Accident is near Fairlee Motel, train was stopped between there and Gray's Field as of 20:00. Unit is definitely 307. Plenty of State Police personnel on site, as well as at least one VRS rig.

Site is about here: 43°55'22.1"N 72°07'24.0"W

Per the report the man was on a John Deere 1023E tractor, which is what is classified as a subcompact tractor which is about as tall as the pilot on a locomotive.

307 didn't move Friday for some reason. I passed NPWJ on I-91 as they were picking up empties. They arrived in WRJ at 16:15 with 204 and 27 cars. After leaving Lebanon yesterday, drove over the South Yard on I-89. Looks to be close to 20 cars ready to go north.

After being off the grid for a few days, it's been nice to see that the last three days have been one-way, two unit trains of 15 cars or more.

431 is in ED, having arrived a few hours ago on BFED. Sounds like a trip to the doctor for cosmetic repairs from the accident two weeks back.

VRS stands to lose about 100 cars/month of Omya traffic as a result of this closure.

What type of paper did that mill make? With brown paper shopping bags making a comeback and the overall movement to do away with plastic in a lot of different products, I would imagine paper production will start to see and uptick.

Vermont Railway must have had a derailment recently. Three damaged lpg cars strapped on on long flats on the siding by the Arlington station.

Those cars are from a derailment in Hoosick NY back in January of this year.
I do not know where they have been kept for the last nearly six months.
