I'm in Boston for the next week and took a ride by Readville today and saw the fewest amount of cars in the yard I've ever seen. Is this just a rare occurrence and because I went to visit on a Saturday? Or has this been a regular thing?

Where is the Lumber coming from? I still don't understand where these cars are coming from and why they make it to Readville just to end up back in Framingham. Not any of these go to Boston anymore, correct?

I think Readville is holding its own with new business to the old Stop & Shop DC starting up during the past few months. Home Depot's distribution center in Norwood receives lumber on centerbeam flatcars originating from the US & Canadian west, the southeast and eastern Canaada as well as lumber/products and plywood in boxcars, too, via Readville.

How about Cohenno and Trask on the Stoughton branch? Are they still receiving rail?
