Just heard horns on the north side as I was loading the truck. Makes 3 out of the last 4 Saturdays they have worked up here.

I Really enjoy all these location reports, pics, vids.
I am modeling operations Cadillac and North and to see this much info on the operations is very valuable and enjoyable.

THANKS for you work!

Could that still be for Amerhart though? Seems in the past, they track only to Cadillac. and same double door cars that Amerhart usually gets.

Ah, a gondola for Beacon. And a center beam load in Cadillac for Amerhart (though they may be up here today).

So, Raildude's Dad, could this gondola be that DJJX that you tracked as being still on the NS and it just didn't update, of maybe Beacon has another one still on the NS headed up here? Not sure how quickly tracking is updated?

DJJX 30137 TOLEDO AIRLINE OH 2018-01-22 02:44

The trace get updated when the car passes the scanner or a crew inputs the pickup / delivery times

This is one I had traced before and saved. I'll add the other one to the list. It looks like Beacon has a small pool of cars
