Water leak spraying passengers

https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreakout ... _causes_a/
Appears it's in India - water leak on the platform sprays water into most of the passenger cars, directly at many passengers as the train passes the leak.

Re: White Pigeon Grain Trains

Just confirming - no further updates on CSX getting any additional grain for GDLK in White Pigeon, correct? Run one on CSX, NS fixes their pricing, and back to NS it goes, eh?

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - January 2021

Thanks to DriverJon asking what Portec is yesterday, I have to thank Andrew Trains a hundred times over for responding that it was Fortech, not Portec, an industry at Green Oak that D708 occasionally does business with. For YEARS I have heard D708 they had to go to South Lyon because they had work ...

I also have not seen a single milepost on the Hamilton Branch, so I have no clue as to where the railroad starts on paper and where it ends.
MP17 is in the middle of the Hamilton branch, located at Fillmore Rd:

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - January 2021

What are the Howell yardmaster's thoughts on having D708 just do Lansing to Fowlerville, have D707 run west as it normally does, but change the pickup/setoff of GLC traffic to D705/D706? Depending which way CSX wants to route all GLC traffic west or east, have D705 do the dropoff/D706 pickup, or D70...
