All these took the Toledo sub to Deshler and the Garrett sub toward Chicago.

Re: IORY Lima

The southbound run of the LNL (Lima North Local) was at Hamler around 7:45 AM Monday. This is usually a little later than normal. Train goes north to Delta in the late evening and returns about 8 hours later trying get to Lima before outlawing.

Re: CP trackage rights over CSX Michigan and Ohio

May 1 1986 was the first of the Ohio routing. Michigan routing began a few years prior. Around 1990 was the end of the Ohio routing other than August 1994 when a Indian blockade saw several CP trains use the Ohio routing. Trackwork in the nineties would also see them operate via Ohio instead of Mich...

Are the northwest transfer switches power throws?

Re: IORY and CF&E northwest quadrant connection in Lima

The northwest connection was completed in late 2019
The southeast connection was also rebuilt.
The southeast connection was used at the start of ConRail to access the refinery when the Erie Lackawanna no longer was a through route.

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Thanks for the info, I did hear Honda would be shutting down and figured it would only be a matter of time before the trains stopped running into there. I guess there’s 3 or 4 trains that run into there and switch on a daily basis but I’ve only heard Q203 and Q231. Q246 would be another. Leaves in ...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I’ve been trying to keep track of all the trains currently running on the Scottslawn and figured I’d share what I’ve found over the past couple months here. Scheduled trains: I believe Q310 is an early bird and heads south to parsons before the sun rises. There’s a Y103 that switches industries dow...

Re: White Pigeon Grain Trains

My notes show the elevator's capacity as 3,180,000 bushels. That's about 825 car loads in 110 ton cars. I suppose it's possible but in my opinion unlikely that they'd be able to load 5-10 units trains "every" month. Looking forward to updates :) . Very unlikely. How big is the area they draw grain ...

So does the Adrian & Blissfield have trackage rights over CSX to get to the track?
