If its that much of an issue the NS could weigh it at Port Morris too. I don't think this is a big of an issue. Most humps have scales built into them. Also depending on the type of scrap getting loaded, the car might not be close at all to getting overloaded.

Did a third engine ever make it out to the DRRV? Last I read a few weeks ago the one coming up from Fairless PA developed a hot box and got sidelined.... haven't heard anything since.

There are photos in facebook groups of a few of the black engines working the branch lines. I believe SW1500.
A third ex W&W blue SW900 was supposed to join them, but had brake or wheel issues enroute. Dont know if its still coming.
