What was cooking...
Author: Pattenburg

on this Labor day morning along the Lehigh Line in Manville, NJ? I would
say quite a variety of activity in a relatively short span of time. In
sequence by time, the trains observed were as follows:
8:45 CSX Q300: would have CSX 167 (AC44CW) and CSX 9018 (C44-9W) on
this very long train (estimated 143 cars and 550 axles).
8:58 CP 38T: this was the pleasant surprise of my morning! Power would
consist of four SD40-2s, CP 5727, CP 6045, CP 5709 and CP 6055. It
would hold for Q300 at Port Reading Jct before proceeding east on the
Lehigh Line.
9:15 NS 212: Two C40-9Ws, NS 9965 and NS 9936, provided the motive
power for a train consisting of all autoracks and one COFC.
9:24 MA1: would head out of Manville yard with CSX 6071 (GP40-2, ex-
B&O 4172) in charge of two boxcars. MA1 would then hold for two eastbound
NS intermodals at CP Bound Brook.
9:33 NS 20K: would have NS 2747 (SD70M-2) and NS 7555 (ES40DC) for
9:40 NS 24Z: Power was NS 7592 (ES40DC) and NS 9897 (C40-9W).

Nice catch. I was going to be up there this morning but I had to work the Long Branch Drill job last night and did not get done until 7:30AM. One of these days I will bump into you. Matt
