Shuffling coal train power: The inbound crew of this loaded Sheboygan coal train is readying the power for the continuation to Sheboygan. First, the head of the train stopped short of BJ South. Both lead units were cut off and backed down to the rear end of the train on the adjacent track. Next, the DPU, the 6457, cut away from the rear end of the train, crossed over at Capitol, and backed down to the head end power. Here, the engineer is ensuring everything is set up right, as a remote job passes on a yard track. In a moment, the crew will take all three units north, tie on to the head of the train, and park it at Fonda siding. A Butler LPA81 crew will take it all to Sheboygan tomorrow afternoon.
