Those must be the new lightweight energy saving 'phantom' gates
  by MECFAN
 
Two were rebuilt last year. Green Street and Barberry Lane. WBBX Lane was closed off. Market Street will be done next year when Portsmouth finished the upgrades along that road
They did four crossings last year. They also did Gosling Road and Michael Souza Drive into the Gyp plant. I read somewhere that Maplewood is also supposed to be rebuilt but can't remember where I read that.

Are there any plans to rebuild the crossing for Patterson Lane?
  by Jonathan603
 
Is there anything past Patterson Lane currently? Is that Sprague? I know it got cleared of brush last year but presumably never sees any rail traffic?

No customers, just the siding to run the engine around, which I though was going to be the case with Sea 3 expansion.
  by Jonathan603
 
Ah yes I see the siding on google earth. That would help a lot for the Sea-3 expansion. Hope that happens. Not sure if they will do anything with the crossing... I think it is missing signage so at the very least that will need to be done.

Oh I don't know, they could always go to the end and set up a transload deck for the shipment of beer...what with Stoneface and Cisco breweries just down the street. :wink:

Eons ago, what is now Great Rhythm brewing was a beer distributor's warehouse. Boxcar loads of beer loitering in the yard were easy targets for Mcdonough street ne'er do wells.

Track work on the branch was supposed to start this week I believe
  by Jonathan603
 
Probably right. There seems to have been a lot of activity on the branch lately. Do you know where they are working this week?

MEC 518 got orders from Emery to MP P-1 and return at 6:00PM Thursday 7/18.
I believe the PH-! or DO-1 is running at night to accomodate the track work.

DO-1 goes on at 1800 currently to allow for track work during the day. Should be that way for another month or two.
