It's a public thorofare. I'd ask what their problem was...and if they get upset then I'd leave but not without asking why.[/quote]
Every time they've said "someone called because you look suspicious." I dont see how, there's trucks that park there all the time. Also to make the post a bit relevant I heard Q329 passing burton at about 3:30, sounded like he was going pretty slow

This was that "Grain Train!!!!" I was waiting at the Rouge River crossing near 6 Mile/Northville! I heard them on the scanner─but "Stupidly" went to go check signals instead of waiting! :shock: I missed the photograph by only about 1 minute after waiting a couple hours!!!! :shock: However, light was getting dim when it came through! Does anyone know if CSX will still operate these grain trains or coal trains after
Lake State Railway® starts operations at the end of the month? :?: Will LSRC run every train or just some? I want to document the CSX trains before they are gone from this line!!!!

I saw what sure looked like a D700 EB this evening at 21:14hrs at Zeeland with CSXT 6545 and a dozen cars: 2 coils from Sawyer, 4 hi side gons from Hartford, and 3 boxcars+3 tanks from Holland. Strange time and strange day for them to be running...did they die over the weekend somewhere?
