Train symbol addition/ Abolishment news

Unread postby Toppysager » Tue Dec 12, 2017 5:40 pm

Here's a new thread idea. In the wake of ever changing times at CSX, it can be difficult to track what's still running, and whats been axed by EHH mighty fist. So if anyone hears any news about newly added trains, reroutes, train merging, or abolishment of trains, post it here. The train symbol databases are also useful, but can be slow to update. Feel free to post NS, CN, and other class 1 updates as they occur, but I suspect CSX will be the focus.

Q047 recently added between Columbus TV and Bedford Park, IL. Appears to just be a peak season UPS train. Runs Tues-Sat from what I can tell, and departs TV around 2:00am.

Runs via the Toledo Branch to the B&O at Galatea

I do like ideas for new threads, but I don't particularly want duplicate information in the database here, as in the same symbol information here on the message board and on the wiki.
All members here have access to the wiki, so I'd suggest to just log into the wiki, and make the update, such as the one you are listing about CSX. Any symbol that is abolished gets a strikethrough the name.
Here's some links to the various Train Symbol pages:
CSX: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/CSX_Train_Symbols
NS: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/NS_Train_Symbols
CN: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/CN_Train_Symbols
CP: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/CP_Train_Symbols
There's also ones for a lot of the shortlines and regionals in the midwest area.
I particularly like this page to see what edits have been done recently so you can see what has been added or dropped: http://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&days=30&from=&limit=500

I've never edited a wiki page before. Are there instructions for doing this?
