Unread post by GP30M4216 »

10:55hrs - Q326 rolling by on the Bangor Cam - CSXT 872 & 495 leading, with 94 mixed and about 71 platforms (long count). Somebody's getting some chilly snacks - there were 4 reefers in today's train and at least 4 in yesterday's as well.

Surprised there's no talk of the SD60s heading G010 out of GR this morning at 1000. Should be at grand ledge now
It’s not whether you win or lose, but rather how many pages you add to the rulebook

I'd talk about them but I could not tell you the difference between any kids of locomotive aside from those little switch engines. :)

The G010 out of GRP heading east was going to Lansing to pick up cars for Webberville to spot. Evidently there is a goodly amount in the yard there for Webberville. Yesterday, D708 spend most of the day sorting cars in the yard. They never left to come east until 20:00, came direct to Howell to put 66 cars in the Howell pass for GLC (who are here currently to pick them up) and then went right back to Lansing.

Q38529 that arrived in GRP at 07:00 went west by Howell at 04:25 with CSX 5373+7860 with 146 cars.

There was talk, in the chat room at least:
(09:33:25) SD80MAC: G010 should be leaving GR EB pretty soon Z
(09:33:36) SD80MAC: sounds like they’ll have some cars for Lansing with them
(09:56:50) ~Z~: another g010 type train? nice
(10:23:41) SD80MAC: G010 approaching Fox

Medium Advance Approach showing at the West end of SL for an eastbound.
Waiting for confirmation still, but it sounds like D708 might be close to Peaker.

Medium Advance approach? At South Lyon? Do you mean medium approach? (Red-Yellow-Yellow)

Looks like Q384 is meeting something at Elmdale. Either that or there is a track light stuck on or an issue with the ATCS.

Whatever was on the pass at Elmdale last night is still there this morning (unless it is a glitch).

Also heard a train pass through about 8:15 am this morning while I was standing out waiting for the bus with the kids.

I noticed it between 1630 and 2100 last night. I'm gonna go through my logs today and see how exactly that track light showed up at Elmdale.

Looks like we have an EC1 between seymour and EE Lake Odessa. It's also including the siding at elmdale as well as the main. So I guess stay tuned for more info?

10:48 edit
Occupancy at Elmdale is a track light. Maintainer is in the house looking at it.

That looks like a Medium Advance Approach for the Seaboard signal rules. The Plymouth sub from Lake Odessa to Plymouth is C&O signal rules. There is no medium advance approach in the C&O rule book.
