Seven Alarm fire in Haverhill near the PAR main line several blocks north of Haverhill Station.
WBZ reports commuter rail shut down. Probably the Downeasters are being held and freight
traffic is likely shut down. Fire is in a vacant mill building.

Yes sir, also saw SEPO through Atkinson at about 530pm. With the usual duo of CSX GE units but they also had MEC 519 in tow not sure if dead or running. I missed POED, but heard it pass my area (Kingston) at 642pm.

DOBO is getting ready to depart Dover as we speak, just waiting for the Amtrak and POSE is also in the cards for tonight departing from the siding in Wells, Maine at some point.

my friend reports POED just went through Bradford station, must have been parked at Plaistow or Atkinson for a bit.

Excellent video by Derek Carpine of a recent NBPO with 379 leading:

Can't remember the last time I saw a 370-series leading a road train on the B&M, which is probably a good thing from the crews' perspective, but it was neat to see it again.
