CR/PC Era 25W Sign

Re: CSX Train Location Updates August 2017

Sounds like long lead is only mailfunctioning the gate We assume you're talking about Plymouth, but it'd be nice if you let us know for sure. "Main St" is a common name, as is "Mill st". Sorry about that, forgot to put in the location there, yes, the long hood lead is tripping up the gates at Main ...

Re: Ann Arbor Passenger Cars

In this video by Michigan Central Lines, the passenger cars are at around the 30 second mark (in the background). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7SnaGonnvU&t=28s Those are private cars, the art ones were silver I think.

Re: Ann Arbor Passenger Cars

Not that I know of, a few weeks ago they had two Amtrak Dash-8s with some ballast cars there, but they have left by now. That's my last sighting, and only sighting except for a ballast maintainer. I think the passenger cars were taken out a few years ago.
