The Nacho (GMTX 2147) and 804 are on the Barre WACR run, I think they've just started running again, on the "new" track they laid last year. They don't go very fast, so you'll have plenty of shots as long as you don't get bunged up in traffic. The one time I got them, they were out at the Junction, grabbing inbound gons from NECR.

GMTX 3012, former GMRC 305, is in the process of being scrapped at Mervis Recycling, Decatur, IL.

CP push is to retrench to Farnham, not build traffic to Newport, there isnt much green mountain gateway traffic anyway...
Looking at a map all interchange at Newport or Farnham is pretty roundabout for their non-WACR lines. Maybe they can wring freeish trackage rights out CP to move interchange there? Guessing they already have trackage rights w/ NECR.

They have haulage rights, not trackage rights on the NECR. Your post isn't very clear, where are you suggesting they move the interchange? VRS wants nothing to do with operating over the border.

I am not suggesting anything. Was stating an observation.

Looking at a map, Whitehall seems to be the most sensible interchange with CP for the non-WACR lines. That is a current interchange right?

Yes, and much of the WACR traffic itself is coming through that interchange these days. They don't seem to be handing off much, if anything via Newport currently, with CP keeping much of the bridge traffic to itself.

3x a week, they still have a couple customers there.
