Maine railroading history that would've been all too easily forgotten.

They will have 3 empty cement to pick up in Brunswick.

Saw they went westbound today to Brunswick. Did they ever end up picking the cement cars up or is that a tomorrow task?

I heard a rumor 2309 was moved to rockland yard w/ 2310. From a friend who saw it on FB

Wonder why they just brought one up if they had 3 to grab last week.
  by NHV 669
 
They probably already grabbed them on last week's run... they may have switched ASA while grabbing this car.

is 2308 in use currently. ive noticed a trend that #2310 has been running lately. My assumption would be they have a rotation, but i could be wrong.

They were parked at ASA a little after 8 this morning.

So maybe they did switch ASA after all today (or yesterday).

Anyone have any updates on the line during this April snowstorm? It’s a coastal route and I’m not sure how well the seaside areas of Maine are faring, especially after the storms earlier this year.
