4452 didn't sound too good on tonight's run. The engine is making an unusual whining noise. He also had trouble Old Tavern Road. The train crossed the road at like 5 mph but by the time the end of the train had passed it was barely moving at all, despite notching up for the slight grade there.

Looks like 6228 is back in the yard; it was spotted on OI-16 yesterday afternoon heading to Browns

Be on the lookout for NS 5628 tomorrow, as it may make its first trip down the Southern. 5628 sports a GP40 shell, but is internally a GP38-2

It's a Frankenstein, lol. Was it rebuilt after a wreck or something?

Currently waiting for SA38 to drill Woodhaven. They were flying down the southern today, and arrived at Lakewood around 7:00 PM

SA38 has been sitting outside Woodhaven for almost half an hour without moving...

Per a source, the train is set to have NS 5628 and CSX 4452 for power. There should be about 14 Woodhavens, a tank, and a surprise (hint: it’s a box car at the head end)
