I'm slowly learning your codes, but what/where is/are. GL and FG west limits please?
  by jaymac
 
The GL WLs are east of the Fitchburg platform and are for the easterly junction of the Controlled Siding and the #1. Presently, they are approach-lit. The #2 is not part of the circuitry. The westerly junction of the Controlled Siding and the #1 is signaled by the 330 WLs and ELs, also presently approach-lit.
The FG WLs are by the Bemis Road UGB near the IC Credit Union.
The 330.8 WBs and the EB staggers for the 330s are still constant-on, but mebbe that'll change.

Thank you. Are these direct abbreviations for something or just random designations?

0255-0443/05-21-2021 started off with D-3 garble and ended with D-2 clarity, plus a cue for a jaymac commentary. Sporadic Yard Channel garble -- sounding sometimes like car countdowns -- was the early order of activity, followed at 0310 with more D-3 garble. At 0314, a breaking D-2 would advise somebody about the 7541 and a stop at Meadowcroft Street.
0325 was when the 333 WLs were dark and D-3 would reach out to FI-3, garble following at 0327, and Road-side garble following that at 0329. The 334 ELs would be at Stop and the 334 1 stagger and 335s dark.
There was occasional garble WB up Da Hill, an unattributable "Back it up 5" being the sole clarity.
The 345 ELs were at Stop and the 345 1 WL at Clear, dark NSs 6954, 4344, and 3644 sitting on 1 at the platform, the rest of 22K to the west. By Chair City Oil there was a rack in the yard, but whatever else might be there was pretty much obscured. Dunno what 22K's status might be as far as a recrew and never heard yarding instructions.
At 0339, D-3 had answered Q427 and fulfilled their Form D G319 at the same minute. Form D G301 to 427 for MP X25 to Burncoat was made effective at 0341. The 426 and 427 power IDs were lost cuzza Gardner propagation variables. A request for time into DCS would also come, and that would seemingly come a few into the EB trip at 0348 when D-3 answered and then rogered 427, some Yard Channel garble following. Crossing noise for X7.8? That would come at 0534.
At 0353, the 333 WLs were dark, and further east the 330.8 WBs were at Clear All dark were the 330 WLs and ELs and the GL and FG WLs.
0407 was when NewBlue 5963 was sitting dark, solo, and west-facing in the FI-1/2 parking spot, and 0413 was when the EB staggers for Derby were likewise dark.
0421 would be the start of D-2 reach outs to a Track Car, IDable at 0427 and again at 0429 as the 567, mebbe making contact but -- given later developments -- probably not. At 0437, D-3 would reach out to AYPO, but the Yard Channel is garble-prone, and that's just what happened.
Now it was back to D-2 with Form D G202 to the 567, a Line 4 for all tracks between EL and WL of CPF-BY, time effective 0443. Dunno what antenna D-2 was on, but it does seem strange that there were problems contacting a TC at BY.
The 05-19 fatality at Newington gives unneeded proof that railroading is dangerous. With danger comes stress, stress that is only increased by unreliable communications, stress that can affect both job performance and health or worse. Hopefully, CSXT/B&E will improve communications reliability so there will be fewer true horror stories.

You're more than welcome.
PAR ETT #3 6-15-2014.pdf was posted a bit back by johnpbarlow. Unfortunately, it predates the Wachusett Extension and some other changes, but it may fill in some gaps. If there's a more up-to-date entry on line, many of us would like to know about it.

