Re: CN Updates January 2021

Speak of the devil. Another 274 ran early to Pontiac this morning. I’ll be opening up a Corrected Stand somewhere along the flint sub. This 274 was stacks and racks akin to a Q116. Not sure what they’re doing W these symbols right now but they might be changing. I read more about this on FB today. ...

Re: CN Updates January 2021

I heard the dispatcher tell 251 they were waiting for 514 and 274 before departing. The train was intermodal and and 25 empty autoracks. I assume the guys working know the symbols so I went with it. 251 had CN 2257, BCOL 4611 and BCOL 4602. The GTW 5933 was setout at Pontiac also. 274 went to Sarni...

SB D735 just cleared 7 Mile Rd. BNSF 5984+9309+167 cars. He actually called out D736. Perhaps the SB version of 735 is now 736 again as it was a few years ago.
Yes I have heard the SB use D736 for a month or two. These trains now sometimes work Chevy Yard, as does D714. Not sure why.

Re: CN Train Location Updates - November 2020

U756 at Emmons @ 11:05. CN 2420 3 of 3 I think you meant Emmett, MI on the Flint Sub. It may be somewhere down by Detroit. That sand train goes down the holly. Does anyone know where it ultimately goes? Emmons Rd is in Wyandotte. The 756 train goes to Toledo, then to Wheeling & Lake Erie I believe.

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

I saw a Q150 on Monday afternoon at Delray, heading to Livernois. All intermodal. Does this mean that Q150 and Q151 are back? If so, did they replace Q200/Q201? I'm also curious if Q508/Q509, Q567/Q568, and Q214/Q215 are all still regularly heading in and out of Rougemere?

Re: CN Train Location Updates - October 2020

EJE 676 just brought 3 hoppers on to the Lapeer siding. Currently running around cars near Mott Community College. 18:33. They are probably for Lapeer Industrial Railroad. There were a few cars to pick up right along the curve at the north end of the LIRR.

I don't know about this train, just that CSX uses Z symbols to identify other companies' trains when they run on CSX-dispatched lines.

Re: CN Updates July 2020

Well there is another X-train out there. CN 2683 is leading train X-401. This might have been the 451 that I posted about earlier as I was not sure if it was truly 451 or not. 401 is a number they either discontinued or changed since the virus and it became 451 I think. Don't know where this train ...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

NB engine set just turned east at Plymouth. CSX 5221 + 8839. UPDATE: they turned around and went back south with 5221 still leading. There was a CSX X253 that went north to Plymouth (from I don't know where) to turn around and grab an empty ballast train and take it south. This must have been the p...

Re: Quick I&O question.

When IORY is departing Flat Rock SB, I have been hearing them give a symbol of what sounds like I999 lately. Can anyone confirm? And does it have the same symbol going both north and south?
