Please provide additional location details. Where is South Mount?

Thank you


South Mount is the south switch of the CTC controlled siding in Mount Clemens - 20 miles north of Detroit. M383 is now underway - apparently they clipped a propane truck somewhere near North Mount and didn't get stopped until well south of the GTW depot.

Thank you.
From the video on “Click on Detroit” it appears that the propane truck was parked parallel and (too) near the tracks to fill CN’s switch heater propane tank.

MoW, a few of your posts indicate that loaded box cars are in the local (533?) consist. Do you know what is being loaded at the warehouse? Or am I reading your posts incorrectly?

I have no idea, other than that the vast majority of cars coming out are Union Pacific 60' high cubes with some stamped "automotive parts loading only". I believe that Metro is also still moving some aluminum in and out in RBOX cars. The CN crews have mentioned that the business is Chrysler/FCA - but I don't know for sure. I'll try to bend some ears next time I talk to them. At any rate, the place is quite busy and being switched almost every day now. They just left with a whole mess of UP cars for Detroit.

Thank you MoW. It seems the warehouse might be receiving loads and shipping out loads too. I'll look forward to your future reports :) .
