There’s no BCLR shop, would they do a mobile repair, with the Hi-Rail?

For those interested, BCLR's lease with the commonwealth.

Got a few updates on the Island Rd/Enviormental Dr line.

A few months ago a developer submitted plans to use almost 55 acres of woods in proximity to the line for a major residential development that would border the railroad beds.

Initial application - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fCdlwx ... sp=sharing

Updated plans (Dec 2019) - https://www.millis.org/sites/millisma/f ... 58DhAcVpQI

Also, today there was major demolition on the remaining GAF building, this building will likely be gone before next week.

It’s been a year and a half since Tresca got any shipments, does anyone have any updates? Seems that unless a new customer opens up, it doesn’t look good for the Millis Line.
