Father's Day 92.....Late.....Again
Author: scraphauler

Father's Day 2022 dawned with a beautiful sunrise and comfortable temperatures in the Sandhills of North Carolina.  The family took me out for breakfast in Southern Pines where I noticed there where people with luggage milling about on the platform,   Right around 10AM, these folks have conceivably been waiting for over 3 hours and unfortunately, their wait is only half done.  Nearly 3 hours later and 5 miles to the south, we find the nearly 6 hour tardy #92 accelerating out of Aberdeen NC, passing the former Aberdeen Union Station (ACL, SOU, A&R).  92 held the main here for about 10 minute waiting on a set of CSXT southbound lite engines to clear up (appears to possibly be operating on L619's symbol).  92 had a 6th coach on it - not sure if it was deadhead or revenue.

I have to wonder if the late time-keeping for 91/92 will just get worse when 97/98 come back on line (IF they actually come back on line).  Sorry to be pessimistic.

Elctroliner, you're right, it's a big if for the restoration of 98/97, but what's up with 91 and 92 running late!
