Claremont & Concord Ceases Operations?

Postby bwparker1 » Tue Apr 13, 2004 9:03 pm

In the 2nd Quarter Pocket List of Railroad Officials, the "Claremont Concord R.R. Corp." is listed as a discontinued operation. There website seems to be up and runnig at http://www.theccrr.com/ and they are involved with the Flying Yankee Restoration. Is this guide just way off, or mayeb there was a change in corporate structure. Any news or clarification appreciated.

Thanks

I was up in Claremont Jct. last week and they had a huge string of covered hopper cars on the wye leading to the main line. They appeared to be very busy, which is a good thing.

Claremont Concord RR Busy?

Postby eriemike » Mon Jun 21, 2004 2:39 pm

I was noticing a month ago that the Claremont Concord RR at Claremont Jct. was clogged with short-closed hopper cars. It appears that they are very busy. Has business picked up for them? I know that they go up to WRJ and service the line to Westboro. What is going on?

Claremont & Concord Current Roster

Postby park » Wed Apr 02, 2008 5:17 am

Does anyone have the current roster for the Claremont & Concord RR? I think all but one of the 44T's are gone? If memory serves me correctly they should have three S4's: 102, 104 & 106.
Thank you

I know they said they were sold, but I have not been to the railroad since last summer so I cannot say for sure.

For the record, is the Claremont Concord RR. There's no longer a "&" in there. (Just doesn't sound right.) Pretty sure the change took place when the current owner purchased the RR.

It was actually CC, then C&C, then CC again.
