I saw a very long train do a reverse move on the tracks adjacent to the Veterans Bridge yesterday. It backed all the way on track 1, from under the South Portland rt 1 exit, to the crossover at the oil plant-just before rr trestle. As soon as it ended up on track 2, the Downeaster passed heading east. The freight then stayed on track 2 and continued towards Rigby.
Usually the freights heading west stay on track 2 after switching to it at Congress Street.
Anyone know why this happened- track work, mistake?
