Saturday Switches Perhaps the Norm?

Postby scrumdiddley92 » Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:46 pm

Got into the Lower Yard of MMA yesterday and found what looked like the normally parked VB-2 with 8569e+RC VB-2+8541w and 7 tanks. Turning around to leave, a crewman showed up and it was soon known that a Searsport run was going to be made. The guy was running solo and would do the RC thing down at the shore and during a quick switch of GAC at Kidder's. Also mentioned was the tanks were for a new customer in the Searsport Irving Farm. Supposedly, they are switched three times a week and specifically asked for Saturday as one of those days. Hopefully, this will provide a somewhat predictable move for MMA out of NMJ on the weekends.

Here are a couple of those pics. The others can be found on NERAIL.
