I'm doing a little homework and, am hoping that someone can provide an answer. My question is does Pioneer Cold Storage of Chicopee have active rail service? When I google the location the satellite view shows an old spur on the grounds that clearly hasn't been connected to the Conn River main for some time. However, when perusing Indeed's job website there are warehouse positions whose descriptions mention "moving product into trailers or railcars". Reading this and knowing that Google's satellite images are often dated, I am hoping someone can clear this up. Thanks.

The only customer in Chicopee is Hercules Chemical just south of MP S-6.

BF-1 split a switch and is on the ground in Claremont. Looks like all is upright.

BF1 must be fouling the main line, as Amtrak is showing service disruption for #57 and #54.

Is BF1 a Pan Am or New England Central train? Is it a local that comes out of Bellows Falls?

Did they move the job for the slow propane season? If so, it should be going back to BF if it hasn't already.

According to the OP, it was an ED crew.

The crew was an extra crew out of Deerfield, not the normal BF-1 crew.