0255-0445/05-24-2021 was easy on the scanner batteries only cuzza so few receptions. The P&W Dispatcher St. Albans did offer proof of function at 0300, but company proof -- Yard Channel hash -- would wait until 0307.
0321 was when D-3 reached out to AY-3 and -- contact having been established -- then went into hash mode. 2 later, a probable "22K" emerged from another hash sandwich, but dunno if to, from, or about.
An extended period of radio silence would now start. At 0328, the 333 WLs were dark, the usual displays and lack of displays following.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and from the easterly FP to just west of Royal Steam Heater, Yard 2 had an unplacarded tank, 4 CRYO-TRANSes, and then loaded racks. Yard 4 was pretty much FP-FP with racks on the east -- dunno loads or MTs -- and then general the rest of the way. It should have been noted earlier, but in Dunks obits, the 1 by the Pearson Boulevard UGB has closed. Guessing that Covid was the deciding factor.
At the start of the EB leg, D-3 would reach out to AY-3 with the 7627 to give a 241 for 1 east to 1 at CPF-AY, and except for a few short spurts of static, things would next go back to quiet.
The 333 WLs were dark at 0357. At 0400, there was a breaking FI-2/D-3 exchange, they want to go East Side to West and he OKing them on signal indication.Further east, the 330.8 WBs showed a Stop for 1 and a Clear for 2, mebbe showing that 400 would be crossing over at 333. The 330 WLs and GL WLs were dark, but the 330 ELs were all at Stop, FI-2 being east of the FG WLs on 2.
At 0404, there was D-3 garble that included a roger that and an OK down to 312. AY-5 would make themselves heard later, so mebbe them.
0408 was when a call of a Restricting plus an OK to come back came on, followed by an eyeball confirmation of a Restricting for the FG 2 WL getting dropped by a long string of covered hoppers being shoved east by NewBlue 5963. The covered hoppers would be going to FMW, and yes, the FI-1/2 parking spot was MT.
Just for frustration's sake, there was more Yard Channel hash at 0419, probably FI-2. 4 later, the EB staggers for Derby were dark, and in 1 more minute, FI-2 advised D-3 they wanted to go West Side to East, an OK on signal indication to follow. Guessing the hoppers were MTs heading west.
Sufficient elevation on I-190 SB permitted the 0427 hearing of "AY-5, back up 12," and there would be sparse garbles for the balance of the trip, but naught clearly IDable for the entire trip to, from, or about so many of the usual stars of radio.

0255-0450/05-16-2021 presented servings of hash, but few incidences of clarity. This time, D-3's 0300 answering of AY-3 followed by a roger was ahead of the P&W Dispatcher for proof of scanner function.
Before the full yet peek-a-boo moon got low enough on the horizon to pick up some color, it seemed like I was seeing GIFs from Jezebel and other late-30s Warner Bros. B&W classics. That was a good diversion because there wouldn't be another reception -- not even garble -- until 0320 when "AY-3" was part of a small hash sandwich.
At 0325, the 333 WLs were dark, and 3 later, there was the start of a short spell of Dispatcher-side Channel 1 garble. The 334 ELs would be at Stop and the 334 1stagger and 335s dark.
The trip up Da Hill to the dark 345s was quiet until 0335 when D-3 241d AY-3 with the 7627 1 east to 1 at CPF-AY. Yard 1 had from the Yard Lead Switch west 1 tank, 4 covered hoppers, and 2 boxes. From a bit west of the easterly FP to the easterly Pratt lot, Yard 2 had. a mix of loaded racks and covered hoppers and then a few CRYO-TRANSes. At 0345 and while stopped at the light by the 345 WLs came a broken D-3 reception of yarding instructions to POAY that included the Barbers going to 11, something about waters and a 10x? pickup, ending with something about 426 being up later. The last confirmed that the X7.8 crossing noise I'd heard at 0125 wasn't an early 427. Dunno if the later-than-usual 426 resulted from imPrecision Scheduled Railroading or if the PAR crew recrewed a tiedown.
The rest of the start of the EB trip was quiet, and the 333 WLs were dark at 0355. 4 later, there would be some more Dispatcher-side garble. Further east, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear and the 330 WLs and ELs dark. The GL WLs, however, were at Stop, a mystery cuzza no receptions, dark FG WLs, and -- at 0407 -- an MT FI-1/2 parking spot. Mebbe relay probs?
Dunno if there was cause/effect, but after refilling my gas tank, the airwaves were likewise refilled, but only with garbles of the Yard Channel persuasion.
At 0421, the EB staggers for Derby were dark, and only occasional garbles presented themselves for the balance of the trip.
Dunno about the other usual contributors...

