Large GRWO on 07/17/2014

Noticed a rather super long (ran from the P&W yard, up the hill, way past Union Station almost into downtown Worcester) GRWO train this afternoon around 4:00pm. Never seen that many (50+) auto racks and other loads on this type of train. The Worcester main was also tied up with a massive CSX container train just West of Union station. Haven't seen the yards this clogged in a while

Not sure if it's related, but yesterday morning I noticed what appeared to be a couple of derailed autoracks on the Providence line right at the beginning of 146. Today on the way home there was still 1 rack there apparently not re-railed yet.
