Thanks, ConrailDetroit. It's always nice to to find out the names of these trains and where they're from/headed. Maybe if I got one of those scanners I could figure out some of that info myself. :D

NB NS 8400 and 9906 (if I remember correctly) just pulled their train right up to Delray on the Detroit line, then backed up over the drawbridge back toward CP YD. A train with 3 NS engines did this yesterday evening also. Is this a common way to enter the Conrail River Rouge yard?

Wow! Just saw three young boys crawl under a tanker car CBTX 784374--with their bikes--of the above train while it was stopped at Pleasant St. Never seen that before. A whole new level of stupid! :!:

Stick around , you'll see a kinds of stupid ( Visger and Salliotte crossings are both hot spots for stupidity ! ). A few years back the RR 40 on their way to Lincoln yard killed a guy and his bicycle there. He climbed through their stopped train. Didn't workout for him.

NS 176. Leaves Oakwood around 4-7pm and drops cars at Conrail's eastside yards and terminates at Sterling. Engines return on the NS 171 which leaves Sterling around 2am. UP engines are common as 171 terminates on the UP in Salem.

Love being stuck between two trains at Delray: NB CN just cleared on Conrail tracks, meanwhile what is probably a CSX Intermodal is finally moving NB on to the Old Main after blocking Dearborn St for at least 20 minutes with the rear end stopped in the way of the road.
