I have heard they run long ones!!!!
What CSX train was this?

An engine number or a car number goes a long way to figure out what train it would have been.

As far as I know they don't run daily freights from the Detroit area to GR. Not since 2010. Do you mean the daily freights to Flint? They got a few going between Detroit and Ohio as well, so there are quite a few trains to pick from.

OK, I did not get the engine numbers of this train! I just "Watched" it as it passed! OK, there isn't a long "Daily" train anymore from Detroit to GR? Is there a long one that just goes to Chicago passing through GR heading west? :?: Or could the "Long" train I'm thinking of between Toledo and Chicago (passing between Plymouth and Grand Rapids)? :?:
I am not thinking of the train to Flint! However, it was great to see this "Long" of a train....almost my "Longest!!!!"
─my longest was near Delta, Ohio, 5-6-2017....3 NS engines, 208 cars!!!! :shock:

What about this train? It may be the one I am thinking of (Thornapple River Rail Series® video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHM-j7_V9yk

Just had a one unit wonder grain empty by Howell going to Webberville on this, last day of he month. Only the third road train this month here at Howell on the Plymouth Sub. Grain loads coming back from the empties with the same power don't count, Extra's from Flint with D708s power don't count, and D708 never counts unless they have different power which only occurred four times in June. Have now seen a whopping 14 locomotives here in June and have not missed a train.

As of 23:10 an eastbound is around Joy in Michigan City.

P370 with AMTK 36 leading was eastbound through Stevensville at 21:04 ET. They met Q327 somewhere east of me. 327 not here yet.

Hmm, a baggage car? Maybe they're throwing the bikes in it since there isn't an NPCU... Idk.
