Q32904 by Howell at 08:47 with CSX 5231+776+8465 and what looked like CN 8858. If it was, its been floating around since D708 picked it up at Peaker awhile ago. 112 cars. Had not see 8465 since 10-8-08. More stone on 329 for the 4th day in a row even though I did not mention he had some yesterday too. Earlier, Q32804 went east at 05:47 with CSX 3066+5268 and 94 cars, 40 stone empties on the rear.

How many coal cars can be tipped & dumped at the same time? Also, do they have just one unloading machine? I've seen videos showing 3 cars at the same time (wasn't a video of West Olive).
