Re: CN Updates January 2021

251 is North of Linden at 4:32pm, and North of the detector at 56.2 with 516 axles, should be 126 cars.

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Northbound by the detector at 56.2 (just North of Linden) at 6:05pm with 602 axles. Assume this is 251 with a nice size train - maybe 145 or so cars.

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Northbound by the detector just North of Linden about 15 minutes ago - 456 axles I think - probably 251.

Should be getting close to or in Durand by now (as I type this).

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Hi LansingRailFan. So what I saw this morning at 9:13am was not 116 then, it was 274? I did not see the whole train, but did note autoracks on the head end instead of the tail end. 116 usually has autoracks on the tail end, so racks on the head end was interesting. Keep us informed LRF (and others),...

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Thanks LansingRailfan.

Southbound 116 by Linden at 9:13am. Didn't catch the power or car count, but 394 on the axle count. He did have a few autoracks on the head end.

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Thanks guys for clearing up my 274 question. We will have to see if this symbol goes down the Holly in the future, but I think its safe to say its not a typical symbol on the Holly Sub right now. 280 is the typical autorack symbol for the Holly Sub. Does anyone know where 276 usually runs from and t...

Re: CN Updates January 2021

Hey GTW6401 - I didn't know 274 went down the Holly Sub. I am aware (of course) of 280, but could never figure out if 274 and 276 were Holly Sub trains or not.

Thanks in advance.

Re: CN Train Location Updates - December 2020

Hey, we will take the additional trains anytime!! Too bad the GM Orion plant isn't shipping anymore and no more coal trains. Those would be nice additions, but don't see it happening. They still run coal trains, but not on CN, it's NS out of Chicago to Toledo, then up to Monroe, or where ever they go.

Re: CN Train Location Updates - December 2020

Way late here, but there was another Northbound by Linden at 5:30pm - all autoracks, so another 251 maybe? Had 492 on the axle count. There was also Southbound 514 a maybe a hour or so before that Northbound at 5:30, but was busy and didn't post. Been fairly busy on a Christmas Eve night, but I'm gu...

Re: CN Train Location Updates - December 2020

Northbound 251 by Linden at 2:12pm. Did not see the power but heard on the scanner at the Hotbox Detector at MP 56.2 (about 2 miles North of Linden), axle count was 678, so if he had only the 2 - 6 axle units identified above by GTWChris, that's about 166 cars. He did have about 100 short covered ho...

Re: CN Train Location Updates - December 2020

So yesterday I reported 251 by Linden at 5:15pm. After that until just after 11pm, there were 4 more trains by Linen! That's 5 trains in 6 hours, which is a lot for the Holly Sub in that short amount of time. After its dark, I can't see anything, so reading the other posts above there was 514, 280, ...
