MMRR made another motor swap today with the 740 in Genesee Yard. 3868 went in early for it's 92 day inspection it seems like and is back on the MMRR, still facing west. 3867 returned to the HESR.

Yeah I saw it after they pulled their cut of cars off the diamond, but didn't bother to include it. My guess is that MQT will grab it on the way down this morning...

It sounds like Viking Forest Products is getting centerbeams of lumber in Fremont. Good to see more business on the MS.
