P.C.C.M. 22E

Greetings All,

Part Six of the virtual ops between the N.Y.C.T.L. and the K.P.D. of Ralph V. http://kingsportdivision.blogspot.com/

To:        West Mill
From:    Terminal Yard
Subject: Dispatch of Train LS-1 ( New York to Elkhart)
              Engines: 2228, 1602, 1644
              Caboose: 23045
              Blocks: 2
              Loads / Empties: 21 / 5
              Total Cars: 26

The Terminal Yard switch crew gets right to work breaking down EC-3 and blocking Train LS-1. PC 167872 is loaded with beer for Reynolds Beverage Distributors in Kings Port NY and will be placed in Train LS-1
PC 167872 has been dropped on track 8 so the yard crew can pull track 7 to B&M 110 and put PC 167872 into the Kings Port block
The Kings Port Division block is cut at the B&M 50' boxcar and PC 167872 will be cut in. NYC 80779 headed to Empire Grain in West Mill will be at the front of LS-1 in the Kings Port Division / West Mill Block 
PC 160502 and TPFX 5510 consigned to Gern Industries will be the first cars in the Kings Port / West Mill Block
The yard work is done and he power for LS-1 has coupled on. The all EMD PC-PRR-NYC paint schemes were quite common on the PC's early years. The GP30, F7A-F7A lash up screams Penn Central!

  2. As always, this is a great report! It details it very nicely. Do I spot a new car on the N.Y.V.T.L.? Looking forward to the next installment..

    2. Thank you 1:1 Sir Neal! A sharp eye you have. Newly added boxcar, B&M #110, is an Evans 5100 series RBL from Scale Trains Kit Classics. Build date is 7/70 so these would be brand new in the PC era we are using.
