P&W WOGR waits patiently at S Gardner
On Friday the 13th of April, the P&W switcher arrived S Gardner at around 1pm with 3 freight and 23 empty auto racks, a consist too long to fit on a single track at PAS' Gardner yard. Unfortunately for the P&W crew, a crew-less ED-9 was parked on track 2 blocking the west end of the yard meaning P&W could not perform its doubling maneuver. So WOGR cooled its heels adjacent to the mill pond in S Gardner for an hour or so until a re-crew for ED-9 from Lawrence showed up to grab 3 yard tracks and head west with 60+ cars. And in case you were wondering where the DA hairstyle got its name...
