Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Today's Q311 had CSX 5500 Spirit of Cincinnati leading, then they ran a V621 empty grain train up a few hours later. If you check Page 1 of the post, I wrote a list of all the trains that I've seen on the Scottslawn over the years. I think we're down to 4 sets of coal trains now, N312/E312, N319/E31...

Meant to post on Wednesday, CSX 530 led unit train 57 empty autoracks north through CP Mounds 6pm, I assume they were heading for Honda, but no idea what the train symbol was, or if these were autoracks ...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I saw Q311 come north around 2pm with CSX 909 leading, then an extra came north 3pm right after, I didn't see it, but did hear a T601 loaded coal to IHB in Chicago, so that was probably it. Then around 7pm I heard another NB, it was E312/319 empty Duke coal train.

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

CSX 9969 led the W003 Geometry train north through Mounds 4:30pm, they are running up to Ridgeway, not sure if they were tying down there or coming back south, so be on the lookout!

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

I never did get the Q311 yesterday with the UP power, just didn't wanna sit in the rain waiting on it, mad I missed it though. Today's Q311 went north around 3:45pm, was a massive land barge, maybe 150 cars including a cut of maybe 30 DODX flat cars again near the rear, only had 2 GE's as power, I w...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

That N319 also had a 2x1 power arrangement, midtrain DPU, that was definitely my first time seeing a DPU on CSX mid coal train A heads up, I might've missed it or it still hasn't come north yet, but Q311 has UP power trailing and the last unit is UP 1845, an SD40N, very rare in the east, it led a Q3...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

Incredibly busy day on the Scottslawn south end, an N312 came down I think after Noon, then I heard a horn at 1:45pm coming north assuming it was Q311, but instead it was an empty grain train had CSX 341 & 417 as power, may have been a V151 I heard mentioned on the scanner. Then around 4pm a very la...

Re: CSX scottslawn secondary

The Q131/132 are auto parts trains from Mexico-Detroit, should be all double stacks and maybe boxcars also. They do take the Toledo Branch north of Ridgeway, and will often have UP run through power on them. The Scottslawn south end has been as busy as I can remember the last 24 hours. H708 came sou...

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...

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 ...
