[TN-Bird] Re: Rankin This Afternoon

For what it is worth, this afternoon must have been unusual.  James called at 
1.05 pm and I called 30 minutes later. The number on the post for the location 
was legible. Unfortunately, the operator at the 800 number said there was a 
problem and no time estimate to get the train moving.
