Hello everyone

I was wondering if anyone would be able to give a list of all the trains currently running on the Scottslawn Secondary. I do know there is the H708 local that switches everyday with the occasional Sunday, but am unsure of what other trains run on the line and about what times they run.
Thanks for any information!

Q310/311 are back running through here up to Ridgeway as Avon-Columbus-Russell, D756 as a Crestline-Columbus Parsons Turn but not sure if it runs on the Burt Line or if it takes the Indy Sub at Galion and heads to Ridgeway and takes the connection there to Columbus. Q146/Q147

I’ve been trying to keep track of all the trains currently running on the Scottslawn and figured I’d share what I’ve found over the past couple months here.

Scheduled trains:
I believe Q310 is an early bird and heads south to parsons before the sun rises.
There’s a Y103 that switches industries down by buckeye and van yards in the morning and into the early afternoon.
H708 is into Marysville to switch normally at 7:00am and done by 11:00am and heading back to parsons.
H711 comes from the north off the Mt. Victory sub I believe from Marion and heads to switch Honda or any interchange traffic at Ridgeway from the Kenton local.
Q311 leaves parsons no earlier than 1:00pm and is usually through Marysville by 3:00pm and has to wait on Q203 going into Honda
Q203 normally gets into Honda around 3:15-3:30pm
Q231 then heads into Honda around 5:00pm and leaves shortly thereafter sometime around 7:00pm
The last two of the day are Q146 and Q147. Q147 leaves van yard around 7:00pm every night and meets Q146 most nights between van yard and Ridgeway during the 7:00 hour.
The extra trains I’ve seen and heard traverse the line are coal trains E895 and E313. The grain trains are V628, V991, and G022.
Hope this helps anyone wondering the Scottslawn schedule and train count!

Thanks for the info, I did hear Honda would be shutting down and figured it would only be a matter of time before the trains stopped running into there. I guess there’s 3 or 4 trains that run into there and switch on a daily basis but I’ve only heard Q203 and Q231.

Q246 would be another. Leaves in the wee hours of the morning for the IHB at Chicago.
