Waiting
Title:  Waiting
Description:  I went out this morning hoping to catch P59 switching sand hoppers (something I dont know if they still do or not). Instead this is what I got. the train (two geeps, a boxcar and two tankers) was sitting at Jackson Paper. Shortly there after the locos pulled forward across Chipper Curve road and stopped here. The Conductor and Brake(Wo)man moved to the high hood and the engineer disembarked, crossed Main Street and walked on towards downtown. Where he went, I have no idea.

NS P59 crossing Skyland Dr.
Title:  NS P59 crossing Skyland Dr.
Description:  I passed this crossing last night and said as I have said many times before "I don't understand why there isn't any active protection here". I arrived in Sylva a bit early to catch P59 switching so I headed out here to intercept it. I found the train and these newly placed crossing arms-to-be.
