An oil company (or companies?) in the Craig, CO area have need sand for fracking lately. A lot of it! The MNYPHX had a bunch of loaded cars a week ago or so. And then, overnight, a 113-car, 12,400-ton unit sand train arrived at North Yard. It was rumored the train would go west with a 3x4x2 power configuration. However, the powers that be decided to split the train in two. Here, the first half (51 cars) are headed west at Leyden in a 3x(0)x2 configuration. The rest of the hoppers will go west on the MNYPHX.
