Two SB's on the Holly early this morning. One at 4 am (very short) and one at 4:50 am (very long). Didn't get up to see what they were.


Hi Manistique,

How are you doing sir? Hope you are well.

Most likely, those would have been 116 and 402, unless 116 came earlier and one of the SB's was either a Sand Train or an Empty Autorack train.

I like reading your and others 515 reports as I have never seen this train before. What kind of cars are on these trains and what is the typical car counts?

And the BCR unit was really throwing the smoke as it went by here a few minutes later, and not just from the exhaust stack but from around it. Two blue units today as 2460 is an ex-jointly owned Conrail/CN locomotive in Conrail blue still.
