327 REPORT
so much easier to write down engines and numbers when 327 goes main to siding at east wy , then if they go main to main at east wy at track speed
as for yesterdays train , sorry about the extra engine reported on 327, 99% of the time all extra power is on the headend and not with the mid dpu
like yesterday.
so on to today
327 by 19.1 - 735a 610 axles - 8003'
327 main to siding 112th - 739a
800 ld and 562 trail - 72 cars - dpu 3063 - 76 cars
working waverly - conductor says 1, 2 and 3 or 23? for a pickup today , no mention of setoff
