eb by 205 at 1222. I think it was 502, the right time of day and a shortish train. 2 units, ns power trailing. According to dispatcher on the radio 711 is waiting at Walton for something to get out of the way for him to get to the service and snow yard.

Pontiac Yard local is building its train to Warren. Lots of center beams.
PatC created a monster, 'cause nobody wants to see Don Simon no more they want AARR I'm chopped liver, well if you want AARR this is what I'll give ya, bad humor mixed with irrelevant info that'll make you roll your eyes quicker than a ~Z~ banhammer...
