Oh okay. When the tower at Deerfield was closed they moved the controls to the East End yard office and they remained active for some time.

Watched a solid line of at least 30-40 Csxt gondolas in a row rolling out of the storage area on the west side of Rigby the other day, wonder what that's all about ?

They've run out of places to hold Everett dirty dirt empties so they've sent them that far east.

Over the past year or so I've been noticing a different type of open top highside hoppers coming thru Rigby. I'd seen them in large numbers around NYC and Long Island, as well as around the Boston region, where I believe they carry C&D waste, but never up here previously. They are usually black or grey, and generally have REGX, FWTX, WCTX and a few other reporting marks. They often arrive in groups of 6-12 in a row. I wonder if they are being set at a customer in Maine, or are some type of bridge traffic?
