Re: CN Updates - January 2018

It seems to me that NS ordered these with "4,000 HP" since they didn't want standard "4,400 HP" to save fuel! The 1,000+ "Catfish Units" should be as I mentioned....... "C40-9W!!!!" Correct me if I am wrong!!!![/color] :| All NS Dash 9s have been upgraded to 4400 hp since being purchased.

Re: CN Updates - October 2017

950 came south out of Pontiac at 11:10 am with GTW 4626, CN 5732, and BCOL 4603 with 3 cars. I’m assuming the two road units are for a 119 tonight.

Re: CN Updates - October 2017

Quick question for any of the more knowledgeable Holly Sub rail fans out there; I caught a train at Watkins Lake Road today heading north leaving Pontiac. The power was GTW 4929 and EJE 658 with 58 cars (mostly empty racks and i beam cars). I know it wasn't 503 because I saw 503 an hour later. Does...

Re: CN Updates - October 2017

I'm no expert but engines that go south to Toledo can either return north on a 391 to Battle Creek via the Holly and Flint subs, or on a 382 to Port Huron. Not sure which is more likely. Both tend to run in the evening or early AM through Detroit. 382 comes out of CSX’s Walbridge Yard and they don’...

Used to be the junction with the Michigan Air Line. Too bad those signals were replaced, eh?

What is this EMD/CAT locomotive? This would be a good train to see!!!! OK, you mean "Amtrak 353" since 352 is northbound at n...

Re: CN September Updates 2017

A NB on Main 2 of the Holly went past MP 22.5 at around 2 pm with a GE followed by a 5600. Different numbers than what was reported earlier going by on 503 through Detroit so maybe another reroute. Long train with some autoracks on the rear only. There had been restricted speeds on both mainline tr...

Thank you! I thought so but I wanted to double check first.

NS 120 Still Going to Detroit?

NS 911 is leading train 120 which went to Sterling Yard last time I checked. But the reports on heritageunits have Decatur, IL as the train's destination. I thought this was incorrect, but I looked around for more information on this train. On some sites, the destination says Detroit, but on the wik...
