Slim. The logs will be rotted by the time Pan Am gets them to Eastern MA lol. Then they will give the customer an absurdly high number to fix the track to improve service that the customer won't pay.

He amassed a huge stockpile of Hemlock logs along Commercial Street next to-maybe in-old yard 8. They sat there, for what seemed months. The story was that when the potential buyers cam to inspect the the 30 foot long Hemlock, disappointed in the lengths, they asked, 'where is the rest of the tree?' and walked away from the deal.that was back in 1992 & 1993. i worked for an association that tried to get contractors to NOT export the hemlock logs, but rather process (add value to) them domestically.
The logs sat there for another several months until they were hauled away by truck for some use in Maine or New Hampshire.
