I'm getting secondhand reports on the train, all I got was that there were two cars behind the engines with "stuff in them". It's my Grandmother giving me the reports, so all I'm sure of is that there's 2 engines (398 and 399) and 2 cars with "stuff".
Really sweet she thinks enough to let you know when she sees a train. I get pics, videos and general reports from friends and family all over the place. Apparently it's my defining quality or something :lol:

What I’m guessing is ONTN is currently building their train. 393 leading the 395 is your power today.
