There are a couple of HCl tank cars sitting on the lead right next to the Sullivan Square station platforms again this morning, despite the flak and bad press Guilford received from last week's incident. I bet the neighbors will howl, but GTI is well known for doing as it pleases, regardless.

To be fair, spotting cars of all kinds here is a longstanding practice, done perfectly safely and without incident for many years. I'd think, however, that GTI would consider telling the crew to spot their cars someplace nearby but more unobtrusive, at least until the memory of this recent incident fades a bit. Just two or three hundred feet further up the Yard 21 lead would do, because they'd be further away from and less visible to abutters and Orange Line riders up there, but equally accessible to BO-1's crew.

Somebody must have been listening in! This morning's cut of cars is indeed spotted further up the lead, under the Broadway(?) overhead bridge.

Over on the Guilford forum , it states that GuilfordFinally broke their silence....and immediately began to pass the buck !!! Its apparently" all Eastman Gelatins' fault"in the first place for ordering the stuff and having Guilford ship it to them. Guilford's going to try to use it as an excuse to embargo freight service to the North Shore. Again!!!.
