Went out again yesterday (9/19/17) and did not see any new ties along Manchester line that were dropped off to be put in. One car was in the Manchester yard though. South Windsor line has ties dropped off but no machinery in sight to put it.If I would take a count there must be about 10 bundles I saw. I couldn't get to East Hartford along Park street due to repaving job going on. Will try tomorrow as this is the last place I saw all the machinery was working.

Looks like they are all done with the tie gang on both Manchester (never was done only through to School Street and yard in E.H.) and South Windsor Lines. They do look somewhat better but could really use some ballast but I don't think any will be coming.

I watched in Hartford CT yard today CSO-4 come through with 56 cars headed South to New Haven, CSO-1 with about ten cars headed in the yard from Springfield as well, and CSO-3 stopped with about 9 cars headed up to Windsor Locks and was waiting on Amtrak 56 to head North but they were running about 45 minutes behind time. Also local was switching cars around so CSO1 and CSO-3 had places to sit and wait. Great rail day in Hartford today around 2:00pm today.

I saw yesterday in Hartford yard a rail surface machine and a small ballast car attached loading up after working somewhere in the yard. Then today out in Manchester in the yard I saw one center beam car that was unloaded already. Not sure if it was for Sanford and Hawley or someone else? At least there was some activity out on the line.

Now that the siding has been relayed, a whole new wall and better looking then it has ever, is CSO going to be delivering any road salt to this location in the Hartford CT Meadows? I have not seen any cars on the property. Does anyone know if they will be delivering this vital product for the winter?
