Getting a report that NS is running through the Jamestown area today.  Can anyone confirm.

They must have been lost!  LOL

That's my guess.  From what they said they were there and used the yard a few times over the past couple weeks.  Correct me if I'm wrong but NS hasn't run the line since the coal trains and/or Portageville Detours.  The closest they come is Meadville right?

They did a Hornell Meadville run through a few years back. WNYP crews on NS Power.
 
Was this to pull storage cars? About a year back the Meadville crew took in a big train of storage cars from NS and used the NS power.

FWIW, crude oil carloads are up as fuel prices keep inching up. So, if there are/were unit train length strings of cars in storage, it would make sense that now would be the time to fetch them.
 
Tangentially related note: WNYP is storing LNP/LPG (?) cars on the Columbus siding, which is far from full.
