hi tom
as of 650p a d job has not run the 530 and 7010 lite to wyoming.
they won't be serviced at wyoming as all the traacks to the engine
house have been removed and the engine hse personnel have been
removed from service. they can refuel by calling j&h oil for a fuel
truck to go to the service track and refuel them, but the last i knew
they have a fuel pad at west olive yet? maybe 705 will have dpu power
to exchange for the 530 and 7010 to go east on the 706 when it runs.
326's power wasn't dpu today

I heard D802 on the scanner calling out a Stop signal at the Wye while waiting for D702 to make its move into the Dock Track. And as far as "service" goes, that was D802's words on the scanner, too. So, I don't know much more beyond that. I did hear D802's cab driver at West Olive telling them there was some kind of construction going on & they wouldn't be able to get by the gate there.

Give me 7 days!
