Q32628 east Approach Limited, upgrade to clear at Vine at 12:28. CSXT 5323, CSXT 5466. Cool KCS 125 year anniversary autorack first car. First 6 autoracks all are connected in twos with just 2 axles between, so 18 axles there instead of 24. Train also has 7 CSXT cars w/ ties.

Please just post the correct time, nobody cares about the incorrect time and it just adds confusion as to which is the real one.
