John Stewart:

It has been a long time. For instance I said the ore moved on 154. Actually, by that time the Mobile trains were renumbered 183-184. Yes, 184 was filled out to the tonnage limit with ore. I don't believe it all came back to us from loading at one time. Ore was accumulated in the yard and moved on 184 as tonnage permitted. The move in Big Reds probably coincided with the wrecked Red Rollers.
