20:03 - L302-24 stopped in the siding at Brighton. 3008 and 120 lead elephant style.
20:36 - L303-24 east thru WE Brighton with 5277 and 5279 leading. They had 55 cars. Thanks Tom49801 for the update.
20:50 - L302 out of the siding at WE Brighton. I counted 98 cars with CSXT 483311 and ..177. They took maybe eight minutes to exit the siding.
In addition, three brand new MWAX covered hoppers numbered 164, 200, and 199 were towards the end. MWAX is the reporting mark for Martin Marietta Materials Inc.
