I miss the 24Z train schedule
Author: Darthsimpletext

24Z was so reliable for seeing most mornings and mid days when railfanning between Hershey and abrams. I think i caught it a dozen times in a large variety of locations. The most special moment was filming him pass while railfanning with an engineers dad who watched 24Z as the dads son roared by onboard 24Z. The run is about as equivalent as 4 hours working at cvs part time. I know i might never see 24Z again but what about the engineers son driving the 24Z? which train would they give him if a train driven conveniently in the middle of the day is abolished? Does he have to get up pretty early to drive a train that might be too early to see in the morning?

Probably a lot would depend on where he stands on the seniority list.  Does he have enough whiskers to bump someone off of another run or he'll to the extra board?

Nick:  "Water under the bridge" now. You should've brought doughnuts. You might even have been able to finagle a cab ride and he might've let you steer.
