D90229, CSX 5422 + 3328 with 153 cars, by Howell at 19:10. Not quite sure where this train is going. With a D902 name, should be Flint, but there were just as many Ohio cars in this train as there could have been for Flint.

Just heard the dispatcher acknowledge D902-29, and there is now a northbound lined out of Middle River, on ATCS. Will head out and attempt a visual sighting.

20:30 UPDATE: Just cleared Middle River.

My son is trying to set up an ATCS monitor on his computer. Having trouble finding the correct file for the Plymouth Sub on CSX. I see other people monitoring this line so I'm assuming that ATCS for this line is functional. He likes to ride his bike over to Elmdale if he thinks he can catch a train. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
