Same power as yesterdays D706 which was completely turned around as CSX 3300 was leading again. LOTS of Lansing work to do when they get there. First time 705 has been by after daylight. New ...

Re: Great Lakes Central September 2020 Updates

GLC Northbound currently departing Howell at 20:34 after being over on CSX for the last two hours setting off 42 cars and picking up 52 cars including 30 Ash loads. VERY distinguishable horn on the SD35 383, former MRL. Sounds like an older NS unit from years ago, Hope they hang on to it and the oth...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

D70517 had 156 cars out of Detroit this morning, the same amount D706 had going into Detroit yesterday. Cleared Howell at 05:50 with CSX 8619+206+3300 on the lead. Crew was not happy, and neither was the dispatcher that they had to run through the pass around the 66 cars for GLC that D708 left parke...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

V834 grain empty with 90 cars went west by Howell at 15:05. CSX 103+598 on the head end. Must have gone to Grand Ledge or would have heard it as Williamston by now as it ran around its train. Train may have been V874. GLC with 396+390+329 was over on CSX at 13:00 to pick up the split crossing 84 car...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

Doesn't mean much with my counting, but 79+106 is 185 and I counted 174. Power was 408+358+6070, by Howell at 08:10. At least the first 100 cars beyond the first dozen were all GLC cars that were picked up at Ann Pere the last few days. This many cars sure ought to cut down the amount of cars on 327...

The D908 train that followed D906 out of Lansing last night had 84 cars for GLC. Arrived in Howell at 12:20, departed back west to Lansing at 03:20. At least one if not multiple road crossings were blocked during the entire time they were here. 908 pulled into the pass on top of the 84 cars GLC sat ...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

Of the 145 cars on D705 this morning, 62 of them came out of Detroit. By Howell at 03:45. Same power that was reported by SD80MAC. Nice to see something different on D705 beside what went east on D706, let alone four units. GLC was at Ann Pere for nearly five hours late Friday afternoon and early ev...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

This mornings D70611 with the usual 38+3271 power went east through the siding at Howell again at 07:28 with 74 cars. Todays 706 did not look any different than the old Q328 with the type and kinds of cars on it. D708 yesterday left their 74 car set off for GLC on the main again and picked up the 65...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

W00310 Inspection train with CSX 5222+9669 is being delayed at Williamston for a possible 30 minutes due to a signal maintainer having track time up to 09:30. That was probably D705 Tom, D708 brought back 75 GLC cars from Howell on Tuesday, 20 more yesterday, but not from GLC, which make close to th...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

D708 (don’t know who else it could be...) Eastbound @ Williamston 0930. Couldn’t see the single locomotive through the trees, but he had a long string on empty container tables at the end. Would these be the cars out of Trowbridge siding possibly? That would likely be D706, it’s first run was suppo...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: August, 2020.

For those speculating, guessing, or just hearing from hearsay, GLC Z-62402 arrived over onto CSX at Ann Pere at 11:15 with GLC 399+382+393. They backed 47 cars westward for CSX pickup and then pulled into the siding to pick up the 82 cars left there by CSX yesterday. In making this move, all three c...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

D708 came back from Ann Pere around 3:40, leaving a lot of cars on the CSX main for GLC. They actually had to run down to Brighton to switch onto the siding to pass all of the cars they dropped off. With irregular D708s the last week it’s left the interchange packed. D70801 arrived west of Howell a...
