They were brought over from Nevins to North Yard upon arrival from Medfield for forwarding on the next B725 southbound out of Framingham.

Hearing nothing in sight to interrupt the 1701's long slumber. Only activity
seems to be CSX setting of Watuppa cars at Medfield Jct in error! Even that
has mercifully stopped!

Based upon information dated 09 March 2017 on this thread:

If Dragon Cement was purchased by Giant Cement and Elementia bought a 55% stake in the Giant Cement Holdings piece of Grupo Cementos Portland Valderrivas. So Thomaston is now an Elementia-flagged plant.

If the $$ didn't add up to ship Via Rail, Tresca is receiving Via Barge and helping the bottom line.

It was fun while it lasted !

Update 05 Aug.

The (10) empty cars by Island Road waiting to be moved to the switch by the secondary for pick-up.

Large piles of ballast being staged by West mill Street. Looks like the spreaders will soon be busy on the secondary.
