The OCS was on the move east this morning. It was alleged they wanted it to be on the move out of Rigby around 10am. I did see it go by Woodville Road near mp188 shortly after 11am. I'm no expert at judging speed, but by the number of shots I was able to take, I'd say they went by just under 20mph.

According to Facebook post from a reliable source, OCS departs North Station Weds 9/18 at 9:30AM heading for Freeport loaded with guests. Should arrive Freeport at 1:00PM with guests de-training. OCS will wye and guests will re-board at 2:30PM and head for Portland arriving at 3:15PM.

Don't know if Doug Boudrow is a participant at Railroad.net but here is a link to an excellent photo he took yesterday and posted on RailPictures.Net showing the OCS near Tower A Boston:

#681 was running 30 minutes late into Dover at 11:05. PAR OCS was close behind. Only a handful of passengers visible, but I could not see into the dome car top deck.

Didn't know the train was operating and stumbled onto it by accident. Have a shot of the train passing under the telltales on the first leg of the wye as well as backing up the other leg in Brunswick. Beautiful sunny day. For once the railfan gods were smiling on me.

I saw the OCS crossing the Merrimack River bridge going towards Boston. It then stopped at the old Bradford Station while 214 was stopped at the new Bradford Station.

An unknown freight was stopped outside Bradford Station heading towards Haverhill on the other track.
