This AM, CSX 731 backed the following on the Millis Spur:

TILX 30749
TILX 30854
TILX 31227

Bay Colony staff were waiting and the 1701 moved these to Island Road for unloading.

Around what time last year did Bay Colony stop delivering cars?

Going back through 2017/2018's posts, it appears there was about a 3 week break in April of this year. But it looks like activity continued through the winter.

I'm guessing that the Millis line should receive 8 - 10 cars before the concrete plant closes for the winter.

That should give Tresca plenty of Safety Stock until spring.

OBTW, The Bird/GAF roofing shingle plant, that the Bay Colony once serviced, has been razed. Only the stone tower remains.

Happy New Year everyone !!

The following cars are spotted at Island Road waiting to be off-loaded:

TILX 31408 (empty)
TILX 30867 (Full)
CAIX 95712 (Empty)

I could be mistaken but I believe these cars were in the Hopedale yard last week next to the new silos.

Does anyone have photos of the Bay Colony activities in action?
They remind me of the once 'hard to catch in action' G&U from 10+ years ago.

You can find a ton of photos online, but a few months ago I bought the Bay Colony Millis DVD from Blackstone River Productions. Great purchase and definitely worth it for $10.00
