No signs of movement from W003 out of Grand Rapids yet today?
As of 11am nothing has been heard & I had also checked the overnight scanner archives.

Lite power consisting of a P42 facing east and a Dash 8 facing west just went east onto the Amtrak Michigan line near Porter. Any idea where that is headed?

Re: Pedestrian Hit By GDLK Train in Kalamazoo Yesterday.

Thankfully for the crew they were able to slow down enough to avoid killing him. Thankfully for him, he wasn't killed. I'm glad he was cited for his stupidity. It makes me wonder how loud the headphones had to be playing in order for him not to hear a train horn right behind him. Hit by a train, an...

Re: GDLK Operations

Can somebody give an updated diesel roster. I'm not sure what's dead or alive when I go by Hughart Yard. 7030 and I think 4124 are currently OOS. Are 3534 and 3531 still around, or did one go out for work? Also interested in the whereabouts of the 3531. It was one of the originals on the property. ...

Re: CN Updates - February 2020

401 is departing Durand westbound at 10:48am with UP 1995 leading. Does this train go beyond Battle Creek? For those who don't know 1995 is in CNW pain, up with a flag on it. By 205 at 1225. Long cut of empty beam cars on it. To my knowledge 401 only runs as far as battle creek. Thanks, I didn't th...

Re: GDLK Operations

Ten minutes to, apply handbrakes, uncouple, dial dispatch, wait, wait, wait, get lined around, run north, dial dispatch, wait, wait, run south, recouple, move marker, release handbrakes. Hah, child prodigy is a little off on this hard decision. But when you think you're always right, you always are.

Re: GDLK Operations

Theres been a change, GM siding is full of cars now. So the plan is the run arounds will be at Park and Cowling both times. Being power switches it will take a little longer. Might limit the view in both directions from the theater car, but a push-pull arrangement would save a whole lot of effort. ...
