Received a short visit from "Blazeman" (Larry) and his friends Bob & Alden. We ran the return trip of WY80, the Tank Sweeper (collects cars from the Sunoco and Texaco refineries) from Paulsboro to Camden and WY841, the Camden to Penns Grove local.
WY80 only had to collect 3 cars from the South Woodbury yard (left after the Texaco pickups by WY79). So it returned home quickly.
Meanwhile WY841 was launched from Camden. It started with only 6 cars. (It will have 14 cars by the time it reaches Penns Grove and Deepwater.) Bob and Alden did the drops and pick ups in Westville and North Woodbury but had to leave before completing the South Woodbury yard work. So I completed that.
I am now left to break down 2 trains, run WY840 from Penns Grove back to Camden and do the Camden yard switching. At this rate it will be about 6 weeks to finish the first day's schedule!
