And yes, D708 finally picked up the 82 cars on Friday that had been there since Tuesday, as well as the 20 cars in the Ogihara run around and went back to Lansing with 102 cars.
Amusing. A daily local with 102 cars.

Re: UP - CSX Merger Speculation

The pressure for an east west merger will come, it's only a matter of time. The regulatory reaction will vary depending on the make up of the legislature. But if Wall Street wants them merged the economic pressure will eventually overpower the regulators. Agree. It's only a matter of time until the...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: October, 2020.

Q326 and Q327 both currently between the lights at Sawyer. Q326 holding the main. edit to add: Q327 clear and on it's way west at 11:20. Appears Q326 may have cut at least 1 crossing. Wonder if they are staying a while or just cut them for a few minutes? Is cutting crossings easier with a DPU on the...

Q326 approaching WE Sawyer. It appears they will hold the main and wait for Q327 to go into the hole.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: October, 2020.

Q326 Just passed by the WE Sawyer headed east. CSX 4016 & 782. Shortish train. Maybe 50-60 cars. One of the loaded tie gons toward the front third of the train was just screaming when it went by. Wouldn't be surprised it was making enough heat somewhere to trip a HBD along the way.
