Doesn't Amtrak's "Mapleleaf" run that track also? There has been some conjecture that the Mapleleaf was the target of the terrorist plot in Canada.

About a week ago, I came down Colby road, and the lights on the gate were stuck on, and one arm was stuck down, even though there was no train in sight. So I have a feeling there was some sort of issue going on. There are also new railroad ties laid next to the tracks throughout that entire stretch, so they may be replacing the ties tonight.
