Out and About ..... 11 March 2023
Author: DTWilson

1) Our Saturday starts with L104-10 coming west with 2 cars of plastic pellets for the Sealed Air Facility in Keyser, WV. L104 and L105 are Cumberland, MD based Yard Jobs that have "Expanded Territory" that includes Keyser, WV.

Due to a drag tied down at Beall Street in Cumberland, L104 came west on track 1 and crossed over to track 2 at Keyser. Photo here shows L104 shoving back east towards the Keyser Industrial Park.

2) L104-10 in the Keyser Industrial Park swamping the loads for empties.

3) L165-10 (Cumberland, MD to Grafton, WV Local) westbound on Bull Neck Curve at the Keyser Industrial Park.
