This is Mike's own description of his scenario.
Today you drew the New Wadsworth Local. New Wadsworth is a small industrial city on the mainline that has several "car load" industries. Carload customers are just that, they get one or two cars at a time, unlike the "trainload" customers we're use to serving. And with those customers you will drop off and pickup cars in the same trip.
Your power is a NE GP38-2#3938.
