0210-0405/05-29-2023 started off with brief Dispatcher-side hash, followed in 8 by CSX Boston Sub hash. At 0230, D-1 called M427 with CSXT 8872, who answered. That was a surprise cuz I was by then outta range of any Worcester-area receptions from power.
D-1 advised he was just checking in, further receptions. Mount Wachusett made its presence oibvious by hashing the next couple, but D-1 cleared up while repeating the "52 MTs" portion of the update. There was a broken discussion of hazmats, and Mount Wachusett again became obstructionist.
At 0241, the 333 WLs were dark, likewise for the 334s and 335s. A bit further WB and at 0248, D-1 would start Form D G102 for MP WOR1 to Burncoat, time effective 0250. There would be more, but with more Mount Wachusett Effect.
Up Da Hill, the 345s were dark. 2 in the yard had mixed general -- a coupla boxes, covered hoppers including a shortie, an unplacarded tank and mebbe a corrosive tank further W -- that ran from the E FP to mebbe the ambulance company. The visibles on 4 were covered hoppers.
EB and at 0305, there was Boston East hash, and 2 later D-3 answered FI-2, rogered what they said and rogered what they next said. The 333 WLs were dark at 0312, the EB staggers for 330 at Approach.
Post refueling stop, all else was dark up to and including the EB staggers for Derby at 0336, 3 covered hoppers on the RVJ stub.
At 0332 what would be some FI-2 car countdowns had started getting received, guessing mebbe Derby. The FI-1/2 parking spot had been MT at 0330, the W end of East Side having double-stack trashes.
At 0343 D-probably1 asked somebody if they were gonna be able to make down to ???, Mount Wachusett again in the way.
0344 was when D-2 answered NA-2, naught further getting to me.
0353 was the start of a number of D-1 calls to M427. I could occasionally hear garble from M427, so guessing they mighta been Clinton or E. D-1's last attempt heard by me was at 0355, and 427's last attempt heard by me was at 0357.
CSXT: Again I trust more reliable comms is an item on the KittyCat to-do list.
I gave it until 0405 in my driveway to hear any further developments but none got to me. As of posting at 0505 , no XNG noise for Temple Street got to me, either.
Let's give it up for all of those who gave far more than any of us ever did.
