Conrail #1953 leads local train FY-14 on Track #4

     Here is Local Train FY-14 with Conrail B23-7 #1953 on the lead on Track #4 at 2:04pm. This train serves several industries in the area near Frontier Yard and runs nearly every day. Power is usually a B23-7 but in some cases, there has been B36-7's or SW1500's for power. Also, since this is a local train, it usually has a caboose.
