If it was 5609/5748 and 79197, they must have hightailed it out of there, as they were reported through Charlotte WB at around 14:00. There are a couple of test trains working the Michigan division currently - maybe it was the WC/AC caboose version at Avery today?

Well I hope they stay around for a while longer! These are cool trains!!!! Now, are those the same CN engines with
GTW 79197 caboose as were on the train with the "Blue" Test car recently?

Yes - same power. They are specially equipped with cameras on the short hoods so people in the test cars/cabooses can see the signal aspects ahead.

L533N by Mount Clemens depot at 22:42. IC 1005/CN 2136 - light engines. Sounds like x533N that ConrailDetroit mentioned will follow with a substantial train. M384 and M385 both running late tonight, so the MTC should be getting pretty busy in the wee hours.

OK, what are they doing differently with the
"PTC Caboose" #79197 than the "Blue" Test car? Does anyone know how much longer these trains will be around? :?:
I want to see the cabooses and will be in Durand New Year's Eve weekend! I wonder if they will be out working then!

Does anyone know what's going on in Vicksburg tonight? Sounds like a number of supervisors out with a train and the crossing look blocked on maps.

Just picked up off the radio there is a derailment down there. Sounds like maybe m1 is the effected track.
