I think i saw this train in Magog a few days ago. There was three engines, two red barns and one leased locomotive.

Yes, they had the 9011/2858 (tunnel motor) and the 9017 over the Sherbrooke and Moosehead subs. When they did the crew change at Derby, they cut the rear two off since they didn't need them. Then at NMJ they swapped the 9011 out for the 2003 and 3803 (B23-7 and GP38-3) for the Searsport Sub.

How long would you say those blades are? 100 feet, maybe longer? Really impressive to see them down at human eye level.
Probably a bit longer, I think they mostly used the old 89' flats.

I drove by the crossing at Dolby and it looks like they are storing box cars on the E. Millinocket branch.
