NH Northcoast won a $4.6M CRISI grant from the FRA:
New Hampshire – New Hampshire Northcoast Infrastructure Project (Multiple Opportunity Zones)
Up to $4,562,905 New Hampshire Northcoast Railroad

Comprises four components along the New Hampshire Northcoast’s (NHN) Railroad mainline between Ossipee and Rollinsford, New Hampshire, and Eastern Propane Gas’s (EPG) property in North Rochester, New Hampshire. The first component replaces approximately 20,000 ties and replaces four miles of continuous welded rail and associated ballast work; the second equips one locomotive with positive train control (PTC) and three locomotives with Cab Signal Systems; the third upgrades two grade crossings; and the fourth builds two rail spurs, one at the EPG facility and the other along the NHN mainline.
Q: Given NHN power on DOBO-BODO runs through to Boston via MBTA, it's clear why at least one NHN unit needs PTC but I'm unclear why any NHN locomotives would require cab signals if they're only running on MBTA's Northside lines?

Aside: I didn't realize that NHN was owned by Boston Sand & Gravel: http://www.nhnorthcoast.com/

30 or so branny new NHN sand/gravel hoppers in east deerfield yard. They could be new design as well as I have not seen this exact type of vehicle before. very striking design with coal car black paint and white lettering. and of course a few have been already sacrificed to the on line artists for modification before the owner gets to see them.
