418 was re-fitted with the proper fittings yesterday and was on an Alstom test train today, suspect she'll be released for regular passenger duties tomorrow.

No, the 418 was cut and now is assigned to the Northside Work Train. Went
to Wachusett Friday.

Looks like the 418 should end up in Bradford off 2211 tonight.

Did they short a set in Bradford over the weekend?
Screamers are banned from Bradford so I am curious to what's going on.

Was wrong on that post. The 1069 was due to go out on 2211 and return as deadhead 3702.

Not sure where the 418 ended up? 2415 to Fitchburg?

Why are screamers banned from Bradford? I've seen plenty there before

They have agreed to no longer send any up due to noise.

Not sure if it's been noted, but Wed. 9/9 SLC 330 was on a set at North Station about 07:00. In my rush to get my shuttle to work I missed getting the cab car # though. D'oh!
Wondering if I'll see the Haverhill double-tracking finished before I retire...

I believe it's with 1647 but I'm not positive
