West Michigan Train Location Update 3-21-08

No work on Friday so no early morning GRE update. On the way home tonight (Thursday) NS was dropping off 2 tanks and picking up 2. CSX had dropped off a mini unit train for King so I'm guessing they will work to Lowell on Friday.

From Amtrak1007:
X500 is by Seymour
Z1fiddy1 is northbound with GMTX 2652 The Spirit of Ludington leading, by Watson Street Yard

*note* The Friday night Z1fiddy1 will be the end of an era, so come one come all to support our favorite roller goalie.

If you take Amtrak1007's post, and combine it with muskegonrr's post: http://www.railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=7685
You get this:
Means it's woot woot's last night on MQT, so go out Friday night and watch MQT Z151 come south towards Grand Rapids.

End of an era? Roller goalie? Maybe I'm just having a blond moment...

The favorite conductor of the Mighty Marquette when he is not making his speedy treks south from Baldwin, is a famous skilled goalie of the Phantoms! <www.muskegonrr.com>.

X500 is heading towards Holland - the roads are a mess. I don't recommend chasing it tonight...
