Yes,
there’s an old box just rotting away in that area, behind one of the factory complexes.

I think there may be at least two boxcars there. Ex-M&P 40ft 4000 series or 50ft 5000 series boxcars Bay Colony
bought early on for materials storage, etc.

There is only one present today. At one time there was a boxcar buried near the GAF factory.

Update: 22 June 2019

Line is clear of all cars.

1701 in her nest.

Looks like Tresca doesn't require any additional loads, the cement plant in Maine can't produce additional product or Both.

It's been a long time since any cars were spotted on the spur.

Is this the old boxcar currently sitting on a siding in Millis, Mass. Got this from NERAIL Photos.

Unfortunately, these are not Millis cars. Headed to a new facility on the Grafton & Upton.
At least that was I was told.

Why haven't we seen any cars this year yet?
  by GP40MC1118
 
Tresca may be getting their fly ash at the new place on the G&U. As for the cement,
probably gone back to barges. Really don't know.

Shame no one can't utilize that warehouse at end of track in Millis.

Actually that warehouse was bought and is being renovated by the marijuana dispensary CommCan.
