Boston & Maine Jeep in Buckingham Branch territory
Title:  Boston & Maine Jeep in Buckingham Branch territory
Description:  You would not believe the action at Doswell today. BBRR is moving cars with 2 engines and crews plus their track crew is replacing ties in this yard at Doswell. If their service today is any indication of the future, they're gonna need a bigger yard!

The work is never done
Title:  The work is never done
Description:  #5 went right to work moving more cars around after #3 pulled out of the yard. I do like the big roads but I've never seen them "hump" like these guys. I think all the hub-bub leading up to the BBRR running the Piedmont Sub is going to turn out to be a bunch of bunk. This is a first class operation!

A face only it's mother could love
Title:  A face only it's mother could love
Description:  CSX 4846 passing BB 3. That's a whole lot of ugly to be in one spot. I guess it'll grow on me with time. I seldom like the new autos when they change styles why should trains be different?
