Unsure if the Cadillac crew left town today. As of 1230 this afternoon they were still attempting to get a car back onto the rails on the east end of Selma Yard.

390 and 392 through Temple towards Cadillac at 1552. 28 cars, virtually all of which looked destined for McBain. Very nice- been a long time since I've seen only GP35s on the point.
