D902, CSX 3129+5380 eventually followed X801 east to Brighton last night, where they picked up the Brighton storage bare tables, and took them back west wherever they went do. Now, they can start ripping out the Brighton siding before someone gets the bright idea to store more cars there and fills it back up again. Last time it was cleared out, it only lasted a week before it was filled back up again. Dispatcher told D902, they had they alone were allowed in there, a one time only move, as once they leave, the roadmaster told him the siding was out of service again not to be used.


D902 head end was sitting on the Patterson Ave bridge at Fox Siding this afternoon.

The CSX brain trust is at work. Kill the GR- Toledo trains. Then try locals GR- Toledo. Seemed to work well at least for my Standard cars. Harrison shows up, close Walbridge in favor of Willard. The next Standard car gets to Willard and then heads south to Georgia. Got it cut off in Cinnci to come back. Then route everything thru Chicago. Worked ok. Close Barr and guess what, the Standard empties are going to guess where? Walbridge.

If only I could receive millions in compensation to screw things up. I'd settle for a few hundred thousand :roll:

Walbridge wasn't closed, Stanley was. Actually they just flipped them in reality, Stanley now handles the auto traffic that Walbridge did, and Walbridge handles all of the general freight.

Walbridge wasn't closed Stanley was but then you say it wasn't closed :wink: My point was no cars thru Toledo, instead go to Willard, Chicago to GR and reverse.

Full circle - empties back thru Toledo for a car that's going back to Thunder Bay. That traffic has been CN to Chicago to GR Prior to eliminating the GR - Toledo lane, the TB cars went to Toronto and back west. As I've said several times, no matter what you think about EHH, CN knows how to run trains - steady and little dwell time in the yards.

Sounds like there's an X787-13 around Holland...getting talked by the red signal in Holland, switches in hand-throw.

I should've clarified Tom, the hump at Stanley was closed. Operations there are maybe 25% of what they used to be.

What I'm guessing is Q326-13 is east at the EE Livingston at 19:30 ET. CSXT 3343, CSXT 3199, and about 55 cars.
