Tonight Rob Robbins, the owner of the Marshall and East Texas Railroad (M&ET) took a turn at dispatching the Sue Line, with some very good results.

Tonight also saw some foreign power on the Sue Line-

Pennsylvania Railroad #4301, a steam locomotive  was first spotted heading north out of Sue City.

Here we see the Pennsylvania 4301 locomotive and tender in Pinecrest.
