MMRR, yeah that's the ticket. Orange things. I need a better map of the city to follow along better. Wait...the Consumers Energy outage maps do a good job...some of the abandoned lines still show up.
It's A New Dawn!

Southbound LSRC Z127 is in the siding at Newark (south of Grand Blanc) as of 12:06pm. Apparently it’s waiting for a northbound.

Not sure, don’t know how long it takes for them to get there once they get going. I do hear the northbound in Holly right now (I’m at Lahring Road north of town), so the meets gonna occur really soon.

Okay nice, I have never caught LSRC before so I might give it a shot when they get to wixom.

I would think you’d have plenty of time if you left now. Northbound is still in Holly.

After some further digging, does LSRC still use 161.310?

No worries. I’ve heard several times it’s generally 40mph. Not sure if they go slower in Milford or not.

Kind of a late report but one of those sand trains off cn was spotted stopped east of Norwalk, oh on W&LE at 2230 last night. 3rd party report from family. They couldn't see the power or direction of travel.
