Do you still have some covered hoppers for sale? DERR would like to buy seven of them and put them in grain shuttle service between our two elevators and the Anderson's in Toledo. I'm no covered hopper expert, so could you tell me which ones would be better for this service? Also, what condition are they in?

Yesterday was the first day since November 12th that an Alco ran on a train.

Also PS2 3 bay CH's will do fine, they are in great condition and are painted in grey, they are stored in Waterville along with the stone hoppers. Price for each is 35,000 since these are newer.

OK, thanks for the info! I'll take seven of them for $245,000 in all. Go ahead and drop them in our yard of Delphos on the next train...

G001 took the siding at Continental and waited for G002 to pass. G001 ended up getting recrewed due to a long wait. Its sitting in the siding still with a crew called for 23:00 EST.

G002 has also tied down in Delphos Yard with a crew called at 23:30 EST to go north.

Y005 is currently arranging 28 cars from the DERR to go north on G002 tonight. These cars have been sitting in the yard since last Thursday. It is more efficient to take a lot of them north rather than make more runs north for each set. G002-99 will have TSCR 6033(C40-8W), TSCR 5MSRR 567(C424), MSRR 4727(GP40), and MSRR 884(C424) with 88 cars.

Y005 with MSRR 7738(S2) will set out 7 cars for Central Soya and 6 empty hoppers for the DERR.

WD09 (Delphos Work train) shoved north of the MSRR junction about an hour and a half ago. Leading the shove northward was caboose #3109, which was also full of workmen, followed by a carload of ballast, the panel switch gon, a boxcar, and SD35 #1303 in WM colors. DERR and MSRR crews have already unloaded the switch, and are currently working on some wiring for the signals. Removal of the old switch should start in about 30 minutes...

Roger that, lol. We looked over the signals, and they look pretty good for first being installed in 1939. Hopefully will have the whole thing done by tonight, but we may work into Sunday if needed...

Crews are out again today, finishing up some wiring and cutting over the signals. Two on the Maumee Southern, and one on the DERR. We will be testing out all the aspects before cutting them completely over, and putting them in control of your offices in Delphos...

The signals were successfully cut over this afternoon, and are now in control of your office at Delphos. We even ran our SD35s through it a few times to make sure it all runs smooth. What shall we call this junction?

Just a heads-up, the DERR has an empty stone train waiting up in Toledo to come back south. Wondering if the MSRR could bring it back down to Delphos tonight?
