Re: Belpre Industrial Parkersburg Railroad

Thank you for posting Pie! Nice video. Anyone know the heritage and history of those 3 engines? For anyone interested in catching them, it seems like if you show up at or before 5:00am at High Yard in Parkersburg, they go on duty around then. Here's a video from my chase yesterday, to give an idea ...

Re: Michigan shortline update: March 2020

This is late and won’t help anyone, but maybe it’s good for future reference. LSRC 6355 and 6352 left Wixom at 7:47am for Flint, and I later caught 6351 and 6302 heading south through Holly at 11:00 (and they presumably arrived in Wixom sometime after). This was my first time ‘chasing’ on this line....

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates December 2019

CSX Q328 by Williamston @ 8:38 AM CSX 31 CSX 5249 Only 39 cars on Q328. Q329 not called until 10:30, so early to mid PM for Howell. If 328 gets to Detroit fast enough, the power on it can come right to GPR on 329 like the last three days. There will be no Q328 or Q329 on Christmas Day. After Q328 w...

Re: NS West Virginia Secondary-Columbus Oh to Alloy WV

Other than a few NS coal trains loaded at Buckingham a couple years ago, the only traffic there was Ohio Central, not exactly a crippling blow to the KNWA. They still make pretty good time for constant 25mph on the Ohio Side, though there are definitely some slow orders around.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - July 2019

Q32814 went east by Howell at 11:48 with CSX 832+5237 and 107 cars. Evidently Pie39 wasn't here to see it, or at least didn't report it. The already reported many times Q32914 went by Howell at 08:06 with its single unit 860 and moving right along well at track speed with its 83 cars. Every time th...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - July 2019

I caught 329 at South Lyon around 7:30 with 860 solo. Was told 328 left GR an hour ago or so...any idea how long that’d be to Howell? I’m hanging out at the signal bridge in town.

Re: Kanawha River Railroad

Typically, 381 leaves Hobson Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday around midday, they usually go on duty at 10am or so. 380 is similar on the opposite days (nothing runs Saturday), but they have to work with NS to get out of the yard, so it can be into the evening. All of this is potentially off if there's a coa...

Don't want to make a new thread for this, so sticking this here: Found a GLC Cadillac to Traverse City video decently made, taken in July 2018: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdAdQSnVBgM fdAdQSnVBgM I’m not sure if that’s the one you were going for, that’s mine from Ohio.

Re: Great Lakes Central Updates November 2018

More or less on topic. I’m going to drive up tomorrow morning to catch the Cadillac turn, is there any snow?

Thanks!

Re: GLC Updates July 2018

They're switching the GR&I yard now. I'm guessing they'll go north, I'll try to update when they leave.

390 still in the northland. 3 cars for TC came in this evening and looks like they have been moved to North Yard.
Much appreciated. I think I'll be chasing tomorrow.

Re: GLC Updates July 2018

It doesn't appear that it's been to McBain yet, there's some rust on the rails and a highrail just came in. Maybe the train is following?

Re: GLC Updates April 2018

Returned to Cadillac at 1745. x-R7KxNMAqw I wonder why they've got that old AA Hopper in the consist! Will they scrap it, or are they using it for sand? I also wonder why the SRI isn't using it for their photo freight, don't they have a couple hoppers just like that? I've seen it go south through M...

Another big cut of sand hoppers on rear. As per strange GLC schedule comments above; a crewman just tol...
