D708 just by eastbound with csxt 7693 LHF. They only had 5 covered hoppers so another big GE definitely not needed. If equipped with ditch lights on the hammerhead end, are they alllowed to run LHF at track speed or is there a restriction? The fresh air must be nice but wow what a crick in the neck!

If they have ditch lights on the long end (probably not) they can proceed at track speed. If not they can go track speed EXCEPT they must cross public road crossings at 20MPH or less. Major PIA.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.

P371 west at Bangor at 07:33. IDTX 4622, 3 Superliners, IDTX 4615.

Coal loads east at Bangor at 08:26. 2 SD70ACes leading.

Looks like Q326 is east at Porter at 09:24.

Sounds like those coal loads are doubling the hill and are about stalling. Saying doubling is making all the crossings go wild.
