EB NS 880, coal loads for DTE-Monroe, thru Burns Harbor, IN with BNSF 9669, executive scheme mac, leading. These trains tend to sit in Swanton, OH for a day or two until they are needed.

NS unit grain train with two NS engines and one UP engine just passed the Elkhart camera heading up the tracks towards Kalamazoo at 9:12 am. There aren’t many NS trains using those tracks anymore, usually it’s the stone trains. This is the first unit grain train that I have noticed go towards Kalamazoo instead of staying on the main NS tracks to the east.

Those tracks to Kalamazoo are typically used only by the Grand Elk and the local NS trains now so seeing this unit grain train heading towards the Zoo piqued my interest.
