A Few Trains from Durand Yesterday

Unread postby atrainguy60 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 5:17 pm

I went out to Durand yesterday afternoon after seeing updates on 398 with the two DPU's (one of which being a dark blue and white BC Rail). It ended up being a slower day, but I still got four trains, although only three I saw the power of. The first was HESR which backed out of the yard and left town with about 36 cars, most of which were tank cars and covered hoppers that looked like we bound for Dow in Midland. Next up was my target train, 398:



After 398, another eastbound came through, with a trio of CN engines leading.



The last train of the day was GLC, heading south at about 5:30pm.



L502 mysteriously didn't show up at all, and when I left Durand between 6:30pm and 7:00pm, there was still no sign of him on the ATCS. Must've been extremely late or annulled.
Overall a pretty slow afternoon compared to the Thursday's and Friday's I visit on. Those usually turn in about 6 to 9 trains in about 3 to 4 hours. Didn't help that 451 isn't running. HOWEVER, it was still well worth the visit, with the DPU's (which I don't see often on my visits), the BC Rail, and the GLC, which is always nice to see.
