Just passed by that set of CEFX hoppers, some box cars, and 1812 at the end... it's all sitting on the GTI yard 21 track at FX. I was too slow to get a photo as we passed it. Anyone going by on an Eastern route trip or Haverhill line should be able to see it.

Today in that same spot is coach 747 in the middle of a set of hoppers, scrap metal and other freight. I searched for '747' but can't find anything. Was it in an accident or is it a planned overhaul?

Not sure if it's going out or coming back though.

1812 was in a South Hampton St yard derailment. 1813 was in a collision on the Old Colony with a pick up truck.

1813 is now listed out of service and awaiting car body repairs?

Not sure exactly what that entails. Exterior damage or interior. Anyone know what happened?

Edit: Just saw above after posted. When was that collision?
