BTW, one of your EB trains got another hot axle defect @ DD 129.1. This time not your fault, but you should look into who sent you that crap. all 4 axles on one car...your car dept is going to have some fun tonight! :lol:
Instead of them stopping ASAP, they will contine the extra 5 miles to clear CP annoyacne so your crews can deal with it. :wink:

Employees of the OC&M are now working 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to make sure there are no hot axles.

Well, we will soon have a 3rd main to get your trains out of the way. Look for a patch-in of the two new mains in two weeks.

You'll likely not have to stop much. We'll be able to switch your trains onto the 3rd main and then allow you to merge over the 2nd main and onto the 1st at CP129.

Do you want a direct connection the the CSS&SB Ry at CP Annoyance? We have a connector, but could add diamonds for a small fee

I think we're only gonna sell the SW9's. The SD40-2's are now needed due to the size of the system. Now all GP30's and GP35's are coming out of storage.
