Re: CSX Grain, Phosphate, & Ethanol South of Cincy

Too bad. There was a lot of trains on that line until they started routing stuff around Queensgate. When CSX aquired the "Bee line" from Conrail that started the sequence of events to move traffic away from Queensgate.

Re: West Michigan RR Abandonment Petition Coming

WMI has now begun rehabing rail east of CR681. Still lots of tank cars. The plan is to rehab their way east to Lawrence. The day I saw them interchange with CSX they recieved nine cars.

Re: CSX Grain, Phosphate, & Ethanol South of Cincy

What trains are left on the Corbin sub? Seems like CSX is trying to avoid Corbin or am I wrong?

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

Gotta be the U. P. and branches in Wisconsin. With the tunnel in Port Huron, the instant bypass around Chicago acquiring the "J" and getting the main line from Chicago to Superior Wi, CN has a huge advantage over everone else. Just have to trim some of the branches. I agree also that they could sell...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: July, 2020

Welded rail train departed Wyoming yard this morning wondering if it deposited any rail west of GRR or just passing thru.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: July, 2020

That ballast train with Herzog gons that was sitting @ Wells on Friday is in Wyoming yard. As for Q327, yesterday's power from 326 is sitting at the west end of the yard. I can only think it's crew availability.

Re: Saugatuck Hill coal train questions and speculation

On the subject of the hill, what's the status of the big MOW project in this area. I know they were working around New Richmond but haven't seen any updates.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

CSX’s 36,000 ton, 2.5 mile long N800 should be underway from Chicago soon. Too bad it’s so late in the evening. Crew expires at 01:45 ET Why do they expire and they haven’t left yet? It probably took awhile to put this monster together. At least it's good weather in case they break a knuckle or two...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

I see they are replacing the crossing at Shaffer Road in Kentwood plus new ballast east of there. Wondering what other MOW projects are going on around GRR ?

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

I'm not sure we will see a Q327 today. Went to Wyoming yard and all I see is yesterday's 326 in the yard. If 327 runs today it will be short unless MQT shows up with stuff.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: May, 2020

The Q327-30 land barge has CSX 843, 3321 as the mid train helper with 4035 & 2649 dead in tow behind the mid train helper. Chased this land barge past Hudsonville and this is one of the biggest land barges I've seen! Wondering if this is the new normal for 326/327?
