Remarks & Notes 
In the first time in 3 years Disco, IL sees some rail action. Peoria and Western is running two crews to pull about 300 cars out of storage, grab a dozen hoppers, and shove the 300 back. The second cut of coal hoppers is led by F9A #1752 and holds the main at Disco for the GP20's to run light into the siding for the F's to proceed. Population of Disco, IL: 20? 30? Maybe less, a black lab and a beautiful beagle... Then, four railfans.
