Sounds like N800-27 will go to Grand Junction and cut crossings, then wait on a cab.

N800 @ 5:44pm westward reported by the DD mp CG91.9 with 528 axles & 6,912 feet long. 2 engines & 129 loaded coal cars.
N800-27 cleared St. Joseph Bridge at 5:59 pm, and is currently headed eastward, not westward, as reported earlier, through Benton Harbor.

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

N800-15 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 8791 leading. Sounds like they are holding up at Riverside until P370 goes through, then on to Grand Junction, unless D801 is still there (power from N801 had to help Q326 up the hill at East Saugatuck earlier.) If D801 is still at ...

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

N801-14 is currently going through Benton Harbor. Sounds like BNSF 6086 leading. Still an activation failure at 64th st. CG 67.5, not at Holland as I first thought. I can't find a 64th St. crossing near Hartford. High wind warning CGC 23.4 to CGC 34.5 on the Fremont Sub. Winds between 55 mph and 60 ...

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

Q326-15 is currently going through Hartford. Sounds like CSXT 804 leading. Also sounds like they have a false-partial activation at 64th St. in Holland. I'm not sure what kind of gates they have there, but I know that those really long crossing gates don't like the wind we're having today across Wes...

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

I don't know where E800 is, I don't think it is still in Riverside. Track inspectors have fixed the broken rail in the crossing, now have to repatch the crossing to make it passable for civilian traffic. I believe it is the Riverside Rd. crossing. RN says Amtrak (P370) will probably show up at Porte...
