Ballast going east?

Postby arthur d. » Sat May 27, 2017 10:45 am

A known associate has reported seeing blocks of cars loaded with ballast going east in D-2.
Can anyone confirm or deny this, and if true, where is it going?

Have frequently seen short -- half-dozen or so -- blocks of company hoppers EB and WB Gardner and points east. If Trew on the Deerfield Loop is the source, then could well be.

Here's a recent clip of EDPO with 10 loads of stone EB at the Mass-NH state line. No clue on the stone loads where to after that. Most likely Rigby yard.

Thanks to Austin McSwiggin for the video

Some ballast has been dropped in Auburn and points east as of a week or two ago
