B05(?) westbound through Decatur at 18:06 with 2 GP60s bracketing an ES44AC and 2 tank cars. Caught them switching Welch’s in Lawton and waiting for a tardy Amtrak 352 before heading west.

There is also an NS grain train currently being loaded in Decatur.

NS 176 has just got to North Yard....they will come in for 1 in the Class, and will set off only their Head 5 cars over to 23 in the receiving.

NS 9462, NS 9786 are the power. 7 cars coming into North Yard. 2 for Sterling. 9786 is a whiteface unit. Engines are back to back - so the whiteface should lead 121 tomorrow.
