Google Earth imagery from 9/8/2014 shows what appears to be an awful mess behind those boxcars and it appears there are a couple of the cars separate from the rest. Also appears to be junk and trash in the wetland. I hope Meddybemps isn't headed for an environmental disaster. I sure wouldn't knowingly eat those blueberries.
