3249, about 5 gons and the work caboose just went south through MIT; it appears that the line is open again.

Correct!

The Amtrak Boston Chief sent out a text a little after 4pm Friday stating that the Grand Jct was restored to normal service.

Now if Buba will put B721 back on. He hates that job. But alas the job it will have to shift to PamAm one day as UP get rid of the 15Ft Mech Refers and the 17Ft new Refers can't fit under Memorial Drive. Unless the ghost of Pat can shove them under that bridge as he tried once.

Bubba sure would love to get rid of as many local customers as he can. It's a shame that CSXT doesn't care about their customers and often tries to discourage them and make them go away.

PAR used to do the same. Between NS handling west of Ayer and PAR management having a change of attitude, traffic is up and from what I hear, customers are happier than in years past.

Returning back to topic, I never did catch the extras on the Ayer-Worcester trackage, but I did catch a few of them in Ayer, including one heading inbound lead by AMTK 175.

I thought bridge work was complete. Why the detour trains still?
