On my way home from the MRC meeting in Dearborn tonight I noticed a eastbound CSX freight train crossing the bridge over Telegraph Road in Redford Township at about 8:25pm tonight. What train symbol was that? I was northbound on Telegraph Road(US-24).

A locomotive number or car number would go a long way into figuring out which train that was.

It was D736 I think that was crossed the bridge over Telegraph Road while I was drove northbound on Telegraph Road (US-24) in Redford Township while I was on my way home from the MRC meeting in Dearborn last night. That train was headed to Rougemere Yard, Dearborn.

Amtrak has been in service disruption just west of Tryon Rd, CG 121.6 in Michigan City all morning... Q326 is stuck west.

Edit - P37102 hit a car at Tryon Rd... fatal for the driver. All 198 passengers and 4 crew members are ok.
