The guys had a rough morning which started with the newly rebuilt 1201 developing a debilitating electrical short right out of the barn at the diamond. It took a while to get it moved out of the way and back to the roundhouse. The 900's out of service, waiting on a governor so they took the 1202 out and put onto the lumber train. The 1202 doesn't have dynamics, so after they got to mill 5 dispatcher left with the 1200 to assist the fully loaded return trip. It was around 11:30 AM when they got back to Mill 3 a little over two hours behind. I had hoped to hop a log train today, but it wouldn't have been until three or so for another departure. Weather was crappy anyway. So after I snapped a few frames from the DS shack I decided to leave instead.
