I'm not very familiar with the details of New England railroading. My question is, why are they using a the Miller Falls interchange, which wasn't in such good shape. Could they not have gotten on PAS at Northfield, and then went through East Deerfield to head east? It doesn't look that much longer than using the Millers Falls interchange.
Related, is it right that PAS can run its own trains all the way from White RIver Jct to Northfield. So if they went got off NECR at Northfield, then NECR would not be involved in this operationally (such as crews ...), and they just get a per-car fee from PAS?

NS and CSX got into a dispute on moving auto rack and container trains. So NS and PAR, along with the NECR and the VRS opened a second routing. Begins at Crescent (west of Mechanicville) up the CP (D&H) to Whitehall NY, over to Rutland and Bellows Falls on the VRS, down to Millers Falls on the NECR and east to Gardner and Ayer on PAR. NS assembled five GP38-2 locos and moved 50 autoracks today. NS symbol was 27W.
