CN Train Location Updates August 2020

Unread post by KC8RBK »

Eb manifest by 205 at 0004 with 1 cn in the lead and one in the middle. Dispatcher is giving out a 529A for mp215.41. Does anyone know where I could find the text of what a 529a or b? I have an idea but I'd like to see what it means officially.

573, CN Painted 6223 is at South Yard with 5 Lumber Loads.
CN painted could mean GTW, IC, WC, BCOL, BLE, or EJE.

Its GTW 6223, formerly DTI 223. EMD GP38-2.
Not with 6223. This is the only CN Painted engine with #6223.

A more accurate example would be #4621 with two different engines, one using reporting marks GTW and the other BCOL, and both CN Painted.

529a is a crossing activation failure. 529b is a false activation.

A483 through Mt. Clemens @ 10:49. CN 5645 & 5666 with 74 cars. Mostly chemical tank cars and hoppers. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s another 483 later today.
