A passenger set with the MBTA 1052 is currently tied down on the Danvers Industrial Track in Salem following a mechanical issue.

Which track is that? Is that the one that heads to Peabody?

Just out of couriousily, why do they tie down on Castle Hill instead of going all the way to Peabody. Also noticed they have been tying down here more often than off of Bridge Street recently.




Also, last weekend I noticed the mysterious Box Car on the siding on the other side the tracks form Castle Hill was gone. They cut the brush back and pulled it out. When did they do this?

They were heading back to Boston, not to Peabody. Their engine crapped out on the mainline and eventually got running well enough to be ordered into the yard lead to put away.

The California Oil car was finally removed maybe a month ago. The building was sold and the new owner has no interest in rail service. They'd occasionally try pulling it out every so often over the course of a year, now they finally got it.

Oh, I assumed it was a outbound train that was heading to Peabody that parked there. We passed one yesterday in Chelsea heading north towards Peabody on Train 160.

Same the new owners have no interest in rail service.

Looked like about 8 empties on the tail off Allen's Lane. Shrubbery has grown up that obscures most of the cars.
