Remarks & Notes 
On a beautiful March 9th, 2020, Central Maine & Quebec's Searsport turn was seen returning from a day of switching along the Maine shoreline. The "CIT" GP38s had things well in hand as they approached the middle crossing of Muskrat Farm Road in Stockton Springs, ME with train #211. Even with the pending acquisition of the Central Maine & Quebec by Canadian Pacific, things remain pretty much the same everywhere on the CMQ system except for occasional CP visitors on the mainline. As far as the Searsport Branch, GP38s have seemed to recently take over the last real stronghold of the remaining B23-7s that had become common here since the early 2000s under Montreal, Maine & Atlantic and Central Maine & Quebec. Stranger still will be the colors of Canadian Pacific down here on the south end of the old BAR. Having had a long established history in Maine for over 100 years until the mid 1990s, CP is now finding itself returning to the haunts it bailed out of a quarter century ago. Not sure they realize it, buy CP has the "little" guys such as CMQ and Irving to thank for retaining old and building new customer bases that will continue to be an intricate part of things moving ahead after 2020.
