Things have changed a good bit with the Sunrail construction, and operations have not been nearly as predictable as in times past. Joey, was the "small yard" CSX's Taft Yard just south of Orlando International Airport, or out on the Florida Central line along US 441 on the west side of downtown Orlando?

If it's the latter, that's FCEN's Fairvilla Yard, which is where they do switching before going to Taft, as well as any marshalling of cars to go into the Silver Star branch, which serves several industries. This is a very likely location to find them working during daylight hours.

The First Orlando job was switched to nights for a bit, but I don't think that worked out. I'll see if I can give Kevin a nudge to provide us an update.
