The settlement was just for the request for the NECR to produce material evidence as to how they came up with their maintenance costs. I haven't seen anything to say the proceeding itself was settled but I don't check the STB site often.

It sounds like you're talking about the signals by exit 18 & the salvage yard, but if not there, where? And I have seen those lit up from time to time, but they're mostly dark.
Peace,

That is Northampton South CPR-16, other end of the double track.

Thanks for the correction, I thought I was a bit far south. Gonna have to check it out, and does this mean that they finally replaced the rail as well?

Negative on the rail. The 500' (or so) of old stick rail just north of CPR-18 remains, waiting for the bike path tunnel installation.....

Any time line for the ones at CPR 33 to be replaced?

In a word, no. CPR-1, CPR-33, & CPR-35 need complete changeovers. CPR-9 still needs to get replaced by CPR-8, and CPF-385 still needs new northbound home signals..

Here's 15MB / 329 pages of Pan Am Southern LLC's Reply to New England Central Railroad, Inc.'s Opening Statement And Evidence:

https://www.stb.dot.gov/filings/all.nsf/ba7f93537688b8e5852573210004b318/00e7dd24e356258785257ff60046da4b/$FILE/241126.pdf

Excerpt that reflects the key stumbling block bewteen PAS and NECR:
In its Opening Statement, NECR claims that this is a run-of-the-mill SSW Compensation case and sets forth a value-inplace
methodology (“VIP”) to calculate PAS’s new trackage rights fee. NECR’s VIP yields a 1,389% increase on PAS’s trackage rights fee (poster's note: this equates to
raising PAS' current $0.45 per car mile to $6.70).

Jeez, you'd think PAS was a pharma raising prices like that.

More like they're the patient. That number is NECR's charge to PAS.

Train Fire in Deerfield

Postby B&Mguy » Fri Jul 22, 2016 8:48 pm

I just saw this story on NECN that there is a fire on a train around the area of Keets Road in Deerfield. There was not too much information provided, but from the picture it looks like the fire was in an open hopper car. No word yet if there's any impact to Vermonter service, but since those trains come through earlier in the day there's probably none. Anyone have anymore details about this?

The Northbound Vermonter left Springfield on time, but has lost an increasing amount'
on time for its entire trip and was one hour, 42 minutes late into Essex Jct. VT.
It does not appear that the train fire mentioned above was the issue, since it was
only 19 minutes late at Greenfield...
