From the Amtrak Website, it looks like only one roundtrip between Pontiac/Detroit/Chicago now: Trains 351 and 352.

Re: CN Updates March 2020─GECX 2029!!!!

The 12 GECX ET44AC's are now being repainted by Quality Rail Service in Madison, Illinois. They will be CN 3121-3132.

Some have already been repainted. I saw a photo of CN 3130 on a coal train in Alberta this week.


OK, I think the whole time was "GECX 2029!!!!" There is no "GECX 2909" in this model! Alright, now GTW 6401 answered the question about "CN" owning "GECX 2029!!!!"

A482 through New Haven at 12:16. CN 3202 & GECX 2029 with 109 cars, including some empty frame flats.

OK, looks like ET44AC #2909 is still owned by GECX!!!! Now, why would The Diesel Shop site show that it is owned by "CN" now? :?

I photographed southbound train 383(?) that cleared Masonic Road, Fraser, 1:49 p.m. It had 118 cars (including lots of loaded "Scrap Gondolas") led by CN ET44AC #3202 and "Blue" ET44AC #2909!!!! Now, did CN purchase these GE "Demonstrator" units? :?: If so, I couldn't see any "CN" markings!!!!!!!! On "The Diesel Shop" website it says CN number "3121" is "Ex-GE Demonstrators GECX 2029!!!!" I just saw number "2029!!!!" :shock: That "Contradicts" what the site shows!!!! :roll: It also shows CN "3122-3132" are "Ex-GE Demonstrators GECX 2033-2043!!!!" I have not seen any of these since they were "Supposedly" bought by CN (until today...3-22)!!!!


Are you talking about 2029 or 2909? Different numbers, different backgrounds.

Hey Guys,

Northbound 251 by Linden at 3:43pm with CN 5761, 2 other CN units, 32 cars. Mostly autoracks. Understandably shorter than normal.

Man that new Hotbox detector at 56.2 is about a mile away from the house as the crow flies and comes in GREAT on the scanner!
