Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Yesterday's Q311 came north through Mounds around 3pm and had CSX 3248 leading & 8365 SD40 trailing 2nd of 2 units. Today's Q311 just came north at 2:30pm, I missed it as I got home, the horn sounded different, so might be foreign power. 3 extras also used the Scottslawn Friday night, one train came...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I got a loaded grain extra coming south today around 2:10pm with CSX 3469 & 32xx, didn't catch a symbol though. Q311 just came north at 3:30pm had CSX 3098 & 3188 with a shorter train then usual. Y103 with CSX 5392 & 5359 was waiting on the Buckeye Line north of CP Mounds, soon after Q311 cleared, t...

Re: Two abandoned Columbus rail spurs

Hey guys, this is my current neighborhood for the last 15 years now, I live off 5th Ave! Yes, the only spur off the C&O in Grandview is the curved track between 3rd & 5th Ave which runs between Burger King on 5th Ave and Giant Eagle Market District and serves Columbus Builders Supply, and contrary t...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

A rough day on the Scottslawn south end, H708 came south around 2pm with CSX 157 in YN2 paint solo on the train 21 cars. They've been sitting at Camp over an hour now as NS has a tie gang on the Dayton District. The crew is going to outlaw, so it sounds like they will have to back the train up to Mc...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Today I caught H708 around 11:45am working the McKinley siding picking up cars from FP Supply. Then around 2:10pm a very late Q310 came south with CSX 443 in YN2 paint leading 7005 rebuild. Of course I've been waiting on Q311, and it just snuck by me north through Mounds 3:35pm, I did not catch the ...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Yep, apparently the Ferromex power did go back on Q311 on Saturday, not sure how I could've missed it, I was home and outside most of the day and never heard a horn. Today's Q311 went through Mounds around 2:15pm, I did not see it, but heard the leader on the radio CSX 3215. Then just now another Q6...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Yes, I saw the extra freight at 11:30pm after leaving the bar trackside, couldn't believe it was UP GE leader, and then 2 Ferromex SD70ACe, I wasn't sure if it was Q310, another railfan told me it could've been a Q686 reroute which has UP power from Rose Lake, IL. So far I haven't heard Q311 today, ...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I just heard a horn NB, this time of day I knew it was an extra, went up 2 Mounds to investigate thinking it might be the T664 coming back north, but instead it was a V013-21 empty grain train, power was CSX 39 & 142 both in YN2 paint. Doesn't seem to be on the CSX List, it was mostly INTX grain car...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

CSX 500 Spirit of Grafton is trailing 2nd of 3 units on a T664/U664 coal train which now utilizes the Scottslawn Secondary to travel between PA & WV, via Ridgeway, Galion, and Greenwich. It came through south empty on Wednesday, and will likely return loaded back north on Friday or the weekend, so b...

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

Thanks Man o' War, seems I was mistaken in thinking the Holly had more traffic then Mount Clemens, I was thinking of Amtrak up to Pontiac as well, but hearing that seems like they can't afford to part with either line. I just assumed there was more Detroit-Chicago trains, then Detroit-Ontario and po...

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

As soon as I saw this my first thought was the Mount Clemens Sub, but I guess I didn't consider the lines in the UP, certainly much more likely to be sold. Does anyone know a current daily train count on the Mount Clemens Sub? I thought it was 4 per day, 2 locals, but what do I know, I'm in Ohio! Ar...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

So definitely some changes on the Scottslawn, Q310 has been arriving later then usual, coming south in the mornings now, sometimes coming through Mounds around Noon, I've seen it with 1x1 power arrangements. Q311 has also been running in the afternoon still, but twice this week it had a 3x1 power, t...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

The other night while drinking at a trackside bar here, I saw what I think was a G610 loaded grain train going south, then within 30 minutes what I think was E312 came north, must've been waiting outside Parsons for the grain train to arrive, then immediately came up the Scottslawn. So the extras ar...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I did hear that Q310 coming south in the afternoon on Sunday. The last few days Q311 has been running right on time coming north around 2pm through Mounds. I've seen almost no extra trains coal or grain the last couple of weeks.
