I, being joined by Rudy, Paul, Mike, and Tim, headed up to Jacksonville on a choice Saturday for some trainwatching. The weather was partly a washout but it was still a good day to make do as I probably left with the most EMD on CSX in a single day. As promised I also fulfilled my only real expectation that day, a Norfolk Southern train, by way of three. This package is also a hybrid as far as narration goes as really there isn't much to narrate; most of these trains have been seen before.

Correction: Per Nick M. the interlocking is not controlled by dispatch or any railroad but is more like an intersection with ground sensors. Since 229 triggered it first, it got the green first, and it's not because of priority.
