Switchlist in use…


Shown above is the first use of my new switchlist, used last weekend. Twelve cars were on the day turn job, with engine 5628 doing the honors, as seen in the upper left corner.

The list is pretty explanatory, with car number, initials, kind of car, from and to location, and time placed. Any cars respotted are noted on the bottom, along with any delay time, elapsed or total time, crew size, conductor initials, etc. From and to locations are of course abbreviated, such as “dick” for Dickinson yard, “kcfs” stands for Kanawha County Feed and Seed, etc.
