Re: Michigan Shortline Updates June 2013

Is 301 the train that goes to Grayling? Based on what I know, 302/301 is the BC Pinconning Turn, 303/304 is Pinconning Grayling Turn. Traffic from Bay City North Yard goes out on 301 to Pinconning, where it is divided up between the Mackinac Sub and Huron Sub, 304 would come down from Grayling inte...

Re: Michigan Shortline Updates June 2013

LSRC 301 left Wennona Yard in Bay City at 7:10 with 1171 and 20 cars Is 301 the train that goes to Grayling? From what I understand 302 is Pinconning to BC, 301 is BC to Pinconning. Or whatever LSRC uses for the symbol. Paul, I believe the 3826 is the one that is now the 2025, per the HESR Fan site.

CSXT 113 and a YN3 ES40DC Was the power. Anyone know why LSRC is using CSX power like crazy? Runthrough Power on Grain Trains...

Re: Lincoln Secondary back ups.

That fire was a month ago. Why would it still be causing backups. Can't they use track warrants, or talk the trains by the signals? If the signals are not functioning, can't the dispatcher give the trains authority past the signals if the track ahead is clear? Not sure how those things work, but it...

The Z126 was northbound across M-25 at 11:30am with LSRC 2052 solo.
So that was the unit I heard today, heard them while doing a job over by the fairgrounds, had an interesting sounding horn.

HESR 2661 is solo on an empty coal train, cleared Bay City around 1AM. WGCR 9519 and HESR 8802 just returned to Bay City about 10 min ago, they should be just about to Wenona Yard by now.

Re: Michigan Shortline Updates May 2013

LSRC 800 and 1164 were both long-hood forward coming into Bay City this morning with the Z126 Job. They went back south with the 1174 and 1169. I would assume that the 800 and 1164 are going north on 301.

Re: Michigan Shortline Updates May 2013

Heard HESR 2668 coming south out of Wenona Yard and then heading east across the bridge about an hour and a half ago. Looks like there will be a southbound empty coal train tonight.
