Saw a work train heading east bound through Mineola during the early afternoon with two MP15's on the front and two on the rear sandwiching a string of welded rail cars and a back hoe in one of the gons.

#152 and #166 were seen this morning at 10:40 AM this morning pulling tie cars westbound down to Queens as it went by New Hyde Park. It came back light eastbound past New Hyde Park this afternoon at 2:35/2:36 PM as it was headed back to Hicksville. I noticed that there was no Jamaica switcher today.

Saw the same power just east of Jamaica around 12:45 pm this afternoon. It was headed westbound and took the empty welded rail train on the "Lower Montauk" NYAR Secondary to Fresh Pond to be sent offline. Also too 158 was the Jamaica switcher as of this evening

When you say an engine is the Jamaica switcher, do you mean it's the protect engine or does it actually do switching?
