Run as the same train in both ways but can have different numbers at the end to identify which way theyre going(Intermodals have two different symbols):
I457-92 - Ends in even number so it is returning to its origin
I475-31 - Ends in odd number so it is going to South Kearney

K280 had some unusual power today as NS 2501 took 20 hoppers to Fostoria and interchanged them with CSX and brought back 15 hoppers to Columbus.
X001-82 was lead by NYCW 9999 and had 67 empty autoracks going north to Detroit.
E321-93 was lead by CSX 9303, NYCW 7156, NYCW 4242 with 78 loaded well cars that took the southwest wye at Nixon, OH for its trip to Chicago, IL.
490-27 went to New Orleans with NYCW 490, BNSF 9224, CP 8032, and NS 9907.
Q977-00 went east with NYCW 8930 and NYCW 2910.
About 10 more trains went up and down the Penn District but I only saw 5 today. Tomorrow NYCW will be hosting the 9/11 memorial train that will start in Chicago and end up in New York. From the station(a beautifuly preserved PRR station) passengers will get on a bus and see the World Trade Center Memorial. NYCW 911 will take 9 coaches and 2 dining cars east at 7:00 AM.
