This week on the Hitop:

This week on the Hitop found us following the Nitro turn coming up to Spring Street and swapping trains with the Spring Street turn out of Dickinson. We followed the Nitro turn after switching out Paxton Salvage, Allied Chemical, and Holsum Baking. Photos below of this action:

In the meantime, the Spring Street turn with engine 7394 came up from Dickinson with tank cars for both Allied and Holsum. Here below are photos of him in Spring Street working:
