D063-20 pulls out of the west yard at West Keyser. At this point there was considerable radio traffic if the motive power would be sufficient for the mountain. The bosses decided to try it.... A Slug Set and a derated SD50 - 20 March 2015

Plan A .........The Train Master decides to let Q317-18 run past the now stalled Rail-Train. Once the Q317 is out of the way, the Rail-Train will back down to Piedmont and the WVC Junction switcher will bring one of the 4-axle junction units to D063 - 20 March 2015

Scrap Plan A.... Q317 reported they are down to a 2-3 mph crawl and may stall themselves...... 317 had 4 units but the last two are off line - 20 March 2015

Plan B.... the 317 is given permission to put the Dash 8 on-line as a helper but just in case, both WVC Junction Switchers are held at Piedmont in case one of them is needed to shove the 317 over the top..... The Conductor from the Rail-Train has to walk to the rear of his train to protect the rear while they back to Piedmont - 20 March 2015

Sorry... a little out of order. Both of the WVC Junction switchers wait on the Interchange Track at Piedmont, WV while in the background the Rail-Train shoves back to West Keyser - 20 March 2015

Thanks...  
 
I could tell from the scanner traffic that the 1st attempt on the mountain may not go well.  
 
The Engineer on the Rail-Train had serious doubt especially when he was told he had to stop at Bloomington to pick up the Unloading Crew. He wasn't sure he could re-start on the grade but he was over-rode and they took off with just the slug set and a SD50-2.  
 
At that point I took a vacation day from work to follow the action......

Yesterday, CSX and myself exchanged paperwork and I became the proud owner of a Former B&O CPL... Unfortunately I don't have a clue where this light once stood nor was I allowed to purchase a mast / tower.
