Thanks for posting this. Very interesting. Shame the hampton branch isn't still in operation or they could have moved them even closer to Seabrook via rail :-)

Yup, it's surprising there is not an unloading point closer to the NH / MA state line! than Portsmouth. I also wonder what the overland route to Seabrook might be, given bridges, power lines, etc. All in all a fascinating move that started by rail!
