fromway's post mentions building a pipeline from Searsport to Loring. If I remember correctly
there is an existing pipe line between those two points that back in the day was used to transport
aviation gasoline to Loring AFB and was mothballed when the Base closed. There was talk of
converting it to natural gas but I don't know if that ever happened.

Yes, there is an existing pipeline between Loring and Searsport. I don't know what condition it is in or if they are able to change the direction of flow, I was just stating what was in the article. The reporter was probably just writing from info that was in the press release. As we have read in the past, what we read doesn't always happen. Don't hold your breath on this project.

Looked like three of them on an EB through North East, PA at 06:16 this morning. Ex-NS, likely carrying PRLX marks?

Those are Ontario Northland SD70Ms with flared radiators. Evidently ONR is getting into the loco leasing business? That or they just have a big surge in traffic since they picked up a few already.

The first pair of rebuilt NSBR units will arrive by end of the year meaning they will ship soon from Kentucky
