Thursday pm, 643 and 630 w/b through Lakewood with 137 cars. The sound was phenomenal! I hope this is a trend to longer trains.

30 cars were bound for Meadeville, the others all heading into storage.  
 
Maybe the big 6 axles made it down to Meadeville. They would likely only stay till the next Falconer hand off next week.

That should put a nice shine on the rail. I assume the cars would be stored in the Meadville yard, yes?

My first thought upon reading OP was storage. Something big has to (industrially) happen in the area to generate a train of that size but storage none the less puts $ in WNY&P's wallet
