instead of spray paint, it would be faster and easier to use a pump action paint gun, similar (or identical) to what foresters use to mark timber. no bending over, can hit the target from feet away rather than inches away, etc.

Picture from yesterday at Depot St. Westford. I believe they used this to distribute more new ties between crossings.
This machine has no man in the front cab, it is controlled remotely by the operator of the excavator.

Is the Littleton detector no longer hitting every train for height now?

In my listening times, yes the almost routine hits have disappeared, I am sure train crews and dispatchers are happy. One time a dispatcher upon hearing there were no defects said " yes there is a God."

Last night L-080 made a visit to the west end of the Stony around 21:00 to make some strange moves. Discussion from D-2 and train involved moves at Graniteville and reversing direction near MP 127. The dispatcher told them the Manager of Train Operations would meet them at Town Farm Rd. to go over the plan and help them with the moves. Apologies for the vague info.
