Having been shut up in the cave for several days because of the lousy weather I decided even through it was cloudy I would treat myself to some time track side. I went to Muncie Indiana. The CSX Indianapolis Line remains very slow while the NS New Castle District is Hit & Miss. I was there three and a half hours and saw nine trains with only one being a Local. I have heard the CSX newer ES44AC’s (700-900) are showing up now and then but I failed to see any.
(No photos, I cannot post on this board) :(

The Indy line is a late night/early morning railroad. Only the Q108, Q348, and Q358 may showup in the mornings east bound. Q358 *should* be through there by 0700 most mornings. Q359 and Q349 would be your only WB trains during the day. Q132 may run during the day, depending on when the UP gets it to Salem.

Other than that, Q263, Q310, Q311, Q364, Q377, Q111, Q131, Q218, Q219 are all night time trains.
