The cars in Winchester are in storage for now.

The ballast cars on the west end of the Grand Jct were not picked up by the extra due
some trainline/air issues. Simply ran out of time to fiddle with them further and still
make Middleboro.

[url][/url]Tonight, there was a fairly small LORAM grinder out doing its thing on the Old Colony Line around the Neponset River Bridge.

I'd imagine they'll be found elsewhere on the system throughout the week.
