Riding the T to the big city a few weeks ago. I noticed a PAR boxcar somewhere between the main and what I believe is Canal street. judging from the foliage, its been there a while. Does anyone know what that's about?

The boxcar of intrigue has returned??? :wink:


That's some long-shuttered old customer who parks an old piece of crap car there for months on end to keep a toehold on some contractual legalese over use of that siding opposite side of the tracks from the Cedar Hill leads. Every couple of years it makes an appearance...sits there rusting for a few months...then disappears as mysteriously as it appears. Seemingly the same exact boxcar every time. You'll have to do a board search for past sightings, but this has been happening on-again/off-again for well over a decade.

There's 0.0% chance of a new customer ever landing along Canal with how tiny the siding and its abutting buildings are. Dropoffs at North St. would be far more lucrative even if it's just a single tank of heating oil being transloaded to one of the oil delivery places in downtown. No one's ever teased out a plausible explanation for what that ex-customer's endgame is for that siding by playing these legalese games to prove activity. They just keep ordering that lone empty boxcar movement like clockwork every couple years for reasons known only to them.
