The current trend lately is to arrive at Rockingham late afternoon, runaround train and head to Portsmouth. If they get in town early enough they may do some work or just can and go home. I guess they have been parking the engine at Gosling overnight now days. Either way they finish up next day and head back to Rock and then back to Portland.
This week they came in Monday night worked Tuesday and went to Rock on Wednesday as far as I could keep track of.
Its hit or miss, usually in twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays but you never know.

No recent updates on Sea-3? The big tie pile still in Portsmouth yard?

From what I've heard the big pile of ties is for the Sarah Long bridge project supposed to be a ballasted deck so we'll see. As for Sea, a friend of mine works on the waterfront and said he heard Sea-3 was for sale and nothing has happened up the in regards to the expansion. I think they have had approval to build now for almost two years. I'll keep my eyes and ears open.
