A very clean 6512 is assisted by an F9B, also quite clean, as they bring train 73 and 11 cars westward from Chatham. Wanting to get some elevation, I waited until he was in view, and then climbed to the upper perch of the eastward Absolute signal. Only one half of the old motor car pulloff is now in existence ( opposite the first coach) having been removed when the westward track was refurbished with ties in 1984. This equipment will turn at Windsor and cycle east as train 78 later in the day.
