Anything pertaining to railfanning in Indiana.
Checking the US CP Holiday Train Schedule, it appears it will be making a ferry move through Northern Indiana on Friday via Butler, the train is scheduled to be in Windsor, Ontario on Thursday night, then in Gurnee, Illinois on Saturday. Just wondering if anyone has any info on the move from past years? I have yet to see the train in person and am thinking of driving up from Ohio, but if its just a ferry move and there are no scheduled stops, will they have the lights on regardless? Thanks!
I heard a horn show in Elkhart around 2am this morning and wonder if it was this train rolling through. The tone of the horn was a different from most trains and the crew seemed to like to make a lot of noise (not just the usual crossing sounds). I believe they threw in a "shave an a haircut".
It passed thru Elkhart around 2:30 ish. Then got hung up by a long container freight with a crew change at 426 and finally passed us on US933 by the yards (424) at 3:15 AM. But it was worth the wait.
