Remarks & Notes 
After a series of heavy rains, the Buffalo & Pittsburgh suffered some flooding along its former Pennsylvania Railroad low-grade line near DuBois, Pennsylvania, stranding a coal train at the Lady Jane prep plant and isolating a large string of cars bound for Falls Creek yard. With frac sand being a hot commodity on the B&P, the decision was made to run everything waiting at Driftwood up to Salamanca on the Western New York & Pennsylvania to interchange with B&P there. After battling the treacherous grades of Keating Summit, the four big MLWs (a C630M and three M636s) cool their heels and drift downgrade with 110 cars through Port Allegany, Pennsylvania.
