Remarks & Notes 
Center Beam Got "Tweaked" - Congratulations are in order on a job well done for the Pacific Imperial Railroad's first "Interchange Job" at U.S. Gypsum in Plaster City California. The adventure started without much fanfare in, or around the third week of March 2016, when the PIR gloriously, albeit unexpectedly, achieved an economic mile stone in their ongoing rehabilitation of the Desert Line with the interchange of a center beam car with the Union Pacific Railroad at the U.S. Gypsum facility in Plaster City California. Word has it, that in addition to the interchange operation, the PIR subsequently transferred their extensive road power holdings (currently consisting of three former Idaho Northern and Pacific GP-40-2's) from Plaster City, out to the newly established (according to their current business plan) intermodal yard at Coyote Wells. Consequently, the current PIR management team in addition to achieving the aforementioned significant and noteworthy mile stone, added a slightly used TTX center beam car to their collection of moribund rolling stock as a direct result of the interchange (an unnamed witness described it as more of a "capture"). It appears the future is bright for the PIR and it is expected that management will have the company up and running momentarily. "We expect great things at any moment from those guys at the PIR" said Sir Toppom Hat of the Sodor Rail Syndicate.
