The WB B25 had about 25-30 cars last night, led by an SD40-2. I'm going to try and keep an eye on the starts, but they may have been running from Wayne the last couple times I've heard/ seen them.

Maybe this thread should be moved to the Train Location Updates section.

B25 has been running East by CP 28 between 2am and 2:30am for the last two weeks. Very consistent. Also they have been rating 6 axel power, including wide cabs. Normals 10-20 cars EB with a decent variety. I believe they are running 5 days a week, seems to be Sunday-Thursday starts (10:30pm in JXN). They would be back west around 4 hours after clearing CP28 between 5:30-6:00 am ahead of Amtrak 351.

Back west CP28 at 6:30am this morning. Seems like 4 hours is about the time they spend East of CP28 most days

Power is currently a pair of SD70M's. They have still been consistent 2-2:30 EB by CP28 and then 6:00-6:45 WB by CP 28. Normally more cars going west than coming east. Tonight was lite power EB. Most mornings they have 6-9 cars EB then 12-30 WB. They have hide wide cabs for the last week or so.
