Re: CN Updates- November 2019

Wb coal train with 2CN mm 205 at 0850 C715, it was a coke train. Coke train, eh? Looking at the Durand camera archives it came off the Holly Sub in Durand at 7:35am. Any chance this is new business or is this just a fluke? This specific one came from the Wheeling in Toledo. Supposedly this was a te...

Re: CN Updates- November 2019

Another mystery train by Linden at 8:10 a m, just going by MP 59.9 detector as I type this. Day off work today. This time it was a Northbound with 240 Axles, that's 57 cars with 2-six axle locos - didn't catch the locomotives. The only train it could have been is 591, unless it was an extra. CONFIR...

Re: Upper Peninsula Railroad Operations Thread

I'm heading up to Upper Michigan Thursday and will be there until Sunday. I know this past weekend the BN duo was on 7 Tilden, is that normally the case? Do weekends affect LS&I's ops at all? Also, does anyone know where we are in the L541/542/545 cycle? I may try and snag that on my way back home ...

Re: CN Updates- August 2019

Questions for the resident CN experts: Train 514...is it an A or an L train? What manifests are commonly seen in Durand mid/late afternoon. Trying to match symbols up with trains I saw a couple weeks ago, so I'd appreciate it if stuff can be narrowed down. Thanks in advance guys! :) L514. In the mi...
