Since when is there an IN 5902 and 5901?
Sorry. Thought that was what I read. Different numbers on the engines. I’ve just been looking at them and learning a bit because I have to go down that way next week for work.

Anyone hear from D705 yesterday?
I didn't hear anything for him, nor, was there anything in the scanner archives.

Could be short crews on the east side with the new running of Q510/511 and also everyone’s favorite Covid-19.

If I'm reading this correctly the steel coils are from Gerdau in Jackson, MI? Yes. The NS coil cars are a static set of coils that go back and forth between Gerdau in Ja...
