Re: GTW Diesel Roster

A handful of the GP38/ac's were rebuilt to 38m (microprocessor) standards but that might have been done after the CN merger. IIRC they were 5800, 5801, 6200, 6201 & 6203.

Re: GTW Diesel Roster

6046 and 6049 (ex D&TS GP7's) were on the roster at time of CN merger. There is a rumor they were upgraded to GP9 specs.

Re: GTW Diesel Roster

I thought about getting into which units had dynamics and which didn't, but decided that was getting too detailed, even for me. From what I understand, the CV and GT units that were assigned to the GTW that had dynamics had them disconnected. A few of them had the DB blisters removed and covered wi...

Re: GTW Diesel Roster

I like your list SD80!

4442-4450 had dynamics and were originally acquired for the eastern GT operation. A handful of them were sold to the short line that took over the original GT line, St. Lawrence & Atlantic.

Re: White Pigeon Grain Trains

First I'm surprised NS could have responded that quickly with lower pricing and second I'm surprised NS could beat CSX's rate for movements that terminate on CSX :? Just confirming - no further updates on CSX getting any additional grain for GDLK in White Pigeon, correct? Run one on CSX, NS fixes th...

Returned to Cadillac at 1540.
There are a couple cars of cement there.

I wonder if they have the crews have to be careful sorting the black tank cars between Cadillac (inbound loads) and Kalkaska (outbound butane). It must be challenging from the ground telling where each tank car goes.
