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.

Turned south at Durand at 21:07. Read on Facebook this was an intermodal extra Q198 for Moterm.

North-westbound got on the Flint Sub in Durand at 10:15am. Two CN's for power, and 88 cars of mixed freight, including a decent amount of short covered hoppers, I assume for sand. I'm guessing L591?

What I'm guessing was L514 was using the High Wye in Durand getting on the Holly Sub at 3:32pm. From what I could see on the cam, it looked like it's just light power heading south - 2 CN's.

Also, FWIW, a southbound 280 (also with 2 CN engines for power) went through Durand at 1:57pm.

Hello Fellow Railfans.

Northbound turning Westbound CN 371 coming at you on the Holly - was clear Linden at 5:40pm, so should be getting close to Durand as I type this.
