The 1522 started the 2001 season in style with a breakin run on the former Frisco Cuba sub. After a positioning move from the Museum to Lindenwood Yard on Saturday, the 28th, the 1522 headed Southwest on the 29th with the usual crew cars and 11 freight cars for extra weight and braking. A servicing stop advertised in the town of Pacific drew a large crowd. From there, the 1522 ran non-stop to Newburg where it was turned on the wye at Bundy Junction. After blasting back up Rolla Hill, we had to wait for several trains and a new pilot crew. The delays brought us back to St. Louis well after dark.
