It appears that the H70 is back to it's previous anemic consist. Is it still running daily or has it gone back to five day a week operation?

It’s running Sun-Thurs. H88 runs Friday afternoons. Nothing regular on Saturdays, but H80 will do it’s work once or twice per month.

why are the trains so short? Did they lose the grain mill customer?

I thought they were handling a lot of frac sand for transloading somewhere. Bay State Milling is still active as far as I know.

Another question: what are H80 and H88 normal duties?

Bay State still get cars. I just don’t catch it when they bring the loads up often.

No frac sand that I know of.

H80 normally works overnight at Harrison and the Kingsland Wye. H88 takes over the work for various trains on their days off. Friday’s they cover H70, There’s a day or two they cover H80, and H81, as well as a Croxton yard switcher.

Okay, thanks for the info - much appreciated. Since we are on the subject (off subject)...the H88 crew seems to be a relief job. What does the H81 generally do? Doesn't seem to be enough work around Harrison for a five day a week job-just Bunge Company, which is a good customer on the Kingsland wye (tank cars) and the occasional car brought down by the Morristown and Erie. Thanks again for your input - greatly appreciated by several fans on this site.
