Default B&P Up the Buffalo Line

This past Saturday I chased the Buffalo and Pittsburgh Railroad's Salamanca-Buffalo turn in Western New york...

Generally SIBF goes north at day break and returns south around noon before tying up in Salamanca. This Saturday, they ran a heavy extra that was on duty in Salamanca around lunch time. It took him about 3 hours to get to Machias with the 3330-3301, and 2 orange SD45s, 462 leading south. We chased him as far as North Wales from Machias where he got a bad signal. It was after 6 by the time he made it to Gravity.

We could have gotten him at least twice between Yorkshire and Wales, but we didn't realize he had to get talked by until he actually pulled up to the signal and called the dispatcher. Oh well.
