Between Osborn and Van Loon, there should be directional intermediate signals near 173rd Street. It would be interesting to know if new signals are up in that area too.
The intermediates at 173rd are active for the right hand track. Left hand intermediates are up but turned

Last I checked all signals are up but bagged between Indy and Van Loon. So are IHB signals at Osborn

NS is pushing these notices out pretty far.


Sunday, 06-04-2018
Changes at CP Hohman and CP State Line

Rule 261 will be in effect for CP Indy to CP Burnham

New signals at Hohman and State Line for both NS mains east and west.

New intermediates at 502.6

Electric lock at 504.7 on M1

So this means complete 261 operation from Van Loon all the way into the BRC at 75th street.

Thanks for the updates. I suspect that all signal work will have to be coordinated with IHB/CSX, so perhaps these dates are based on when IHB/CSX is ready. I am hoping that NS will get full data as part of PTC preparation, which would be very helpful for the inevitably conversion to satellite for IHB/CSX.

Thanks - presumably the heads for the opposite direction are still turned.

From the IHB DOB for the changes at Osborn. The crossover on NS is no longer shown, but the removal is not mentioned.

75509210150202 is now online with 5 switches, so presumably this has to be Osborn.

Last google earth scan has it gone. Well the old panels are sitting along the ROW where it was anyway.

There was a posting on the IHB group that there are no new CSX signals at State Line, so there might not be any impact on NS as far as ATCS goes (yet anyway).

CSX State Line is pretty modern already. Since the machine installed replaced the tower in 2000. It has current spec signals on the CSX side and only needs the PTC add on. Changes are all NS side changes there.

Thanks. IHB is working on track changes between Hohman and Gibson, so perhaps only NS to be done for now .

The original post showed Sunday 6/4, but 6/4 Is Monday. Which is it supposed to be?
