Re: NS Updates - 2020

NS 1067 (Reading Unit) came up on 120 this morning to Oakwood. It’s been reported to be going on 255 except I don’t known when that’ll depart.

573, CN Painted 6223 is at South Yard with 5 Lumber Loads.
Please use the correct reporting marks. CN painted could mean GTW, IC, WC, BCOL, BLE, or EJE.

Its GTW 6223, formerly DTI 223. EMD GP38-2.

Re: Port Huron Editorial: Safety rolls on archaic rail brakes

Toledo Blade stopped in house printing back in 2014. Detroit Media Partnership won the bid then.

Trucking newspapers around is common now. Advance newspapers previously moved all Michigan printing to Walker. Now they are closing the Walker press and moving that work to Cleveland, Ohio.

Re: CN puts Wisconsin-Michigan-Ontario lines up for sale

CN put in new signals along the Shoreline also... Might as well put that on the list too. My point was that upgrading infrastructure doesn't mean they will sell it. Technically part of the Holly is already gone south of Milwaukee Junction. I also heard that they were looking to spinoff the Holly in ...

Re: CN puts Wisconsin-Michigan-Ontario lines up for sale

The Mt. Clemens Subdivision shouldn't go anywhere. CN just installed a brand new signal system.

Why would they run via Durand? Its about 50 miles from Port Huron to Detroit.

Port Huron to Durand is 85 miles plus another 65 to Detroit.

Freeland Bean and Grain seems to only receive one car per spot.