0255-0450/05-28-2021 started off slow, but The Deity Of Randomness flipped into reward mode down the road. Proof of scanner function would come at 0305 and 0310 with garbles, first from VRS and next from Boston West, things otherwise quiet until 0319 with an FI-2/D-3 exchange, they wanting to go West Side to East and he OKing them on signal indication.
To go all Simon & Garfunkel, the sounds of silence would next be in effect. At 0328, the 333 WLs were dark, the usual displays at the usual places to follow.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and from the easterly FP, Yard 2 had 8 loaded racks and 4 BNSF boxes, Yard 4 having gons -- at least a few of them company -- from Chair City Oil west.
Radio silence would be broken only be some public safety activity, that silence extending until 0354 with a 22K/D-3 exchange. They were stopped at Wachusett, and did he want them to take it further east? The recrew was already on the way, so no. Sure enough, NSs 6953, 4490, and 7710 were stopped on 1, but facing a Clear on the 333 1 WL as the crew awaited the soon-to-arrive recrew. The earlier radio silence had become anything but. At 0356, D-3 had reached out to AY-3 with garble about 22K, and then at 0358, D-3 reached out to FI-3, naught further immediately developing, but in a bit-plus there would be.
At 0413, D-3 asked FI-2 -- yes, two -- if they were calling, and a bit later, the 330.8 WBs showed a Stop for 1 and a Clear for 2, probably for 22K and not for 400. The 330 WLs and ELs were dark, but the GL 2 WL showed an Approach, hinting that 22K would be east 1st.
The FG 2 WL was showing a Clear, but that dropped at 0411, solo and west-facing KCIR 5963 heading east, it being in the FI-1/2 parking spot at 0413, the same time that D-3 reached out to AY-4 and went into garble mode. Just guessing that there mighta been more FI-2 Side-swapping between 0319 and 0411.
There would be a few spurts of garble until the 0419 viewing of the EB staggers for Derby -- Approach for 1 and Clear for 2. As I was jotting down the stagger info, light power KCIR 7620 trundled EB, dropping the the 2 stagger at at 0421 and in the midst of hash involving POAY. No idea what 7620 mighta been unless mebbe AE-01 or AY-5, but naught was ever heard to, from, or about those guys.
At 0427, D-3 told 22K that they would hold back, but Mount Wachusett would hold back any further details, and for the next bit, only occasional garble would exit the scanner.
0444 was when D-3 told FI-3 -- yes, back to them -- to hold wherever there was cuz he might need them ti recrew Q427 depending on how long it took to do the power swap. 0446 was the start of the D-3 side of an exchange with AY-3. They were to tie down their engine and cars on the Thorofare so AYPO could pick them up, making it seem like AY-3 had been doing more than the Milling and also making it seem like inspections were still being done at Waterville.
My fingers are tired, but your eyes probably are, too.

Edited for update-- Dunno if FI-3's crew in the Q427 seats, but X7.8 crossing noise came at 0837.

Edited a 2nd time -- Thanks to Al LaPierre's http://photos.nerail.org/s/?p=263590 I saw that i'd gotten to be little too much a creature of habit and input "KCIR 5963" when I shoulda input "NewBlue 5963."

0255-0455/05-31-2021 was a 2-hour drivethrough carwash, not much being seen and the longer-than-usual time for a minimal-sighting trip cuzza a strong desire not to make BambiBurger, so much easier to do cuzza reduced visibility and rain-slicked roads.
Early proof of scanner function would come from CSX garble, naught company coming until 0318 with ???6's car countdowns, the guess being Q426, more about whom later. An extended period -- for me, at least -- of radio silence would next start. At 0327, the 333 WLs were dark, and the 334 Controlled Siding WL at Stop, with the 334 2 WL joining the 1 stagger and 335s in darkness.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and radioactivity would resume, but only from a number of encroaching public safety transmissions. Yard 4 had some general, and Yards 2 and 1 looked like that what had been on 4 and 2 on 05-28 had gotten moved 1 track each to the north.
Radio silence would get broken by a both-sides-breaking AY-3/D-3 exchange involving being lined and locked normal, Mount Wachusett next literally blocking any further info.
At 0401, the 333 WLs were dark, and further east, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear and the 330 WLs and ELs were dark. The GL WLs were at Stops, but the dark FG WLs + lack of identifiable FI-2 transmissions + an MT FI-1/2 parking spot at 0415 seemed to add up to the GL WL display being either a reset or rain related.
At 0421, the the EB staggers for Derby were dark, and receptions would resume at 0429 with AYPO car countdowns.
Things were next generally quiet until 0441 when D-3 answered Q427, confirming that Q426 with CSXY 3231was east and clear of MP X25. Didn't hear either the Form D number or its fulfillment. D-3 asked for the update and rogered without repetition. I was now north of the Temple Street/Rte. 140 sag, so I held there, hearing Form D G304 to CSXT 889 for MP X25 to Burncoat. D-3 asked for a repletion of the Line 2 read-back , but I didn't hear the time effective. At 0446, D-3 would ask if they were moving right now, rogering that.
Naught else got outta my scanner's speaker during the next 9, so dunno about all the other usual contributors.

