Caboose got trapped after it was used as a shoving platform for the first loaded train after the first levee break. Second levee break has not been repaired yet, as well as some more in the Schellville area. Hwy 121 at the depot was repaired before any of the storms came through. However Hwy 37 is in need of emergency repairs. Everything that could go wrong is going wrong this month.

1501 has been pulling empties in Petaluma while trapped there as well as spotting any loads that were stockpiled beforehand. There are about 35 empties along the SMRT line.

It appears that 1501 while stuck on the west end, has been marshaling rolling stock (assumed empty) from up the line.  There are approximately 20 empty hoppers sitting at Burdell (no loco) when I drove by today.  

Does anyone know if the Brazos line is open once again?

In the past NWP Co has used it as a MoW car.   I'm surprised it was on the west side of the levy break before the flood as NWP president Doug Bosco said last month at the NCRAA mtg that they were hoping to repair the hway 12 crossing this month.  

He said that before the first atmospheric river though.
