EXTRA BOARD:

  • Switch #17 - Salida NG Turntable, Hankscraft motor gears shot.
  • Cleora Switch from Mainline to Main #1: NG needs guide rail to protect point.
  • Staging Deck Reverse Loop: FT A-B-B-A too much amperage draw, need to reset.
  • Crested Butte switch nearest to tunnel exit at Coke Ovens - inoperative.
  • Recommendation - Hammerheads preferred over simple throttles (KentS).
  • Zephyr cars with derailments in helix.
  • Baldwin trains were in wrong order in Baldwin staging.
  • Salida Switch #25 had some loose connections on the tortoise.
  • Lesson Learned from Barrel: Extract more NG empty gons by using 1st Main, divert trains on siding if necessary.
  • Monitor in Dispatch was useful observing progress.
