To borrow Mr. Lustig's format;

Does anyone know what happened to:

381 (13), Carl Sandburg?

I observed it passing some 2hrs late.

OK, the weather is cold, but there is no snow on the ground or coming down (that's Monday). Of interest, the consist is an SC-44 and four A-I's. No Horizons, no Food car (maybe a panic box).

I can almost guess; the Horizons said "baby it's cold outside", and Lumber Street had to scramble and scrounge some A-I's from "HOONOSWARE".

So much for "your trip is weatherproof".

50 got stuck behind a dead crewless freight at Mauzy, whose crew had been used to dogcatch yet another freight ahead of it.

A couple of NY Empire Service oddities this morning....

Train 280 got stopped at the I-90 overpass at Whitesboro (roughly 4/5th of the way between Rome and Utica), and then backed up (at roughly 20 mph) to Rome station and then sat for an hour and went into Service Disruption. Following train 284 was on time at SYR and ended up 45 minutes down out of Rome.

Train 48 running about 3.5 hours down at ROC went from 77 MPH at Wayneport Rd to 0 MPH just a half mile past Wayneport Rd (between Fairport and Macedon) and has not moved for the past 2.5 hours. 63 got past 48's location at reduced speed. 64 currently looks like its stopped close behind or alongside 48.

There were power problems at NYP last night (the 11th) at around 5:15pm. My 5:25pm westbound regional departure from EWR was ~2 1/2 hours late.

They were stacking eastbound trains at EWR. For ~15 minutes two NYP bound regionals were tail to nose stopped on the eastbound platform and the NYP bound Silver Star was stopped on the westbound platform.

I caught sight of the Northbound Crescent this morning in the daylight of High Point NC. Had to be at least 5 hours late.
