BORON LOCAL AND CABOOSE. Boron local is departing on weekday mornings from Barstow and arriving to Boron sometime before noon. On this day (10/2/2019) they arrived at about 1030. After arrival power was disconnected from train and recoupled with the rear of the train, then picked up caboose and reversed to Borax plant. They need to use caboose because of the long reversing move required to enter Borax facility. After all work is done Boron local heads back to Barstow sometime afternoon.
