Any mention of 302?
L302 had his job briefing at 2:58pm but the radio reception for his side of the conversation was bad & all I could determine was he has CSX engine #581 leading & was starting to build his train.

17:54 - L302 thru WE Brighton with 581, 5379, and 4057 leading 91 cars. Calling CH 51 at 17:58.
Two ex-C&NW hoppers with coal, and lots of MOCX hoppers towards the end, in addition to three Cryo-Trans reefers.
ZVBX 625751 and 18021 up front, and two PDNX gondolas numbered 625621 and 625625. Similar style to the ZVBX hoppers which is interesting considering the similar numbers.

Train was backed to West Olive Sunday, when they returned to Holland, went down the West leg to complete the spin of the train. Train was backed into the siding between Waverly and 112th, engine was cut away to get fuel in the Holland yard.

Train is now outbound heading for Chicago and it's next destination to drop some more rail.
