Hello,
In pouring rain, yesterday's SLQ westbound 393 departed Island Pond at 0851 with the following:

QG GP40-2L 3014
SD70MAC 4024
7 centerbeam flats
9 boxcars
6 covered hoppers
1 hi-sided gondola
59 tank cars

That's 82 cars total, including 5 loads and 77 empties!

And it appears that the road trains ran three nights this past week (Monday, Tuesday and Friday) plus possibly they also may have run a turn from Richmond to Island Pond and back.
Best,
Fritz

I caught SL&A 3004 heading to mechanic falls on 4/19/24 at 3:22 pm with ten cars.
The cars order was 3 cn box cars at the very end, one ttx box car, another cn, 3 unknown box cars, and two cars probably from Hancock lumber full of wooden sheets

Hancock Lumber doesn't ship by rail... those cars likely go to Maine Wood Treaters right there in Mechanic Falls.
