A buddy of mine was at Oakley Yard this morning said a few cars derailed most were empty. Getting a crane to get them back on the line

Here is another picture that just was sent. Midland Sub best get you yard back in shape! Didn't you just have most of the rails redone over there in the last five years?

The flat car in the picture looks like it carries auto frames. Is that the new business on one of the Springfield branches

I stopped by on the way home tonight there was a large crane there putting the car back on the track. Kind of interesting to watch. Looks like there is going to be some track repair there as the car dragged a good 75 yards down the track before the stop was made. Looks like three cars went off the track. Correct there are auto frames on that car.

Yes for the Navistar Plant here in Springfield. Located on the Urbana Sub near Glen Echo.

Thanks guys. There was speculation the frames might arrive to IORY in Flat Rock by CN. Do you know if that's the routing?

I would say no on the frames coming from the CN. I have never seen them southbound on the line.

The frames are coming from the Metalsa Plant in Elizabethtown Kentucky. So its a safe bet that CSX is bringing those into Cincy for an I&O connection. Not sure about the north end of the I&0
