NEW YORK CENTRAL 38 is on train 51(04) to Huntington.

WARRIORS REST was supposed to be on 79(04) from WAS to CLT, but apparently bad-ordered at WAS ... to Ivy City for repairs.

Five by five: 5 Viewliners on the head end of train 98(03) ... 1 baggage 3 sleepers and diner INDIANAPOLIS ... 5 private cars on the rear, which will come off at WAS.

Friendly Admin Note:

Mr Deasy owns PV, and is aware of PV movements. When he posts, it's because he's working a network of known players.

Others: If you don't see it, don't repost someone else's report.

Thanks.

PV photo opportunity ... MOUNT VERNON on train 69 (09) from NYP to MTR, and on train 68 (12) from MTR to NYP. If you are somewhere along NJ Transit's Morris & Essex line between Morristown and the Meadowlands Maintenance Center on Wednesday December 7th and on Tuesday December 13th, you may see an M&E Alco locomotive delivering and retrieving the car.

I'm looking out the window of MOUNT VERNON at Sunnyside Yard and I see Viewliner I diner 8400 INDIANAPOLIS in a consist being inspected on track 36. I'm not sure if it will be departing as train 97 (09), but it will be departing NYP on Friday December 9.

There'd have been a time when a Budd built 10-6 and baggage were not even unique.

Well, look what rolled into Kansas City on the River Runner today...

At the end of December 2016, private car SAN MARINO (PPCX 800270) moved NOL to WAS on train 20 and then WAS to CLT on train 79. I'm told it has been acquired by the Aberdeen, Carolina & Western RR. It is a former Southern Pacific heavyweight business car.
