An angry crew and the Dispatcher

An angry crew and the Dispatcher

UP 6033 has a WB tucked in the clear while holding for 2 EB. Notice that it has cut off and is using the house track to "fit" in the siding. The train was too long for the siding. The train was previously held at Sloat, but the 'spatcher ordered them to move to the next sid and split the train. The crew was ticked off as they wanted to wait at Sloat. My dad asked the crew for a short cabride and they properly told him to go to hell.
Re-numbered 2188

6033 is now AC44CWCTE
