Engines 2272 and 2176 head back to Centennial Yard by Tower 55 Engines 2272 and 2176 head back to Centennial Yard by Tower 55

East Yard and Ginnie Yard east of Tower 55 serve as a sort of safety valve for Centennial Yard. When things begin to get crowded at Centennial Yard, lower priority traffic will be moved to one of these yards for temporary storage. When things calm down at Centennial Yard and space is available, then these cars will be moved there for classification. Engines 2272 and 2176 are switching at the East Yard on the north side of the T&P main east of Tower 55 on September 12, 1986. After getting all of the cars together they head to Centennial Yard.
