OK, it still is the "GTW LOCAL" train! This loco is nice, but it's not the same without "
GTW POWER!!!!" :|

Ugh. Nasty story all around.

If I'm reading ATCS correctly, it looks like a train just made the turn north on to the Holly Sub from the Shoreline Sub. If that's L503, I wonder what it will do.

Pontiac yard is looking really crowded and there is a long line of racks laid up to almost Scott Lake Rd.
