Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

Eastbound G714 on it's way thru Brighton, calling the EE at 20:42.
No visual and lots of static. IIRC there should be a second (I guess V train) in Plymouth still right? Maybe this crew will take it west tonight?

G714 east calling clear for CH 43 at 20:46.

Re: Plymouth Sub Signal Update Thread

Sorry for not getting around to a reply until now, thanks everyone for the information!

Here's something I've not seen until tonight, the middle aspect on the EAS at WE Brighton seems to have burnt out.
Just thought I'd share, I'll bet it's fixed if I go back out there when I wake up.

D706-04 by Howell at 09:50 with 163 cars. 5409+327 on the head end. Next report by amessmann.
D706-04 thru the EE of Brighton at 10:10 with the aforementioned power. I counted 169 but I'm pretty sure I got thrown off half way thru the train.

Looking back at the video, it is indeed 163.

D705, or something, is lined west as of 00:39. WAS EE Brighton is displaying a clear aspect. Currently going thru Brighton at 03:35. No visual. A note about timetables, I bought access to one from 2008 and downloaded it as a PDF, I'm happy to share if anyone wants it. It's for the Chicago Division. ...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

Time for Amessmann to make a run to Lucy Road. Now more than enough time. Evidently, CSX 578 was left at Peaker for work because it did not come back west with 708. I was about to ask as I had never seen Peaker receive a locomotive or anything else. They must've left it on the east end of the train...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

Neat information about the DD tests, thanks for sharing!

Approach Signal at EAS Howell as of 14:20. Probably for D708, we'll have to see if that new unit is indeed 578.

D708 thru Howell at 14:38. 8400, 4037, and 578 leading 21 cars. Clear Ann Pere at 14:40.

I went thru the archives and the location in quotes is what it sounded like:

We are going to stop at "Full de hara".
Sounds to me like Ogihara which is an industry in Fowlerville.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - May 2021

Last time I checked, you don't get holiday pay on locals or road trains. Only yard jobs. Well that’s rough. Do they give anything extra for working a holiday at all? Nope. It's just another day on the railroad! What keeps me from being an engineer. I hear dispatchers make good money though, definit...

Sounds like something blowing thru town right now, westbound, maybe the empty grain train that came from Toledo? Too loud to be GLC. 17:56.
