Bad Day on The Stony Brook

Loaded coal train has had a "service interruption" earlier in the day. A dozer shoves spilled coal into piles as it moves among helter-skelter coal cars. Wheel sets and parts of trucks in the foreground. The idea was to clear the right of way so that service could be restored on new track and to deal with the car bodies, wheels and trucks, not to mention a few thousand tons of coal on another day. I assume the coal, even on the ground eventually got to New Hampshire Public Service. Photographed about 2000 feet east of Willows Road in Ayer. I am guessing the month, but am pretty sure of the year