On the theme of contributors, let's keep all those who had been in our memories.

0254-0445/06-02-2021 started off with 22K getting the words that it was 15 cars to a stop. 22K would be a frequent and long-term IDable contributor to attributable receptions, so to save the tips of my index fingers and your eyes...
At 0306, D-3 would answer the somebody who was calling, rogering whatever got said, then OKing on signal indication, next serving some hash, and then giving a clear "Roger that." The time would be appropriate for AY-3's runaround.
0329 was when the 333 WLs were dark, the 334 ELs -- both of them, unlike 05-31 -- at Stop, and the 334 1 stagger and 335s dark.
Since a 0324 22K reception, things had been quiet until 0339 and mosta the way up Da Hill when AMTK gave forth garble. The 345s were dark, and just north of the Timpany Boulevard UGB, there was a badly hashed 0344 1-east-to-1-at-CPF-AY 241, again appropriate timing for AY-3. The yard was MT save for 6 rack loads on the easterly end of 4.
The EB leg of the trip would provide more 22K receptions at 0354 and 0356, the 333 WLs being dark at 0358.
Further east, the 330.8 WBs showed a Stop for 1 and a Clear for 2, and hash aplenty was being served up, "22K" and "AYPO" being clear. The 330 WLs and ELs were dar, but the GL WLs were lit, a Medium Approach Medium for the Controlled Siding, showing 400's route was already in.
The FG WLs were dark, and in the depths of the Summer Street Zombie Zone, a breaking CSXT ??? seemed in the middle of a read-back, that confirmed when an equally-breaking gave 0412 as the time effective for Form D G302, asking for time into DCS and confirming that I had not had an auditory hallucination involving the ~0100 sound of far, faraway crossing noise. 0412 was when NewBlue 5968 sat dark, solo, and facing east in the FI-1/2 parking spot, the probable shunt-source for the earlier GL WLs display, crossing the road having been done on signal indication.
Servings of hash would bracket the 0418 observation of the dark EB staggers for Derby, and at 0426, "AYPO, far enough" would be clear, occasional garble next resuming.
At 0437, D-3 would answer Q427, but further clarity disappeared thanks to the Rte. 140 West Boylston/Boylston sag. Curiously and when I started the trip, 22K was heard clearly in the sag. As of the 0540, no 427 crossing noise had been heard.
Things would close out with the D-2 side of a convo with BO-2 that started at 0443. He was showing that the yard -- unspecified -- was clear, pausing, saying "Right," pausing again, and then rogering.
Dunno about the other usuals.

Edited for update: Q427 X7.8 crossing noise 0559.

0250-0445/06-04-2021 was -- as will be seen -- a period in which The Deity Of Randomness waited until the last possible minutes to be bountiful. Yes, there was brief and intermittent Yard Channel hash at the outset, and yes, FI-2 did let D-3 know on Channel 1 at 0314 that they wanted to go West Side to East, further developments being broken, and yes, a minute later there was more D-3 hash that advised AY-3 they could reverse direction from wherever it was they stood, and yes just after that, there was D-2 hash to BODO that probably involved speedo updates, but clarity overall was a scarce commodity.
0321 was when the 333 WLs were dark, and a minute later, the routine of Yard Channel hash -- followed in a few by Dispatcher-side hash -- underscored the routine of Stops for the 334 ELs and darkness for the 334 1 stagger and 335s.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and Yard 2 had E-W 7 loaded racks, 1 LPG tank, 1 bulkhead with either doubled stick-rail or structural steel, and covered hoppers to up around the ambulance company.
0341 and 0348 would offer more Dispatcher-side hash on Channel 1, and 0350 would reveal continued darkness on the 333 WLs. Further east, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear, and the 330 WLs and ELs dark.
The GL WLs had been at Stop, but the FG WLs were dark, and dark, solo and west-facing NewBlue 5968 sat in the FI-1/2 parking spot at 0403. Dunno about the EB staggers for Derby at 0408 cuz there was activity in the RVJ lot and the foliage along Nashua Street is in full blockage.
At 0414, there was more Yard Channel garble, mebbe involving POAY, and at 0420, Boston West had a brief convo with BO-2, 0423 and 0428 providing more Yard Channel hash.
As I was getting ready to get outta my car at 0434, D-3 answered Q427, confirmed that 426 with CSXT 785 was east and clear of MP X25, fulfilled Form D G304 at 0435, and told them to wait 1 sec for a new Form D. At 0437 and twice at 0438, AYPO tried to get D-3, but D-3 would get back to 427 and the CSXT 4539 with Form D G304 for X25 to Burncoat, time effective 0440. The update was asked for and rogered without repetition, followed by a request for a call when into DCS. AYPO? There were doing car countdowns, a 3-point, and a take it ahead, but without a D-3 exchange as of the end of 0445.
Dunno about any of the other expectable presences.

