Time for gates!!!
Up plant gets paper rolls in boxcars.I work at the Barrington plant and we get 5 every day.
What was the engine number?
Didn’t think that spur was even used, it’s a dead end.
Flashers will do. No need for gates...
Speed limit is like 10mph?
I think the Paper co gets boxcars

Department training last night for the Bellmawr firefighters focused on Vehicle Extrication Techniques Refresher. Crews first reviewed vehicle stabilization & multiple ways to gain access under the hood for vehicle fires. Each crew then rotated through techniques for extricating patients with use of full hydraulic rescue tools & use of just the hydraulic combination rescue tool. Good session for back to basics learning & update on new techniques to combat new vehicle technologies.
Special thanks to Beaver Brook Motors for the providing us with the vehicles and use of their facility. ... See MoreSee Less
