The waiting game has just begun for D749. Four eastbounds and two westbounds will pass before 749 can get out of McKees Rocks.
D749's conductor protects the Nichol Ave. crossing as 6142 begins to work McKees Rocks Forgings.
6142 spots a cut of gons at one of the plants in McKees Rocks. The part of town between the CSX tracks and the Ohio River still provides CSX and the P&OC with many carloads of freight.
