What is the status of the former BAR shops at Milo, ME? Are they still active? Noticed on another site that the former BAR (nee Northern Pacific) boat tailed-business car has returned to NP territory in Washington State. Has all the equipment been moved out/scrapped? Any current info/photos greatly appreciated.

Derby is still going. CMQ is promoting it as a car repair shop on there new website. The town of Milo purchased the land from MMA last year and from what I understand they have an agreement with CMQ. Part of it was cleaning up the site. CMQ has been getting the old MMA equipment that was sold at the action out and getting rid of the passenger equipment sence it has no plan to run it. Now some of the equipment like BAR 502, BAR x127, MMA 5017 are still there and there are no plans on moving it out. Milo is looking into trying to get other business out on the property as well.

All the remaining MMA equipment is owned by LTE now, and will be shipped out in due time. Regarding the actual shops, CMQ has been doing work on them, and has some interesting plans for them, that should bring in a decent amount of business once done.

Saw this posted in one of the CMQ Facebook pages. Great news for Derby. Article from the Piscataquis Observer.
