OK a very strange thing happened tonight. I was down by New Boston road in Woburn and there goes a train. It was a freight, no gravel train so I assumed it must be a LOSA. I also figured it must be switching SOMEPLACE around with that many cars, so I headed south to follow. I caught up as it was switching out Rohstien and the place next door. It was very cool to watch. Then, when it looked like it was done, the locomotive took off! At first I thought maybe it was going up a little ways to grab a car or two someplace else, rather than take the whole train with em. But then I realized there really is no other customers up that way. So I headed south again to check it out. Then when I was at montvale ave in woburn, I saw the locomotive heading back, but on the opposite track.
Was he running around his train to take it back up north instead of down to boston? Is this what they do all the time now? Was this not the LOSA?
Lots of telephone poles on this train, a bucket with some huge chunks of granite, and lots of box cars. Two of them were wobbling so badly, I can't imagine what would happen if that train every tried to go fast. The track was nice and straight and these two cars were just going back and forth so much it was nuts.
