UP 1988 (Katy Heritage Unit) Heading For CN To Detroit

Unread post by gridejq »

UP 1988 (Katy Heritage Unit) is/was leading UP AKSGFR 04 (Kansas City-Griffith/CN, IN). Train is currently by Pence, IL at 1731 CST but it less then 45 minutes out of Griffith. Train consists of 77 empty racks (after setting out 5 empties at Villa Grove, IL) for the Detroit and will probably become a E250 or whatever else they feel like symboling it. The unit will probably return on a E251 but power has been floating all around into Toledo and into Port Huron/Sarnia.

Caught 396 at Trowbridge a while ago. For a brief second, while the train was approaching, I thought that 8023 was 1988.
Guess I should have hung around longer. :(

L45661 is heading to Pontiac w/52x8 they recrewed at Fenton. They will be yarding the train at Pontiac Yd. and the power returns to Flint for servicing and will probably head out on E271 in the early morning or mid-morning so heads up...

Nice shots, GLC392. None of mine were worth posting :(

I went by Pontiac at ~7:45am and didn't see it from my usual vantage points. The service area was pretty busy, though.
