Today we’ll follow a shorter Spring Street turn from Dickinson yard up to Spring Street yard and back again. The previous day’s turn ran out of hours of service, so they had to leave their return cars up in Spring Street. Today the crew will pick those up and return these to Dickinson yard.
Above are photos of the turn inside Dickinson yard. This morning they’re putting their own train together, as the Dickinson yard job was working on switching out the local industries.
The photo above at bottom right shows the turns departure from Spring Street. The turn had brought cars up for the Nitro turn, and were taking cars the Nitro turn dropped off back to Dickinson. Basically, the turns swap cars here. Below are some of the cars in the consist headed back to Dickinson:
