Looks like CSXT 5000 to me. Diversity in Motion!

Re: Grand Rapids Eastern boxcars?

http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=3073249 The MS gons always ended up in Muskegon, though there was no use for them other than using them as buffer cars when going to Webb. I seem to recall something about another railroad using those reporting marks and the cars would get sent to...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: 5/07/2015

All depends on lds/mtys. I had a 128 car, 8000ft, 13000 ton train the other day. 93lds - 35mtys. 1 ton per foot is not a valid measurement in any form. I've had longer trains that weighed half that because they're mostly empties. The heaviest trains we run on our territory are sand trains, some of w...

Re: New CSX locomotives

Seriously MQT, maybe you should start your own website for the CSX power updates. You can separate it from the board and run it as you see fit. I'm an "organized" person as well, but you cant control other people, especially on an Internet message board. You just look like the Internet police. I use...

Re: CSX Locomotive Roster News, Updates & Information Thread

Just a note, CSXT 9699 was seen finally on her own leading the Geometry Train recently down south FWIW. What kind of Locomotive is this because whenever I search CSXT 9699 I come up with Chessie #3802 at the B&O museum because that was its former number. That's because it's not 9699, it's 9969, a f...

Re: Train Crew Antics "vs" Railfans

As I think more about this, I believe what amazes me the most is that even after writing a letter to the sup of the carrier, he then writes an article about it in Trains Magazine boasting about it like he's some stoic railfan hero that has done foamers proud from coast to coast. Evidently, he didn't...

Re: Train Crew Antics "vs" Railfans

I will preface this by saying everyone is responsible for their own actions. I'm not saying what that conductor did was right or wrong from a professional standpoint. Sure, there are things he could get his wrist slapped for. What makes my pot boil over is the fact that these stupid old foamtards wo...

Re: Them green lights to bright?

If the LED's became too bright in the fog, that'd be a welcome problem. Normal signals, you typically have a mater of seconds to see the signal, depending on how thick the fog is. The other thing with LED's is they don't get warm, so in snow/blowing snow conditions, they don't melt the snow off the ...
