There were several cars parked a Salem Station last night. Usually they leave them a little further down on bridge street.

Not sure if it's specifically Salem related or not, but I saw a PAR loco (couldn't catch the number from the Orange Line) working on a consist of about 24 cars behind BET this AM. Consist looked like a few reefers, lots of scrap gondolas, and several covered hoppers. There was also a tank car parked at the end of the siding near Sullivan station.

I don't remember the last time I saw that many freight cars in that area.

I recall seeing that before in that area. I think someone posted a while back that area was about the only location where PanAm could gather/store cars before heading out. I recall seeing a long line of empties coming out of Salem and the next day I saw them spotted at that location that you saw. Pretty amazing when you think of how much space they used to have in the Boston yards.
