Grafton & Upton GU-1 crosses Green St Hopedale MA

On Thursday 5/27/21, a 12 car GU-1 arrived Hopedale from N Grafton powered by the entire G&U operating roster. Two MP15ACs led the consist of 2 box cars and 10 centerbeams of sheetrock with the leased GATX MP15AC on the marker. At Hopedale the two lead engines split up to top & tail the 2 box cars south to BlueLinx at Bellingham, shown here emerging from the tree tunnel at the Green St crossing at Hopedale. That's the crossing flagger's SUV at the right of the frame - he's busy guy sprinting ahead of the train as only a few of G&U's crossings have automatic signals.
