The Adirondack baggage car (ME 1851) and Toys For Tots boxcar (ME 1775) have been pushed back towards the end of the team track (west). Speaking of the boxcar, they'll have to extract that from the siding pretty soon...
Are these covered hoppers stored for the few customers near the end of the branch, or is this new business where the cars are being transloaded on the team track?
I'm not sure. I didn't happen to notice if they were coupled to the boxcar or not, but, for whatever reason, I feel like they were. As far as I know, the next time I'll be passing by is Tuesday, so I'll have to check then.
