They will run it, until it starts pumping. Too much labor involved.
Intermittent track circuit down, one crossing in high signal, and another with sporadic RX changes. Island stayed up despite the break clearly being in the island. Shunt break T21 hand-operated switch approximately 80 yards away.

I looked for 4 hours yesterday but all the circuits and crossings had cleared up (as the day warmed up I assume).

Couple dudes came out after being called last night and chased their own tails.

Found it this morning when the crossings dropped again.

Track guys are here to save the day now.

From ‘74…
Groucho Marx suffered from severe insomnia. When he couldn’t sleep, he would call his neighbor, Alice Cooper, and ask him to come over and join him. Alice would bring over a six-pack of beer and Groucho and he would drink beer and watch old movies on TV until Groucho nodded off.

Still is....somewhat apparently. Callaway has a Corvette AeroWagen package for the C7 coupe.

Did they replace the rail or thermite weld it? You work for the railroad?
Edit: I see that's all seamless rail.

They replaced it and welded it I believe. If they didn’t weld it, we just shoot a bond around the joint until
they do weld it.

We don’t have any stick rail on the mainline I work on, just the sidings which for the most part aren’t signaled.

Other places do though. Screw that.
