In addition, we have our answer as to why DRRR leaves an engine in Woodhaven - makes last-minute return runs much easier, and you don't have to switch out cars.
Even so, I wonder why they didn’t just bring the train down from Red Bank with 752. Maybe 752 had a problem?

So the empties are still at Brick? Or did 2005 go back and pick them up on the way?

Sounds like they may be trying different scenarios to see what works best.

@CharlieL To my knowledge the empties are still at Brick. Maybe they are trying different methods but this one was very strange.

When they have more than 8 cars they won’t be able to fit them on Bricks siding. That amount easily fits at Cross Street or on the Lakewood Team Track.

Big train for Freehold tomorrow…

Edit: 14 cars. 6 or 7 I believe are for Builders General.

Wow. That's a lot of cars for Builders General, they have only gotten 2 or 3 cars in the past, no?

Sometimes they will do this this thing where they don’t order anything for a while only to get one big shipment all at once, but never this big. Biggest train in years on this line. All active customers are getting at least one car from this train except for E.H. Allen.

Wondering how the only 1750 HP GP10 the line has right now will handle this load on the grades. Might get some Notch 8 action!

You sure it's 14? Reason I ask is because they tend to work Hightstown too on Wednesdays and they get similar cars to Prestone/cary.

Everyone stocking up before the railroad strike.

(So don't forget that extra 12-pack of Charmin TP on your next grocery run...don't say I didn't warn you)

@RailsEast Could be. I’ve noticed several customers stocking up on stuff more under C&D than they were under Conrail. Especially Woodhaven…

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Things are about to get interesting...
