Nice photos! I especially like the last one where they're leaning into the curve.

What radio frequency or frequencies do they use on this portion of the MM&A? Is the line dark territory much like the old BAR lines in Maine? Is the dispatching (RTC) in Farnham or out at Northern Maine Jct.? How many trains run on this line per day?

161.505 on the road, 161.475, in the yard. The line is dark territory and dispatched both by Farnham & Northern Maine Jct. Job #1 & 2 every second day, but other assignments such as Farnham-St-Jean, Sherbrooke-Magog, five days a week and other branchline jobs depending of the traffic.