Edited for update: Q427 MP X7.8 crossing noise 0627.
  by jaymac
 
0245-0440/06-07-2021 would be nearly 2 hours in which most of the info of train movements would come from 241s.
The 1st company semiclarity would come at 0303 when D-3 asked AY-3 what they had for an engine, the followup to that being 0309 Yard Channel garble, that followed up by radio silence. At 0316, the 333 WLs were dark, the usual patterns following at the usual intervals.
On the WB way up Da Hil land at 0327, D-3 241d AY-5 with the 7643 from the Single west to 2 at 312, paused, asked AY-5 if they'd copied, and then at 0328 issued the same 241 to AY-3 with the 7643. AMTK and Boston East would also be heard.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and Yard 4 was pretty much FP-FP with -- starting from the east --unwrapped centerbeams, covered and open hoppers, a wrapped centerbeam, a tank, and then loaded racks from the ambulance company west. The easterly end of Yard 2 also had a few MT centerbeams.
The EB trip was quiet until 0340 and the start of extended noise on the Yard Channel. That locked out, the noise jumped to the frequency-adjacent Keolis Worcester line. Restarting the scanner a number of times didn't help for more than a bit, and dunno what the cause was.
At 0347, the 333 WLs were dark, and further east, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear, the 330 WLs and ELs dark, and the GL WLs at Stop.
In the depths of the Summer Street ZombieZone, there was a broken 241 to AY-?, the FG WLs were dark, and at 0401, NewBlue 5968 was dark, solo, and west-facing in the FI-1/2 parking spot.
Post refueling stop and at 0410, D-3 breakingly called out to AY-5 -- yes, five -- saying something about talking to somebody about getting in the clear when AY-5 was headed into the yard, and at 0412, the EB staggers for Derby were dark.
0420 was when D-2 called out to POAY with the 7528 with a 241 for 2 west to 2 at CPF-BY, an explanation for at least some of the Yard Channel quiet, the Yard Channel having been restored. No idea if Q426/7 was similarly delayed, naught heard to, from, or about them..
At 0429, it would again be 241 time, this from D-3 to FI-3 with NS 6964 for 2 west to 2 at CPF-AY.
Quiet would be maintained for the balance of the trip. 22K mighta been in play, but I heard naught to, from, or about them.

