Remarks & Notes 
Empty Georgia Power coal bucket CSX E303-15 (Stilesboro,GA-Evansville,IN/EWVR) is making the running head start up the curve on the main 2 track taking on the south-end of Raccoon Mountain in Wildwood, GA (MP J-143.4 Wildwood). The only plan for this empty train on it's way north is to stop at Dechard, TN to pick up a trio of GE motors that is sitting on the house track, and then continue north for Nashville on this segment of it's journey. Coal trains are starting to just as hot as the intermodal trains on this Subdivision. As part of this "Precision Schedule" lingo a lot of coal trains are becoming a lot longer, and much heavier in tonnage which spark the idea of adding DPU's as either mid-train or on the rear, and with a critical schedule that these coal train are on CSX is trying to come out on top with it's fast turn over rate from getting the coal from the mines to the customers, so they say!
