VRS GMRC Train 263-26 at Chester Depot

Rolling through the quaint village of Chester Depot, Green Mountain Railroad Train 263-26, led by Vermont Railway EMD SD70M-2 431 and GATX EMD GP38-2 2215, passes the former Rutland Railroad Station, which once contained the offices of the Green Mountain Railroad Corporation when they were an independent company. Now the Green Mountain Railroad Corp. is operated by the Vermont Rail System as a subsidiary and it's freight operations are based out of Rutland. The first four cars in the consist, open-top ballast hoppers, were emptied along the mainline in Okemo as part of a project to upgrade the track condition of the Green Mountain Gateway. The remaining twenty-seven cars are heading to Riverside Yard to be handed off to Pan Am Railways for shipment to some of the paper mills near Portland, Maine.
