If there are no objections or line conflicts before tomorrow at 18:00 EDT, you're in.

I don't think there are any conflicts. Not much in that neck of the woods on this board. The HPR in the SE, then PC, AW, MNTC and maybe another? over there, but I think mostly north of the Carolinas.

PC doesn't go east of Pittsburgh, PA nor south of Louisville, KY so definitely no conflicts with me.

An SD40-2 has been purchased from the Union Pacific after siting in storage for 15 years. We tested it out, and it runs fine. The cab is clean, everything works properly, and since we are low of funds now, we will not be repainting it for a while.
