Taking the Skykomish Siding

BNSF 7631 took the Main back at Goldbar after the Z ran around him,but now he's taking the siding at Skykomish to wait for the westbound EMPIRE BUILDER to pass.Things didn't go according to plan tho,a westbounder ahead of the BUILDER lost an
engine on the single main east of the Cascade Tunnel so the "EMPIRE BUILDER" was held up near Merritt.The Wenatchee Dog Catch van showed up with the relief crew and the Dispatcher send the train up to Scenic since there was not going to be any westbounders for a bit.
