Actually could be heading towards Kalamazoo not entirely sure. Current time is 10:40am is about the time I heard the horns goi...

Re: Plymouth Sub Grand Rapids and other lines

Good evening or morning which ever way you look at it. I'm kind of curious if someone could guide me to some action. I wanted to know how often CSX sends a train down the Plymouth sub towards Detroit. One of these days I would like to record a train going across the old Chessie Bridge on Patterson ...

Re: Plymouth Sub Grand Rapids and other lines

I know the Grand Elk is on the NS lines going North and South to Kalamazoo and wanted to know what are some good times to get action on this line as well considering I live near that line. It would be only a 5 minute drive to the crossings on 36th and what not. Since you'll be living so close to th...

Re: Visiting Holland

I used to live in Holland before the Pandemic. What has been shared in here is accurate. Usually if I'm up to chasing Amtrak along Chicago Drive I start in Holland get ahead of him and stop in Hudsonville before he gets there. Have to be quick though because once Amtrak clears Waverly Yard he high t...

First Train Chase and Youtube Video

So Friday night and Saturday which of course was the last couple days I had so much chasing some trains. I was only able to chase Amtrak but I did give a chase to CSX Q327 yesterday evening and got a wonderful video shot of him coming down the Saugatuck hill. Having my scanner installed and learning...

Re: Hello There. New Railfan

That's gonna be a lot for a single day! Amtrak you should have no problems with. After that go straight to Lansing and watch the heads up thread for CSX Q329 - likely your only candidate on the CSX side between GR and Plymouth during the midday. Durand will be Durand - might be nonstop or you might...

Re: CSXT Train Location Updates: May, 2019

21:48 EDT Q327 BY BANGOR CAM. LONG TRAIN, COULDN'T READ LOCO NUMBERS. THEY APPEAR TO HAVE GONE INTO SIDING AT GROSS FOR P370. P370 PASSED BY AROUND 22:12 EDT. Not to mention that apparently there is an auto accident near the tracks. I'm assuming the train crossing was 120th avenue in Holland. Also ...

Re: Amtrak Updates - May 2019

Amtrak 370 on Grand Rapids, MI sub just past Zeeland, MI calling out a clear signal. The dispatcher mentioned something about an accident near the tracks on 120th Avenue so it seems like the train is a bit behind on schedule for this. Nothing from the defect detector on this line owned by CSX. Time ...
