New Mystery @ the Statesmen St.Yard
New from the AKDN RR ... Opelousas.
Mark / High trestle expert and radio man reported:
This is what hauled in from Livonia: a GMTX blue engine, a lumber car, a few tankers and a bunch of hopper cars.
Me: Over the last few days, Mark has been stalking 550. During one episode the train seemed to disappear into another dimension. The crew reported that it was on a foggy siding with virtually no visibility. Opelousas doesn't have a siding that would hold a 22 car train. It was at none of the well known branches. I do believe that something is going on here that we are not prepared to face. Stay tuned.
I was especially interested in the lumber car, shown above.
I'll try to keep an eye on it.
We have a few lumber places in town,two of them could drive their forklifts to the spurs by Louana Oil.
BTW, 2 huge thingamabobs came by rail along Railroad Ave. and a huge H. Brown crane is trying to load them on trucks. Two state police cruisers were waiting to escort, sorry no pics.
Me: No pics? My freebie phone takes pictures.
So, that's the most action to happen in Opelousas since the Debre' Henderson Superbowl Parade, and you got no shots?
Mark, we need to talk.
It seems Mark did have a picture. I can understand why he fled w/o a picture.
More later as this all unfolds or vanishes.
