B17 has been getting out earlier now. Yesterday they were in the clear at Wayne Yard before noon. That put them on the road between 8-10am to do their switching at Pro Coil and or contractors.

NS had a bit of a meltdown on the Wabash Line in Romulus today. A downed tree on both tracks caused 4 Westbounds, CP 650, CP 141(?), NS B70 and NS 171 to hold at the diamond. Traffic was held for almost three hours. After the tree was removed, a nice parade of trains, including a race between 650 and that possible 141, passed me. The traffic hold-up began at 3:10pm but didn't fully clear out until around 6:10pm.
