Re: CSX Train Location Updates: August, 2020.

Heard the RN say “no, he’s not on the property yet. The NS is having a problem with a switch at Porter.” Must be referring to P370 as train tracker still shows him sitting at Porter. Then the RN called Q327 to get an exact location so he could get a cab to take the crew back to GR. Ns replaced the ...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

@Tom my suspicion is that they didn’t have helpers, and thus just took half of the N800 train up the hill, and might double back for the rear if they have time for it. Hi ya Saturnalia, D801-07 had the 2 usual CSX engines #3230 + #3200 when they had traveled westward from Holland with the empty coa...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: May, 2020

I wonder if Q326 was scheduled early to allow a long MofW work window? Once coal is clear, the next passage on the GR sub west of Holland would be D700 late tonight. I know various crossing replacements are in the works (Bangor just done last week) and there is a lot of work equipment and supply st...
