darn...I wish they would have come later. Sunny day today and I was planning on coming over that way.

Just heard a gevo horn in Grandville, but I'm not sure of the direction...and the online scanner isn't working.

JT - just heard Dispatch talking to D801 - and D802, so I would guess that D802 is going to head up this way...

D802 is at Hiawatha Drive outside the power plant - crew ran out of time, set the brakes, and hopped in the cab for a ride home.

Sounds like X500 is at Wells heading for Holland...

EDIT 4:46 PM: Decided to meet X50017 at East Saugatuck. Got the video camera ready, got ready to shoot with the still camera - nothing happened. I left my CF memory card at home in the computer from earlier! Nuts!!!
Followed them to Holland up to Lakewood Blvd. - CP engine 8850 pulling 6,010 feet of train.

Empties from the power plant just south past Riley Street - was busy with something so didn't get a chance to see the numbers - couldn't hear them over the scanner - they have a weak radio...
They'll be heading west. D80118.

tim's empties

Unread postby donnieland » Sun Nov 18, 2007 9:39 pm

tim d801 took the empties to wells - set them in the siding - then pushed
d802( iirc) with a 903 train up the hill to the plant - the 903 was at grand junction - sounds like both sets of motors and crews are going to the plant and being cabed back to wyoming
