Switching the Yard

Saturday, Nov. 10th marked the first official movement into the new yard. In the early afternoon, Plymouth 584 and caboose 303 were guided onto track 5 (the future RIP, as tracks 1-4 will lead car into the car barns), with brakeman Thurman doing the honors. Before heading back up to the granary, the caboose hop was spotted up against the wheel stops for a photo op to document the occasion. The move was overseen by CMO Reader, who found no problems.

Shoving back…

On the spot!

While the “Cuscatlan” remains yet to be restored, there
was other varnish to be seen at the Santa Margarita Ranch…

Pugs do the darndest things…

Vulcan #2 has been withdrawn from service
until further notice. Porter #3 is now first out.
