LA-3 at Montvale Yard

LA-3 MEC 505 had just finished switching Tighe Logistics up the tracks in Woburn, MA and arrives to switch Tighe Logistics in Winchester, MA. These locations are 2 out of 3 customers remaining alone the MBTA's New Hampshire Mainline (Lowell Line) and still receive regular service. This was the site of the former Montvale Yard where B&M locals served many customers. To my left is a spur which remains across Holton St which once had about a handful of customers.

Great shot. Is there a way for the business to load/unload between the cars on separate tracks (like a ramp that goes across between the cars) or does the railroad have to reposition the cars after one set is done?

They place a dockplate between the cars to unload the outside ones. This warehouse can take upto 16 cars at a given time.
