N Meridian Rd Crossing in Kalispell, MT. Stopped near there for lunch once on the way to Glacier National Park.
Which line is that? It looks disused but looks can be deceiving.

Correct. BNSF Kalispell Branchline, recently taken back from Watco. This portion may be unused.

Re: NS Updates - 2020

Hello Detroit area railfans. Is there a safe spot to see all NS Detroit area trains in one location?? (before they split up for the detroit line and the wabash). Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Delray, YD, or Ecorse Jct. Every non local NS train that runs in Michigan passes through each ...

Are any track layout changes planned? I wonder if they plan to install a crossover between the new northbound home sign...
