Something not seen in the modern railroading era, that being a physical train order rolling handoff, occurred on the evening of April 11th. CNs former EJ&E “JB” Tower in West Chicago, IL, is one of the last manned towers left in the country, and an action seldom documented at these towers, is the physical train order rolling handoff, deemed “hooping”. Its a bit tough to see, but there's a pole sticking out of the tower, with a rolled paper (train orders), for the crew to grab while rolling by. The introduction of computers to document this information removed the usefulness of rolling handoffs, but with the computers in CSXT 8823 shutting down a few hours prior, a once in a lifetime opportunity presented itself. Not to mention the classic motor leading this X342.
