Re: Portland Waterfront Rail Ops (Yard 8, Intermodal, etc)

In this video below, thanks to "Isaiahs Trains", it appears that Poland Spring may have broken their lease with Eimskip. Note the 2nd half of this 104 car train has 59 mongrel unmarked containers on a PO/AY. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8WwY5V0Y5w" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: Downeaster Trackwork & Upgrades

Interesting video by Dan Comick showing an Amtrak "extra" on the Brunswick branch with MBTA mow cars. Not sure if the tanker is propane or diesel fuel. I don't see any markings but it looks like at one time it was used as a ethanol car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HBNZrearFU" onclick="window.op...

Re: Pan Am Southern / Patriot Corridor Discussion

Couple of varied comments: I've read on the Pan Am Railfans Facebook page that some non-Eimskip containers have have been eyeballed going from Ayer to Mattawamkeag and presumably onto Saint John. Is it possible that NS/PAS is testing the Saint John/Maritimes to/from the midwest market? The odd-ball...

Re: Portland Waterfront Rail Ops (Yard 8, Intermodal, etc)

Do we know that these Eimskip containers on Q403 are hauling Poland Springs water or could they be hauling something else like Icelandic fish? The main purpose of Emskip coming to the port of Portland is to have quick access to the Eastern market distribution areas. One of their biggest customers i...

Re: Portland Waterfront Rail Ops (Yard 8, Intermodal, etc)

Thanks to Sixteen Ave Productions, [Austin] for this video of SEPO shot on 5/12. Very interesting to know where the last 99 well cars are headed. Any thought's?

Re: Portsmouth Branch Activity

Here are several photo's of the new bridge. It showing the lift deck severs as both road and rail use. Note the vehicle crossing gates on both sides of the lift. When a train is approaching, the the lift is lowered to the lower position for rail traffic. photo's:  https://search.aol.com/aol/image?q=...

Yup, steel for BIW into the Harding Plant in Brunswick.

The two CMA/CGM containers from NBSR east on Pan Am's EDPO. Thanks to Eli Almonte for the good catch.

Re: "Up North" Gawking (District 1 sightings)

What is unreal about moving a couple cars? That is what railroads do. It's going to take years, and track improvements to get the Keag traffic back where it was. I didn't think they would have traffic already from the new steamship line in Saint John. Could it be possible that this container may ha...

Re: Activity on the Mountain Branch (Portland to Westbrook)

Does Pan Am have any active customers besides propane at the branch that comes off Deering Junction? Not sure what it's called. I think Blue Linx, formally Georgia Pacific Co. on Warren ave. is still receiving carloads of plywood. Here's the location; https://www.google.com/maps/@43.6859367,-70.318...

Re: Portland Waterfront Rail Ops (Yard 8, Intermodal, etc)

The Millinocket area wouldn't pencil cost wise for Poland Springs. With that location, your talking a second railroad, CMQ, just to move their product to NMJ.

Re: Ballast going east?

Here's a recent clip of EDPO with 10 loads of stone EB at the Mass-NH state line. No clue on the stone loads where to after that. Most likely Rigby yard.

Another excellent video of the same train. This one is from Norfkhazad. At 1:30 in the clip you'll see the 5-pack well car, but not with JB Hunt containers. Enjoy;

Re: Business Train Discussion (ST 100, 101 & 102; PAR 1 & 2)

Thanks to Bruce Nelson for the photo of the OCS units mixed in with freight power on WAAY. A bit hard to tell, but it appears that PAR 1&2 and the #615 between them are all spiffed up. Maybe those three will haul the circus train from Ayer to Manchester. http://photos.nerail.org/showpic/?photo=2017...
