While B772-27 is dropping their outbound cars, Q317-27 arrives in West Keyser to drop a string of inbound cars for the WVC Junction.  
 
317 will soon become a player in the musical locomotives and the Covered hopper in the far left of the photo will make at least 10 moves without leaving the west yard #2 track - 27 May 2015

B772-27 takes their GP40-2 into the East Yard while Q317 does their work.

B772-27 has the Covered Hopper coupled up and is sitting in the west yard waiting for clearance to come out of the yard and go east to the Industrial park....... but a Track Inspector has #2 main tied up and with the clock ticking the Train Master decides to have the B770 crew come down from the WVC Junction yard to pick up the inbound cars.
 
So, with no other power available at the Junction, B772 drops the covered hopper and puts the GP40-2 on the head end of the freight and garbs the #3166 from the Mt. Storm Helpers for their work in the park.
 
Now with the #3166 and the Covered Hopper, the B772 crew tries to leave the west yard for a second time.... - 27 May 2015

Not so fast.... Dispatcher reports that he has a problem on the mountain and needs the west facing unit that B772 has. Seems Q317 needs a new leader and a crew has been called to take the 3166 up the mountain to meet Q317....
 
So the B772 crew drops the covered hopper for a second time and reaches back in to grab the east facing Mt. Storm Helper for the park work - 27 May 2015

Now using the #3109, B772-27 has coupled to the Covered Hopper for a third time and attempts to head east to work the Keyser Industrial Park - 27 May 2015
