Here it is:

Came 7:48AM through Beth Interlocking. The 268(east) and 261 with 30 cars. On their way out east, they were behind train 8008 by about half an hour. Caught the engines running light on the return back through Farmingdale at 10:12AM. They were riding 8015's markers.

Mr. Knife-Switch, piloted, not literally, your Snoopy cartoon explains it all. The Maiden music would of been nice. I wish we could install a 700w home theather system in the engines :wink: .

Mr. Emfinite, nice work as usual. Keep em comming.

Nice picture Knife-switch. That is quite an interesting signal to go along with your name. Watch out with that engineer of yours, he is good at removing any form of signal as you saw first hand. Just remind lethal weapon that wasn't your train that did the deed, but his engine.
