We are short of power at the moment, word is that we are going to use the CSX units to help drop the rail. Of course, with the RR life, everything is subject to change

I took a closer look at these two lines (still in the same spot, going on 10 days now) and the back ends of both lines include mixed freight destined for Middleboro/Taunton customers. One car is a loaded mechanical reefer, a priority car. Those don't sit for ten days. Lucky it's cold out or that thing would be running out of diesel fuel, and it's not in a refuelable location. Something has to be up southeast of Framingham.I'm not sure if its related but according to this thread- https://www.railroad.net/viewtopic.php? ... &start=390 Mass Coastal RR is expected to enter into receivership. Don't they dispatch that line?
