They’ll have something much before then, remember they’ve got some single stack lanes but with the National Gateway project wrapping up they can focus on other obstructed lines.

You'll see every kind of train, some monsters over 200 cars, and you can pace them along route 301 at 60 mph.I can't personally verify it but the guy who did this video of a CWR train headed to the interchange with Eastern Maine Rwy at Mattawamkeag puts it in the description of this video as 136 lb.
