CSX engine #9969 reporting from Hilltop mp CG90 @ 13:41 as "double O three". I don't know what that is. Now hearing it as being "W003", Geometry Train.

Q329 west at Lake Odessa 1:45pm, Y106 in the siding at Elmdale.
Correct Tom, W003 is indeed the geometry train, heading to Grand Rapids from Chicago.

CSX 9969 clear Dewent. Didn’t even know this was here since I hadn’t checked the feed in a while.

It appears that the Gyralight has been removed and regular ditchlights installed.

Illinois Central 1038. The IC's SD70s were the last new power order by the IC before the CN merger. CN has been cycling their SD70s through Peaker Services in Brighton a few at a time for about the last year or so, which is where 1038 came from.
