Inter-Rail’s repowered Baldwin left the New Boston TDSI facility today on M268. Not sure on where it’s heading but I doubt it’s coming back.

Regarding the meet of L302 & L303 at Brighton, if you videoed L303, I would like to know the number of the gondola that was next to ZVBX 625752.

THANK YOU ADAM !!! (along with all others you report) I suspected that may have been another Ogihara car but did not get the number. I had this car on my list of Ogihara assigned cars but never had a date it arrived at the plant, or ever departed unless this was it's first trip loaded. I was out there on June 10 when L305 sat off four empties and picked up three loads, but one of the empties was ITFX 320132 that I never knew was assigned there.
