The MNYRO-30 developed an interesting problem at Cliff. Actually, developed may not be the correct word. When meeting an eastbound coal load, the conductor on the coal train noticed a hazmat violation on the MNYRO. A tank car of Methane was placed next to a gondola full of pipe, where the pipe exceeded the height of the gondola! After several hours of delay, the train switched cars around (using the Cliff siding) and solved the problem. Here, the head end of the train is west of Cliff, performing some switching moves.
