nydepot,
Greg pretty much hit the nail on the head! Eastbound 394 usually arrives in Island Pond between 1830 and 2030 and departs east shortly after a crew change. Most, but not all, nights they switch the lumber transload there. Westbound 393 returns in the middle of the night and heads west between 0730 and 0830. Currently, running most Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, so the eastbound arrives that evening and the westbound departs the following morning. There have been quite a few Wednesday night extras this winter.
Best,
Fritz

Nice to see traffic holding steady ... Hopefully it starts to pickup again ...

Caught 394 in Waterville, QC yesterday a little after 6:00 PM, or about 2 hours later than usual:

QGRY 6904
SLR 3047
SLR 3035
41 cars

With 3 units up front they made quick work of the grade, throttling down as they reached the crest. The first 2/3 was a mix of different cars, while the last 15 or so were LPG tanks.

Thread has been quiet lately, so here are a couple of shots of 513 today with 3008- first sitting on the high
bridge at South Paris while switching NEPW and second eastbound between Oxford and Mechanic Falls.

393 yesterday approaching Mechanic Falls at 19:10 hrs. Just enough light to get a shot at 1/500th - good thing they were slowing down for the bridge. I also caught up to them in Oxford and videoed them -
