CSX Q326-19 through Porter, IN at 11:17. Could not ID the leader's number clearly but it sounded like a 3000 Series GEVO.

I was working in the yard and heard that horn getting louder and louder as it approached from the west and wondered which train it was. Kind of late, no?

At 20:35, WB mixed freight, either D717 or 737, turned north at Plymouth. CSX 5321 + about 90 cars.
At 20:40, NB mixed freight, perhaps D702, turned east at Plymouth. CSX 837 + 746 + 4010 + 5310 + about 110 cars. Dang near impossible to count cars of two trains going in opposite directions at different speeds! :lol:
Unfortunately lately I must speculate on the train #s. Scanner is of little help. CSX trains going to / from Lake State rarely call signals, and I will often hear transmissions of 717 and 737 communicating with each other, but not with locational info. Other CSX freights seemingly call out signals less and less nowadays as well.
