Looks like a train this afternoon delivered to H&B, but did not pick-up empties at Dairymen's. Does anyone know if it continued up to SS to overnight?

Oops (again).  Could have sworn I typed Willowbrook.

No cars at Standard Structure. The last couple weeks, it seems they like to work later in the week. Last week, they did the training in Santa Rosa Monday. Yet then Wed and Thur they ran to Petaluma. This week, Wed and now Thursday. See what happens tomorrow.

Well, at least tomorrow the Red Rocket should start the day at Fort Shellville.  Then the unknown becomes whether it will stay locked up or venture forth.  If we all keep posting sightings, or lack thereof, maybe we'll eventually get some feel for things.  Although the fundamental and probably unsolvable unknown is the Cal Northern delivery of cars at the interchange.  Oh for the good old days when some of us still worked for SP and had access to billing and movement info.

Latest.  Don't know where 2009 came from (it is stealth :-), departed SB across swingbridge at 3:25 with 4 empties from Dairymen's.  That leaves the 4 cars at H&B.  Derail is down at Dairymen's so nothing hiding there.

This morning I made another trip to Petaluma and got skunked again.  So far I'm 1 for 4.  Oh well.  Since they left two empties at Dairymen's I wonder if the Red Rocket went north or back to Fort Shellville.  I might have been too early for them, but had to get home to help my better half.  Are there any empties at SS for them to pickup?  Guess I'll try again tomorrow.

Update.  Still no video evidence from yesterday, but in Petaluma there are 4 cars at Dairymen's and 4 at H&B.  There had been 3 and if you add the 5 mentioned yesterday, that's it folks (none went to SS).  Looks like the locos must be at Shellville? And the next train will be when? Sorry about the false alarm re. SS.

Waiting to see Kevin Cunningham's video to see the make-up of yeterday's train.  There was a posting yesterday that there were 5 cars.  I believe at least 3 (probably 4) are sitting at H&B today.  Since there are 2 empties at Dairymen's that have been there for days, the only other customer is SS. The usual is for the engine to stay at SS until the car (if there is one) is unloaded.  If that is what's happening then there should be a SB train this afternoon that will pick-up the above empties and return to Shellville. Anyone up Windson way know if this is the case?

Were there loads to take north or are there empties at SS to pick up?
