The midnight Bowater job is tied down in "East Yard" at the Abitibi-Bowater paper mill. A late night servicing the paper and kraft sheds plus perhaps some congestion in Westfort has led the midnight job to tie down at the mill and taxi back to the Westfort shack to tie up. Days will have their hands full as they will have to run in midnights pull to the yard before beginning to deal with their daily chores of switching the paper shed, Erco Worldwide (chemical plant) and the Kraft shed. Power was the familiar GP9u combo 1571-1629.
