JAIL came north again to interchange w CSX. 3 boxcars.

Now in Ensel with a cut of empty coal cars. CSX is using them to go back and forth over signals to test out crossing signals supposedly as they keep backing up and going forward while maintainers are working

Looks like yesterday they made two runs to Lowell with hoppers per this thread- unless you mean something else?

Shortline-related note, there were 4 IAIS hoppers on the back of Q326 today for King Milling. First King cars that have come via CSX in quite some time.
