Heard the LB talking to someone and made a comment, "Well, we'll try again tomorrow".  Then proceeded to talk about having signals "down" between Seymour & Lawrenceburg.  I'm assumimg down as in functional not physically.  Not sure what's up with all that.

There were new signals that were cut in at Seymour for that connection track, maybe something for that?

I think he said there were like 7 signals between the two points, not just in one spot.

Storms yesterday and today dropped trees in SE Indiana. Had 2 good sized ones down across CIND yesterday. Indiana Sub still has limited aerial code line - likely some of that came down.

The local was in Mitchell yesterday, switching out cars for Lehigh Cement.  He also had a centerbeam flat car at the rear of the consist and several gondolas on the head end (likely for Koppers?).  Some of the gondolas looked like MoW cars, as they were solid yellow.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any reporting marks as I was passing through, but I believe the single locomotive may have been CSX 6539 (I didn't make a firm note of the number ::)).
Cheers, Al

J-780 was at Mitchell on Friday April 5th. They may have wandered over on Thursday because the engines, 2374 & 6974, were uncoupled from the cars and tied up at the depot. Two empty centerbeams and three gondolas were east of 3rd street on the main. The engines picked up three loaded gondolas from Koppers, coupled into the emptys and set out the three empty gondolas in Koppers. Then they shoved out of town headed for North Vernon with the conductor riding the lead centerbeam (at least when they went out of my sight). I can't imagine him riding on a car for 50 miles. Anyone know where they picked up the centerbeams?

Just heard the DS give track to someone(train?) in the east direction from the connection track to the Butlerville siding.

I saw a small tie gathering machine just west of Seymour this morning. Looks like they are picking up ties that were laid out years ago but never installed. They are stacking them at grade crossings for pick up.
