You never know what you will find these days lurking around Waterville Yard. In the past two years the shops have remained a vital part of what is now the New England Division of CSX, providing space to store lines of out of service CSX and MEC EMD's as well as get older CSX locomotives previously stored elsewhere on their system reactivated and up and running.
As the afternoon sun shines over the west end of the yard things are quiet as CSXT 8873 - MEC 7545; just in from Hermon on L071 sits with the L061 yard power; MEC 305 - MEC 315.
About a half hour later an enginehouse crew would take these units to the service area and pull four MEC lettered locomotives up to this spot for the night's L070 power for Portland.
