Re: Lake State to Lease CSX Line from Plymouth to Mt. Morris

Is Lakes States maintaining the current signal system on the piece they are leasing? Unless they have received permission from the FRA to remove the signal system, they must maintain it. I'm not aware that they have filed or will file for that permission. LSRC tried shutting off the signals between...

Re: Track That Runs Parallel to I-280 in Toledo

It does appear the tracks are in all the way to the fuel place, but from the Google Maps image it appears that the facility does not have cars that are regularly stored at this location. Do they receive a limited number of cars per year or are they just in and out with what they do receive quickly ...

Re: CP back on CSX?

So will this train use CSX's Saginaw Sub to Plymouth then Detroit Sub to Oak Yard? No, Q165/166 will run Buffalo to North Baltimore, then to Chicago and Vise versa. The work they do at North Baltimore will drop off/ pick up cars for/from the Q150/151 to take to oak yard. at least that is what I'm h...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: April 2017

D702 has paused in Plymouth. Waiting for it at Middle River. Was passing over Sheldon Rd. at 11:45. Heard something on the scanner about a pilot. UPDATE: 12:25 clearing Middle River. I counted 97 cars. GR crews are not qualified from Plymouth to Flint. Until they get qualified they must call Pilots...
