at "0 Dark 30" to the warehouses at Hunts Point grocery side. :(

Yesterday at around 2pm, CSX headed north to OP with 3 units (2 SD40-2, SD60M)and around 20 cars. First half was C&D and latter half mixed boxcars.

Wonder if the 2 FICX flat cars went back to CSX for the 3rd attempt to head west to Ohio?

Nothing was changed. That's not what the issue was.

If you don’t mind me asking, what was the issue? Glibly saying it wasn’t x still leaves a through w and y and z as potential causes — unless you don’t know, of course, in which case my sincere apologies.

It could have been a paperwork issue,or something on the FICX flatcars needed to repaired to allow them to be interchanged.
There's also a possibility the chains and binders needed to be tightened up or replaced(aka a securement issue)

Weights on the paperwork were incorrect.

Time to bump this thread a bit. Last Sunday at roughly 11:30am, I saw a train heading to FP. Didn't catch the power but noticed some new blue loaded GACX stone cars with the usual mixed freight. Quite odd for a Sunday movement.

That's actually pretty normal. CSX makes atleast 1 round trip across 7 days a week unless something happens prior.
