Hey Jason, I like your Charlotte CN Railfan Livestream.

With this, I can see what is going on around you and in Durand to see what might be coming my way on the Holly Sub too.

Thanks.

Thanks David, I'm glad people are enjoying it. Originally I just set it up for me so I can enjoy home since I'm gone so much but its turned into a great way to share something I love with others who share my interest. A fair amount of animal lovers have show up too which is why I changed the name.

Jason / Others,

Question - I also really like your ATCS display as well. I just heard the dispatcher talk to 514 coming out of Flint (this is our intermodal train from Moterm to Flint and return), and now looking at your ATCS display, the route is now green from the Flint sub to the Holly Sub, which is very cool!

My question is, how can I get ATCS displayed on my computer here at home?

Thanks.

David Lang

Jason / Others:

Dispatcher just said he has a 591 coming North as he was talking to another train, I think in Durand!! He also mentioned 397 has not left Pt. Huron yet - this was as of about 10 minutes ago.

Anyway, 591 is a new symbol to me (maybe an extra 391?) so I will see what it is and I will report when he's by me.

Northbound CN train 591 with the CN 3875, CN ????, 53 cars, by Linden at 9:10am!!! This is a mixed freight.

(I assume 591 is an extra section of 391, but not sure).

EDIT: By the detector at 59.9 Gaines at 9:14pm with 224 Axles.

Looking at the ATCS provided by Jason in Charlotte on his CN Railfan Live Webcam, we have a Southbound for the Holly Sub too, so 591, per 591 scanner chatter, is going into the South Siding (somewhere around Gaines) to meet the Southbound on the Holly Sub.

Not sure Dispatcher38.

The ATCS that is shown on the Charlotte Railfan Live webcam does not show further East than Flint and I don't see any Eastbound coming into Durand at this moment.

Atcs doesnt reflect anything east of east flint because there are no volunteers out there to host a server. There's a light just came up for something headed east from durand. Kinda looks like something pulled out of the durand yard down the holly and is following it now. Has anyone heard a 765 working this morning? I also see a route lined through Lansing but no train so it's either for that train going around the ph wye or something is in the dead spot around shaftsburg
