    Yep, it was like dispatchers' dodgeball.  Same is true with getting the empties back.  Woe be unto the one that stuck a flexivan or UPS train!  That diamond required constant welding, at least twice a week.  It was $80,000+ per diamond every time it was changed out, too.  Even busier now, at least on the east-west mains.  Still, I am fascinated with a 1000 Foot laker pivoting in the turning bay.  Always wanted to take that 3-day roundtrip to Hamilton, Ontario but never got to.  Vessel Henry Griffith made that trip a lot...I wonder if it still does?  Even if you got permission from the ships' owners, it was still up to the captain.     Don

  The amazing part about the Sandusky  operation was the method of getting the
  coal from the yard to the pier -- by shoving the cut across (at one time) NYC's
  four-track main line.
