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.
Try looking for the a file called CSX-WM or CSX GRMI server. I'm fairly new to ATCS myself so I'm not the one to ask for tech support. With some help from Justin in the chat room on this website I was able to get it going. I could email you the files if you can't find them. Just send me a private message. Also the gentlemen who developed the layout and server for the line through Elmdale is a member of this site. He may see this and chime in as well.

Saw D902 heading east out of GR around 3 pm with 3 units and a long train, looked like mostly tanks for Port Huron. Probably east of Lansing by now.

I heard that as I was leaving work. I'm off of East Paris and 44th. I couldn't tell which way they were going, so I didn't pursue.

I just happened to make my way down to Hamilton today and was wondering if anyone out there knows when one might be able to expect a train in area. There were at least 8 grain cars at Hamilton Feed so that's an indicator that CSX is definitely still bringing stuff down there. However, the tracks look pretty trashy so it makes me think there isn't much going on.

P370-31 is currently departing St. Joseph. Sounds like AMTK 51 leading.
