Dave Parks' Cumberland West: MY Tower

Tonight my job was being the MY tower operator, writing clearances, transcribing orders from dispatch, and navigating trains through the maze of tracks between Knobmount Yard, Hagerstown Staging, Ridgeley Yard and Cumberland station on the Western Maryland.

A slightly stressful, but very enjoyable way to spend the evening. Now that I operated with TT&TO at La Mesa, I felt much more confident doing this job and knowing what is expected. Keeping up with the dispatcher dictating their orders over the phone was a challenge, but I mostly managed.
