I believe that to be the only low-clearance point between Rigby and Danville.

What are speeds like up there now? Is CSX moving any more freight than PAR?Define NH. Do you mean the Northern Mainline? If so no major work has been done. Their focus currently is getting the Keag line back into service.

I heard that a crew was working between 7.8 and ?They are working on the detector and AEI at 7.8 (Temple St, West Boylston). 427 has been getting a form D from MPX25 to MPX8 this week, so I believe they're track speed probably up to MPX10 or so (the reservoir causeway) then walking speed to 10 through the working limits.
