Short Line Updates August 2020

Unread post by GP30M4216 »

08:40 it looked like a MQT crew was knocking the handbrakes off (or locking them down?) the northbound train north of Grant at the Nelson’s Farm crossing with 3 SD40-2s and probably 40-50 cars of mixed freight.

By 11:15, a train was switching out cars in Baldwin. 3389 and 2043 were staged on the Saginaw mainline just east of the west wye switch while the other two units backed at least part of the train onto the old NW wye lead track.

AARR - pretty cool eh? I guess they cleared out the Reid/QD spur 2 weeks ago and pulled the stored coal cars over to Saginaw Yard in preparation for this move.

Any idea where they could be moving the Reid pickup?
