:D :D OH YEAH I KNOW THIS CABOOSE!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It was used on the "East Side Local" from 1995 until 2010! When they "Combined" that train with the local to Mt. Clemens in 2007, you'd see this caboose there too!!!! It also was used on locals to Moterm Yard, Ferndale! By the way, that yard has the nice new entrance off 8 Mile Road!!!! It looks like this yard is getting the "Makeover" we thought!!!! :wink: Here's the "Thread" about CN/UP "Inspection Train" in May: http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=34992


GTW 79197 was taken down to Toledo October 2011! I saw it in Flat Rock before it was taken there! I later saw it "Stored" in Lang Yard, Toledo in 2013 and 2014! I guess it just came from there! Where could it be going? Why was it Stored" so long in Lang Yard? Gosh I hope it will stay around!!!!

Here's a picture (Canon® 35mm S.L.R.) I took of GTW "Center Cupola Caboose" #79197 in Ferndale, 4-15-2010: Image

L503 has NS 9170 and UP 2217 for power. Last I saw of it, it was stopped on the Chicago Wye in Durand at 6:20pm. It apparently had a separated air hose. I'm guessing it's probably on it's way west by now.

I photographed this train in Fraser! It had BCOL C44-9W #4651 with 13 loaded "Well Car" sets! It crossed Masonic Road at 3:44 p.m. It was nice to see this unit in BC Rail colors! It still has the original "Bell" on top (not 'Electronic') and all four "Ditch Lights!!!!" :mrgreen:

CN 3000 west with an autorack train through East Lansing at 21:43. They are stopping at Cedar, so I assume a westbound is imminent.

Edit

Or there could be another westbound passing them.

Posted by James Deeds on the CN Flint and Holly Subs Facebook group just now.

"397,322 are running mt.clemens and holly subs today between Tappan and Durand account track work at Emmett"

IIRC, 322 is also westbound despite the even number symbol.
