As of 2110: the IC unit is confirmed, IC1072.
It is not IC1072 as that engine does not exist. Perhaps you mean IC1027?
IC SD70s span 1000-1039.

Re: LSRC SD70's?

You beat me to it. Just watched a clip on FB of the three leasers making their way to Durand. Anyone know if the LSRC will be replacing them with something? Seems like they will need the extra power in the next year or so. AFAIK they were never actually leased by LSRC, just stored for CIT like the ...

NS 8995 and 6995 were on an extremely late Q116.
Also, NS classifies their Dash 9s as C44-9Ws.

Was one of the other units a barn? 5466 went west on 397 on Tuesday with a barn leading, so I'm interested in knowing if they're still together.
502 today had CN 5466, CN 8945 and CN 5291.

397 today had CN 5612 and BCOL 4648.

800 runs to Durand?
No, they did today because they are delivering a grain train to the GLC for the NS.

Re: Lake State Z127 Flint turn

Z127 goes on duty in the early morning, usually around 5am. They have been going south anytime between 06:30-11:00.
Typically to get a "good", well-lit northbound train it'd have to run sometime after 1600. Otherwise it's horrendously backlit.

Re: Flint/Holly Subs Train Symbol Help

Evan will probably correct me if I'm wrong, but 504 seems to be the local symbol used in Port Huron, regardless of where the train is going. The PH to Flint local would be the train interchanging with the railroad in Lapeer. I think I've seen (heard) the 504 symbol used to move trains through the t...

Not as a RLK unit, but it is a former CSXT unit so it is possible it came up that way.

Re: Michigan G&W Loco Roster News, Updates & Info Thread

Just a FWIW, didn't see it posted. HESR 2027 is off to MEI, never to return to the HESR. This was the former NECR 3852. Words of the mouth have that the next engine getting the orange dip on HESR will be the HESR 2028, formerly CMGN 2014. Though, this will not happen this year. HESRs 2 SD40M-2s are ...

E271, he came west and went south at Durand.
There's a coal train at Durand now with BNSF 9291 leading.
