Looks like tie removal is happening in the North Yard at Bucksport today? Two rail trucks, two smaller machines (didn't get a good look at them) and no piles of new ties around.

What are they removing? Old track?

507 & 305? moving 115 (not a typo!) empties south past North Bucksport. Engines at the rear. A few center-beams, but mostly boxcars.

Word is they'll go as far as this crossing: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.6179394,-68.8264861,17z

Presumably the engines then come back up right away.

I believe a lot of the cars have been being stored north of this crossing for at least a week: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.7052566 ... 463,15.83z

Turns out Bucksport hasn't seen it's last train yet. :-D
