CSX GRE MQT TRain Location Update 3-11-08

Unread post by Raildudes dad »

Crew on duty - inbound grain train off CSX for King at the GRE (looks like CSX even yarded it for them :) ) Nothing from NS - outbound still there. Amtrak looks like the usual.

Post from KenB: This afternoon spotted CSXT 327 wb in Plymouth as I was on I-275. Looks like he had a big block of coal on head end. Probley for East Lansing.

Someone over on another forum seems to think CSX had a derailment near the swing bridge in St. Joseph MI...i'll keep an eye on Amtrak to see if it gets through.

From the scanner, Q326-11 cleared Plymouth diamond about 19:20. From the car wash, N956-11 cleared 7 Mile Rd. in Northville at 20:15. BNSF 6115 & 9707. Sorry, no car count. I heard 'em on the scanner say "I just made the turn at Plymouth. Do you have a ride home lined up for us?" So I assumed they stopped for a crew change and I had time to wash my truck. WRONG! As soon as I started spraying, I saw the headlights...

Amtrak P37011 clear Kirk, so that derailment in St Joe(if there was one) didn't affect Amtrak.

Dok, does that mean that D700 is now running south of Holland on M/W/F still or are they doing something different. Thanks for the update, good to hear of more business over that-a-way.
