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.

Can’t see it, but something is whistling on the Fremont sub right now, just north of Holland, presumably southbound.

​@12:48:56 (13:48:56 EDT actual time clock wrong) Q326 with CSX 5323 & CSX 5466, 6 autoracks, and 75 mixed freight cars Passed thru Pullman MP 49 same line

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