Heard a new symbol last Friday afternoon. Anyone know what NS 934 would have been? An OCS perhaps?

Normally OCS trains are normally 940 or 950 series but any 900 series train is gonna be a odd one. A 900 can also be a work train or FRA test car train.

The 900s are work trains (rail, ballast, etc.), lite power (including the ever popular, oxymoronic "lite power with cars"), the occasional OCS and other random stuff.  The 934 you heard was a work train.
