Anybody in Walpole on Friday 6/11 ?

Postby CSX Conductor » Sat Jun 12, 2004 3:29 pm

Anyone in Mass see the FRA's geometry train on Friday? As far as I know it travelled the B&A from Framingham to Boston, back to CP-21 in Framingham and then took a round-trip on the Framingham Secondary to Mansfield via Medfield Jct and Walpole.

Anybody in Walpole at or near the commuter rail station see it go by? It went south at about 300PM....and returned north sometime around 430PM.

Anybody have any photos of the equipment used?

Hey Dave, according to someone on a Yahoo group, it was still in Nevins Yard in Framingham today, perhaps it will head east tomorrow.

Here's a shot that the gentleman got of it, pretty ugly.

No worries. It happens on sites with dynamic URL's. Nothing to be sad about.
