Bay Colony Railroad - 1/29/2004

January 29, 2004:  This morning's "trash train" was the final Bay Colony train to be pulled by borrowed Cape Cod Central Railroad GP-7 No. 1501, and today it was joined by Bay Colony GP-9 No. 1705.  We begin at Monument Beach, in Bourne MA, where BCLR 1705 and CCCX 1501 are returning to Canal Jct. after dropping off the empty cars at the Otis transfer station.  Once the Yarmouth cars are shoved back onto the bridge, CCCX 1501 will lead the train to the Yarmouth Wye (where it was removed from the train and a waiting crew returned it to Hyannis).  Bay Colony 1705 is left in charge of the train, and we follow them down the South Dennis line.
