Remarks & Notes 
With some storm light illuminating the dark clouds in the background, the WNYP storage move as arrived at Casino Siding in Salamanca, New York with a train of coal hoppers for storage. Here, the crew had to make an unusual move in order to place the cars in storage as the east end of the siding has been cut from the main line. The leading M636's were cut away and put on the siding, leaving the two C430's to drag the entire train east past the switch. Once the end of the train was clear, the pair of M636's pulled back on to the main and tied on the rear of the train. The C430's were cut away from the east end the train was pulled west back over the switch. From here, the train could then be shoved into the siding and tied down. The four locomotives then returned light power back to Olean.
