I have been wondering this as well. It's been almost 6 months now since I have seen any movement / any cars on Univar siding.

They made a few trips to Peabody this week due to the long weekend including a late Friday drop off. The crew left the train off Bridge street in Salem for the holiday weekend.

I believe its derailed - engine complete off and one truck of the trailing covered hopper based on photos from a friend this morning.

Well that is one way to park it, at least they can rest assure no one will take it for a joy ride. LOL Guess it will be there past Monday. I didn't have time to take a close look while driving.

LA-3 rerailed it today.

The engine is no longer there but the cars are, they seem to be on the rail.

Yup, it was derailed. A crew with a crane was there yesterday morning putting the train back on the tracks. They also had an other engine on site to move the train and then take the engine home.

Has anyone got any updates on Univar? It's been about 8 or so months now since they have been serviced.

An article in the Salem News today notes that work about to begin on Rt. 1 in Peabody includes the removal of the rail crossing near Lowell Street:

"Crews will be installing construction signs, excavating and removing railroad tracks and installing new drainage structures on this stretch of Route 1, MassDOT said. The work is scheduled to start Sunday, Aug. 25..."

A small MOW crew was working on the Franklin St crossing in Peabody today.
