And the race is on! An NYC westbound led by FA2 1068 (with an FB2 and an FB1) has a slight advantage in horsepower (4700) versus the trio of F7As on the Wabash (4500), and through the Canfield interlocking (60 mph for NYC freights on the Canada Division versus 50 mph on the Cayuga sub); however, track speed for freights is 60 on both lines.

They had better sort it out before they get to the Yarmouth diamond 81 miles to the west (where the Cayuga sub crossed the CASO just east of St. Thomas)!

    I know I always wanted such an angle, came close 2 or 3 times but – close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades !
