Where do they go once they're in Salem? Down that branch near the station? Where does that lead. I've tried to follow it in a car, but lost it.
Is that track still used?

Years ago I guess it went to South Reading and joined with the MBTA mainline. Now it ends at Second Ave. where Liberty Carton company used to be. Eastman Kodak receives covered hoppers of crushed animal bones from slaughter houses in the midwest. Its used to make gelatin. They used to receive 20K tank cars of hydrochloric acid but that now gets delivered by truck.Thanks, I see. So I guess this is because everybody abandond movies and went to video in the 80's and 90's and everybody is abandoning 35 mm cameras and going to digital now? Guess it is only going to get much worse then.
