Re: CSX Train Location Updates: October, 2020.

Got lucky and caught Z151 SB in Comstock Park by sheer luck. Only about 15-20 of the short covered hoppers with them today. 4 units in total with a GP38 in the middle.

Southbound Michigan Shore at Hayes St, lots of those new gondolas in tow. Looks like a long train.

Re: Michigan Short Line Updates: September 2020

Per a report in the field (my grandparents), a Southbound Lake State stone train is passing their camp site in Oscoda (?). That’s all they told me but better something then nothing in this case. Train is passing as we speak or just passed through.

D702 clear Grandville. No idea if W003 has made it through yet or if they are in the hole at Hudsonville. No mention of them on the scanner.

Re: Where Is It?

The bridge was removed before the track to it was removed. IIRC, it was removed concurrent with rehab work MDOT was doing on that stretch of I-75. Corunna Yard saw some usage as car storage near the end. The track came out first, save for the crossings. The bridge came out during its own little pro...

Re: CN Updates September 2020

What I assume is 275 just passed the depot in Battle Creek with a pair of NS units leading EB

Second freight EB at 10:45 pair of CN GEVO’s leading, just a plain junk freight.

Re: Where Is It?

That track was still in place beyond Linden Rd all the way to Ballenger Hwy up until about 2010 or so. The crossings and everything was intact, including a brand new setup at the nearby Lennon Rd crossing that was removed. For a long time there was a large "For Sale" sign at the former Ballenger cr...
