August 12, 2004:  Bay Colony GP-9 number 1706 is in charge of this afternoon's trash train.  Upon reaching the Yarmouth Wye with their seven loaded trash cars, and one loaded flyash car, they cut off and ran light engine down the Cape Main in a very rare trip to Hyannis.  At Hyannis they pick up five ex. Long Island Railroad coaches from the Cape Cod Central Railroad.  They then return to the Wye, pick up the rest of their train, and continue north to Canal Junction.  At Canal Jct. they leave their train on the Cape Main and proceed down the Falmouth Line to pick up cars from the Otis trash transfer station.  Due to new speed restrictions put in place on the Falmouth Line, it was dark before they returned to Canal Jct. and crossed the railroad bridge.  (Note, the first photo was taken on 8/11/04, but the remainder are from 8/12/04)
