SP train switching at McNeil, AR

The reverser on engine 8883 is not working so engine 7620 is doing all of the work. However, as the car count builds up it soon becomes apparent the the 7620 cannot handle it all alone. A crewmember has to put engine 8883 online and manually shift the reverser during some of the switching moves.

The L&NW has put its train together but can't back up to the other leg of the wye and go south because Extra 7620 is at the east end of the siding waiting for a meet. Finally the hottest train on the Cotton Belt comes by, the Blue Streak Merchandise. The train symbol is BSMFF running as Extra 9250 West. Disk 97

Once the BSMFF was by and the other train left the siding, the L&NW train was free to back up to access the other leg of the wye. On the rear of the train was L&NW caboose 216. Disk 109
