Racks are out of Toyota Princeton, Indiana plant for Canada. Pipe goes to Alto. Pusher jobs were cut at West Olive. Only one crew left to push Q326 up the hill. Coal trains will double themselves to East Saugatuck. Should be an interesting winter. Bwahahaha.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.

Thanks Doc...

E800-01 just had to get talked by the stop signal at WE Livingston. 91.9 DD gave a “no defects, hotbox detector malfunction.” Not the usual size, 492 axles, 6459 feet.

If idiots could fly, CSX would be an airline.

At least, that's what this decision would suggest!

Lol... "we just smoked a deer back there" near Vine. 20 axles, 377 feet at 91.9 DD, hot box detector malfunction. Sounds like they're finding a good spot to stop and inspect the train.

E80004 west at Bangor at 9:52am. Q32604 is near Coloma and sounds like N80001 is out at New Buffalo as of 11:30am.
After Tlout's power gets done bringing the train to west olive, they are coming back south lite to likely help Q326 up the hill. Maybe N800 too, who knows :)
Q326 east at Bangor 11:52am, CSXT 5379 and UP 6594 for power.

Y106 is still sitting there. Lord knows there's nothing to occupy your time anywhere in Elmdale. Boredom ensues!

Looks like Y106 is between Elmdale and Fox now, probably working Alto, and then lined into the siding at Fox.
N80001 east at Bangor at 1:25pm, BNSF 6339 and BNSF 9066 leading.
