The GRE guys faked me out yesterday. They showed up later and went to Lowell to get a half dozen hoppers and the 2 MP wire gons. Looks like just 1 person to do Amtrak this morning. Cab car will be on the rear today. No visit from NS. MQT NB across the diamond at 6:35, missed the power.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to provide the updates as I had in the past. Can't go into the reasoning, but hope to have the ability to see into my magic 8-ball again soon. I'll still give updates though for whatever I hear/see over the waves.

Zack that sucks. Did you get a visit from some CSX special agents or something or did the FBI come knocking on your door? :cry:

Oh, fiddle. We'll all just have to work harder as an integrated team to fill the gap this leaves! Everyone get your scanners on...

Out on lunch, heard D802 was coming south across Riley St.. went down near the Holland depot...sun shining, two bright newer BNSF units come around the corner...and no cars trailing... ArGH!!! was very much hoping they were pulling empties, but alas..they weren't.

Let's see if I can shake this Magic 8-ball... whoa, after a good hard shake, it's working again!

Well, that was shortlived without access eh? Got another way in... Zack's happy again :)

As another mention, I'm headed out early tomorrow morning for Charleston. Won't be back until early Tuesday morning, so updates will be very limited if any. I'll probably try to poke around CSX land while I'm there.
