This eastbound pig train would have been TV-96 which was part of Guilford's short-lived DownEast Express intermodal service between Conrail connection at Worcester and Waterville, ME. TV-95 was the westbound counterpart.

The pig train should be the TV96 Eastbound/TV95 Westbound that went all the way to Waterville, ME. Not sure of the exact dates of operation, but roughly mid-90's to late 90's?

While on Guilford rails, the train was known as the "Break Wind". It is difficult to offer effective intermodal service when your maximum mainline speed at the time was 25 mph.
