Word has it that 4503 is Kangaroo Edward, and therefore probably destined for Sims'; if that is the case, hopefully after any reusable parts are removed for sister locos. There's a couple more running out there besides 4520, isn't there? Confused

In the last pic, you can see a siding that is dead ended. This is the siding where the 48, 45 & X are.

In the last week, the stop has been removed, and the siding extended to merge into another.

It also looks like similar may happen to the siding where the other two Xs are.
