Few minutes ago, the new Conrail job NY-8 got a form d @ Mound for both ways between Todd and Erin. NS 5056 is the engine.
What does this job do?
Run from North Yard to Mound Yard on first shift, switch Chrysler, then tie down leaving the engine for the NY-27 Job to come on duty on afternoons to switch Chrysler, run to Sterling if needed, then return to North Yard in the evening with the glory.

Yesterday evening, a North Yard Job with the NS 5015 took a Boxcar and 3 Tanks down the Terminal East to Mack Yard, presumably for Kace and Clean Earth, but went to switch the docks first.

Nice grab. Being from the east side, I’ve always wanted to catch them going over E Jefferson.

Do they drop cars for the other industries at Mack Yard for another job to work?
