    Default "Mojave Sub Despatcher..?"

    …"You just stuffed us!"

    Who would have known my incoming manifest for local traffic out of Mojave wouldn't erm, quite fit on Track 3 in the yard or for that matter any track!

    Well off to seed some sidings at Bakersfield, then guess I will have to rapidly split this jumbo feeder train in half...

    Didn't you check the sizes before-hand?

    Track #3 is 5,565 feet in length.
    How long is your train?

    It was around 8000 feet - real jumbo and no I didn't check. In fact it wouldn't have fitted any of the tracks at Mojave.
    Obviously Freight Commercial Department overruled the Operations Department...
    Sorted now but there's not much room left in the yard for anything else!

    Must have been an interesting inter-departmental meeting after that stuff-up, Vern!