0245-0440/06-09-2021 presented no great leap forward in reception clarity, things being quiet to me until 0255 and Boston West's broken 241 to BO-2 for Tufts. Things were only marginally clearer at 0257 when D-3 gave AYPO their yarding instructions that involved where the waters would go and an 8x8 Barbers pickup on Track 11. There was also a hedzup that 426 would be up in an hour or so. To preserve precious suspense, naught further would be heard to, from, or about 426 and/or 427 for the balance of scanner time.
Radio silence next followed. At 0318, the 333 WLs were dark, and at 0319, there was the start of a few spurts of Dispatcher-side hash. D-2? D-3? A C? Dunno, but I do know that the usual other patterns -- Stops for the 334 ELs and darkness for the 334 1 stagger and 335s provided some sense of predictability.
Most all the way WB up Da Hill and at 0328, there was an extended period of Yard Channel hashing -- POAY? -- and later, D-3 said a breaking something to AY-3 about signal indication, probably for their runaround, given the 0420 reception. The 345s were dark, and 4 in the yard was FP-FP occupied with general -- a mix of unplacarded tanks, tented centerbeams, and covered hoppers, then racks to past Royal Steam Heater and 1 CRYO-TRANS, 2 having a mix of more tented centerbeams, NS and Brand X gons, unplacarded tanks, and a box west to Chair City Oil. 2 of the unplacarded tanks were ADMX, so mebbe Polar? Also, the rack count seems lower, so mebbe more Davisvilles via CSXT?
Things EB were quiet -- at least for me -- until 0349 and some D-3 hash followed by some Yard Channel hash. At 0352, the 333 WLs were dark, and further east, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear, and 1 other clear was the "POAY" in a 0400 hash eruption. The 330 WLs and ELs were dark, and the GL WLs were at Stop.
The FG WLs were dark, and a swing by the old Simonds Saw plant showed the "For Lease" sign still in place, so dunno if the UPS move might be on hold and a subject of OCS discussions.
At 0407, NewBlue 5968 was dark, solo, and west-facing in the FI-1/2 parking spot, and 5 later the EB staggers for Derby were dark.
0420 was when D-3 gave AY-3 with the 7643 permission to reverse direction from where they stood and proceed west to CPF-AY. There was more, but Mount Wachusett was now in blockage mode. More hash came at 0426, wither "AY-4" or the end of "POAY, 4."
POAY would provide the last receptions starting with a series of car countdowns at 0437.
Naught was heard to, from, or about AE-01, AY-5, FI-3, POED, EDPO, or 22K.

0245-0435/06-11-2021 would provide more hash than anyone would want, healthier things coming later, as later will be seen. The 1st hash would come at 0249 with Boston West's cancellation of Form D M301 to Foreman? at ?. D-3 would offer a tad more clarity a minute late with a 241 to ED-8 with NS 6964 for 2 ? to 2 at CPF-AY, D-? hash returning at 0306 with answering and then rogering whomever. 0309 would be the start of a protracted but intermittent Yard Channel hashfest, mebbe ED-8 being the originator, but mebbe not.
At 0321, the 333 WLs were dark, the usual conditions applying in the usual sequence.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark, and from Royal Steam Heater west, 4 in the yard had a coupla unplacarded tanks, a box, more tanks, and then a number of full-size covered hoppers, guessing from the aforementioned ED-8.
The intermittent Yard Channel hash continued on the EB leg of the trip, and at 0349, D-? reached out to a Foreman with what seemed to be a Form D. Given later events, D-2 mighta been the issuer. 0349 was also when the 333 WLs were dark.
Further east and among continuing hash dollops, the 330.8 WBs were at Clear and the 330 WLs and ELs dark. The GL WLs were at Stop, and I'm getting suspicious that they've been changed to constant-on, given that the FG WLs would be dark and that NewBlue 5968 would be dark, solo, and west-facing on West Side -- no crossing the road -- at 0403.
0403 was when -- get ready for the change to healthier things -- D-3 called out to the LGT, advising he had a POED coming and would need them to call when in the clear. That would be acknowledged to the 7552, confirming that they were in the clear at the Milling and things were lined and locked normal. At 0404, D-3 would next talk to AY-3, saying he would check with the Chief and get back to them. That would happen at 0406 with a broken something about a recrew, saying that should unload what they could, tie down, and he'd call a cab for them. Guessing that AY-3 had recrewed the LGT since it seemed unlikely that a separate AY-3 and LGT would simultaneously be on the Milling.
At 0409, the EB staggers for Derby were dark, and at 0413, there was D-2 garble to LA-?. D-2 would serve up more hash starting at 0418, 0419 being the cancellation of Form D G20?, mebbe the 1 issued at 0349. "CPF-FR" was clear. Intermittent Yard Channel hash would be heard for the balance of the trip.
FI-3, 22K, EDPO, AE-01, AY-4, AY-5, POAY/AYPO, and Q426/7? Dunno -- Naught clear to, from, or about.

Edited for update: WB -- mebbe Q427 -- crossing noises for X7.8 at 0637 and X6.0 at 0647.
