Thanks for all the detail!
To go all snarky, is this Pan Am or Pan Canned? To re-re-restate the obvious, if 1 in Athol isn't restored soon, It's gonna be a long and slow winter.

Thanks for the update!

Sounds like the rail and tie work for the CT river is done for the winter, though, huh?

Sorry I don't know manifest #'s etc., but I did catch one coming into the yard Thursday morning around 11:30. It was a 6 engine train being pulled by two PAR engines #600 and 378, followed by an old Guilford Rail engine #317, and 3 engines in tow stamped HLCX- #8072 & 8070 (former BN?) and #7843 (former...?). I'm sure someone here knows which train this was arriving, and would love to know what these HLCX's were formerly, esecially 7843.

HLCX 7843 was built in 1978 as Colorado & Southern 7843. It eventually became Burlington Northern 7843, and then became BNSF 7843. Kinda remarkable that it retained its original number through all those mergers.

8070 and 8072 were both built for Burlington Northern in 1979, with those same numbers, which were retained when BN merged into BNSF.
