CN Updates September 2020

Unread post by KC8RBK »

track department around 205, between fairview and Otto rd working on something. They're a little too far away for me to see what but I believe there's a joint or a qeld pretty close to where they are 0840

Jason I believe they are replacing M-79 crossing this week. That’s why it’s been pretty dead during the day. Last week they did M-50.

Speaking of "monotonous," I don't enjoy the "Manifests" on the "Mt. Clemens Sub." much anymore! At least the "Locals" always use better power! Now, the "Flint Sub." has better locos!!!! :wink:

BCOL C40-8M 4617, "Blue" IC C40-8W #2457 are being used out of "Bristol Yard (Torrey)!" They are not going to "Scrap" as some others headed to Canada yesterday!!!!

The ones on the way for "Scrapping" were: CN C40-8W #2189, "Blue" IC C40-8W #2455 and CN "Zebra Cowl" C40-8M #2428!!!! :cry: I gotta get out to Flint soon! :wink:

Whatever train this is had empty frame cars towards the head end, a long cut of black tanks, a bunch of soy meal from the ithaca bean plant on great lakes and some nokl 3 Bay hoppers. Last car was a plastic granule car. I dont know which train is working durand in the mornings right now. Maybe 501?

501 and 500 work Durand. 451 and 450 work it on Sundays only. 451 and 450 were working it seven days a week during Covid.

But I’m just speculating...
