CR7876, do you know how often OEG gets cars? I’d like to catch some Browns yard locals soon. Anyone have a list of the current customers?

Yeah I'd like that too. It would be pretty handy . . .

OEG moved into the old Minteq site just west of the yard, they get the coil cars.


Anyone know when or what days OEG gets switched out? Or is done random and as needed?

Probably on an as-needed basis, but I believe they were in there yesterday a little after 1:00 in the afternoon. SA-3 did the work as I understand...
