Given that Ardagh Glass has just closed its Milford manufacturing facility around the end of March, there may not be a customer for CSX to service in Milford anymore.

It'd probably help to get this section transferred over to the G&U sooner rather than later.Is that really a possibility or just wishful thinking? The transfer of this line to the G&U, that is. Any idea what parts of the line would go to the G&U?

CSX Engineer 98 wrote:has the G&U spir track been cut in at the runaround in Milford ?As far as I can tell, as of December, the closest any G&U track currently gets to the MBTA track at Milford is the short isolated stretch G&U built a few years back from the crossing at Main St Milford behind Pinz bowling to Vernon St at the cemetery. It does look as if some vegetation had been cut back parallel to the MBTA track between S Cedar St and Depot St but, as yet, there are no piles of ties/stone/rail to build track in the area. What service is there for G&U to takeover from CSX in the Milford area?
G&U is rumored to be taking over service... so we've been told.
