K862-13 is in the hole at Williamston waiting on a westbound. Did D708 go East this morning?

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?

Two locos light going eastbound through Williamston just a few minutes ago. Grain train at Webberville or Ann Pere? Anyone got a symbol?

I'm good! Busy. New boss running things makes my job a little more complicated... I'll be around on deck this fall. Hope to see you then.

Re: The Mason Depot Is Toast

I was there... Came in as an electrical fire in the basement. Very stubborn fire that seemed to slow burn for a long time. I wasn't able to see the extent of the damage, but I believe fire damage is going to be limited to the basement with extensive smoke damage throughout. Building should be struct...

Re: TSBY location help

It's the same location, Jim. The grading of the parking lot was probably done when improvements were made for the building over the years. That's not that far of a stretch considering the original image is probably from 40 years ago. The angle of the sun on the locomotive would put it mid-day to aft...

Re: TSBY location help

I don't recall a depot or freight house like that in Vassar. The background doesn't look right either. I'm thinking this may be Caro. That would be the only possibility where there are multiple tracks like in this slide.

For the users of the CSX West MI ATCS, what server settings are you using? I cannot get my computer to connect and display anything... I can watch the CN Flint sub all day, but nothing on CSX. Little help?

WB just through Williamston had two UPs on the head end. Looked like all covered hoppers. Didn't catch the engine #s.

CSXT 8089 West sitting in the OS at WE Williamston. My son ran down and talked to the crew flagging cars through the crossing at Putnam St. Sounds like they died on HOS. He didn't catch a train number... Odd place to stop a train if they knew they would have to wait for a recrew...
