    It's a 52xx. It would look similar to a 28xx or 2884 Class.

    I've found that a compressed picture does work, so here is the tamper today: [ATTACH] It did all of P2, down to the siding stop blocks. Tomorrow the regulator will follow up, then there will be more ballast drops to fill voids that arose from...
