I spoke to the Engineer of P091(19) about 20 minutes ago. He had just gotten off his train at WPB. He told me that when he reported for duty at 10 morning P097(20) was ready to go out (it turned over form last nights 90). Rather than sending out the equipment from 90 as 91 it was held for 97. 91 left out of JAX 10 minutes before 97, and 97 handled all boarding passengers, so 91 was in essence Discharge only. At Benson Junction (between Deland and Sanford) 97 was run around 91 so that CSX could get the candy money for keeping it on time. So for the first time in a while, 97 made station stops before 91.
