January 27, 2004:  Bay Colony has borrowed Cape Cod Central Railroad GP-7 No. 1501, and it's the power for this morning's trash train.  We begin at Back River, in Bourne MA, where CCCX 1501 is returning to Canal Jct. after dropping off the empty cars at the Otis transfer station.  Once they shove the Yarmouth cars back onto the bridge, they head down the Cape Main destined for Yarmouth.  We catch them switching flyash cars at Gallo Construction underneath the Sagamore Bridge, where they drop off an empty car and pick up one load, and then follow them on the rest of their journey to Yarmouth.  The second car on this morning's train is a flatcar carrying four empty containers, used to transport sludge loaded at the Yarmouth transfer station.
