How common are road freights?

In addition to the oil trains, what other through road freights are there? I remember seeing a few pictures of an intermodal crossing the Onawa trestle as late as 2005. Are there still piggybacks on the MMA?

Intermodal dried up because of border laws that changed with the US. Probably gone around 2006. Number 1 and 2 run about everyday with extras for oil. Also there are jobs to Millinocket and NMJ out of Brownville Junction. They run two or three times a week. Lately, they've been more frequently than that.
