Should be a long day. The round trip from Walton Jct. to Bates takes probably 3-4 hours. Then a run to Elmira which is about another 40 miles past Walton Jct.

back south through mount pleasant at 2:50 with 49 cars.

These increasing train sizes, and consist variety is making a detailed car count increasingly difficult. GLC is doing a great job of bringing in new business!
