A home remodel that went two weeks past it's anticipated completion date allowed rail traffic on the N.Y.C.T.L. to come to a complete halt. Frustrated over the slow going of the remodel and the need to get trains rolling prior to April 1st the Terminal Yard yard master put together Train Extra 3007 to clear out some yard space and open up some industrial sidings. Here is a copy of the message sent from Terminal Yard on March 31st .

This diesel was purchased in June 2013 using the contract services of the N.M.D.C.
On the siding we can see a Missouri, Kansas & Quincy (MKQ) 50' plug door boxcar with a load of paper for Berk Enterprises. Modelers will recognize the MKQ as the road of model railroader Gary Hoover. The MKQ car is from Accurail.
