I stumbled onto a LS move on the south side of downtown WB...

At 1:20 today (Monday 2-12) I was driving south on Penna Blvd just past the old Murray's Inn complex. Sitting on the tracks was an interesting consist of LS 50 (the black SW7) on the downtown side of the train, a couple of flats and the Air Products caboose (on the Buttonwood end). The unit was running but there was nobody occupying the cab.

Around 1:45 the LS 1751 (GP9) came from Hanover with two CN flats. They coupled onto the caboose, and the entire parade slowly proceeded south to Havover. The 2 CN flats were in the lead, followed by the 1751 (SHF), the Air Products caboose, the Air Products flaot and the #30 bringing up the rear.

At junk food corner (Pizza Hut, KFC) the 1751 uncoupled from the caboose and proceeded onto the right side of the Pizza Hut switch, pushing its two flats. The # 30 then pushed the caboose and its flats onto the left track.
