Almost exactly 1 hour from Poland Spring Distributing in White Plains, NY and about 20 minutes closer drive time than Plainville.

F-line to Dudley via Park wrote:Might do some more 'fanning today, since I haven't gotten a direct look at Plainville Yard yet. Saw PL-1 canned on the Highland near the Route 10 grade crossing behind the ex-GE/now-UHaul property for several hours Friday (maybe an overfull yard?), but otherwise a typically quiet holiday weekend for the RR in Plainville as you'd expect.

Are you sure that wasn't PLED waiting for departure? I have seen this on Tuesday and Friday in the past.

That was PLED-07 that was put together with 3 units and waiting for a crew to take it north on Tuesday 11/7.
PL-1 had made the train up.
