CSX thru traffic via Grand Rapids

Unread post by Ben Higdon »

I happened across what was apparently the regular eastbound road train out of Grand Rapids near South Lyon this morning about 8am (Q328?) - aprox 125 cars. There was a short cut of 8-10 loaded auto racks. Is this overhead traffic, or imports destined for Detroit for unloading?

Thanks

Q326/Q327 and Q328/Q329 handle a mix of Grand Rapids area traffic and run through traffic. I've seen loaded autoracks coming and going from Detroit recently.
