Whatever the case, the Rougemere yard and the yard on Dix Ave in Melvindale are just about a mile apart. Drive or ride your bike between the two and I'm sure you'll find it. Off the computer with you and get railfaning; hop to, chop chop! :)

Q326 shows a few minutes later at 12:29. CSXT 863, CSXT 764. 288 axles, 3887 feet at 44.2 DD at 12:52.

N801-10 eastbound Approach Limited at Vine at 17:43. BNSF 5647 leading. 532 axles, 6957 feet at 91.9 DD. Clear Hilltop. Sounds like the Lafarge SAMUEL DE CHAMPLAIN tug is inbound in a few, might have to wait for the coal train.

Sounds like Monroe St at 60.7 will stay as a False/Partial Activation on the bulletin until Monday... Need parts for side flashers that faced the road parallel to the Amtrak Station, which were crushed by the truck today.

BNSF 5647, BNSF 9087. By Bangor at 18:56.
