CSX B732 now serves West Mansfield taking the place of CSX B733

CSX B710 now serves Chocolate taking the place of CSX B735

Mansfield MA industrial park east of the station (as opposed to West Mansfield industrial park) with the lead into the park and along the NE corridor located alongside a chocolate factory.

B735 still services the Chocolate, perhaps you saw or heard B710 down there one day because B735's crew had to re-crew the overnight B725 and take their train north to Attleboro. the new trainmaster is a knuckle-head and is trying to change the jobs around and eventually abolish another local or two. They already did away with B736, the night walpole job because no work out in Milford. :(

I caught B735-20 in Mansfield, short train, 6210 and only 7 cars I believe....and then I caught B710-20 in Stoughton, MA, they had 6224 and 2 loaded center beam cars and a box car, they headed down the branch after MBTA 912 headed East

There was a B729 with the 6214 working this afternoon in Randolph/Holbrook area. Used the siding
to runaround their train. Heard the OC TD give them a Rule 241.

CSX B732 is switching in Mansfield Yard as i post this with CSX 6224 (listening to my scanner) , 19 loads and 1 empty

Apparently B732 now does there normal run Readville to Walpole via the Franklin Branch to walpole, drops down the Framingham Secondary to service Foxboro terminals and then continues south on the Framingham Secondary to Mansfield to service West Mansfield. I was told that B732 out-lawed Friday night due to loco issues (problems with ACSES) and they probably were taxied home to Readville. Most likely B733 would have to go to West Mansfield to get the power since they are the first job to work after weekend on Sunday night reporting @ 600pm in Readville.
