What appeared to be a rail grinder headed north at Katonah around 4:15am this morning, on my way back it was laying up on the old King Lumber siding at Goldens Bridge.

The 108 has been delivered and in service for a couple of weeks now.
If there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.
This is the new Buddsilverliner269.
