There was an interesting light engine move in Durand last night. An engine in the yard wanted to turn around, so the dispatcher sent him down the Port Huron Wye. The plan was to use the crossover east of the station to get him from Main 1 to Main 2, and then down the High Wye, then straight back to the yard. For whatever reason, the crossover wouldn't work properly. So the engine went west on Main 1 to the crossover west of the station. He then used that crossover, went down the Chicago Wye, then up the High Wye to Main 2, then west on Main 2 to the previously used crossover, then east on Main 1, and back up the Port Huron Wye to the yard. Lot of moves to get an engine turned around.
