PAS Locals at Snake Hill Rd Ayer

Trash loads on the right and empty auto racks on the left are being dragged to downtown Ayer where they will likely be assembled into an ED-9 train bound for E Deerfield and ultimately Norfolk Southern interchange at Mechanicville. Editorial: with any luck, PAS operator will become G&W owned Berkshire & Eastern RR in the next few months assuming STB approves the CSX acquisition of Pan Am Railways. There's only upside for New England shippers.

Amen to your editorial

Guilford/Pan Am makes people yearn for Penn Central
Sort of similar to the bumper sticker seen between 2016-2020: Miss Nixon Now?

CSX ownership an upside? I wouldn't put much faith in that with their "precision railroading" technique of running railroads...

Post PSR CSX is very positive. They are dumping capital like crazy all over the system, bringing back mothballed engines and rebuilding them, and experiencing EPIC traffic growth that are past pre covid volume with no stoppage in sight. Pan Am is on life support, the plug can't be pulled fast enough!
