Re: Detroit and Mackinaw #8

Re: Abandoned spur in Utica

Rumor has it the bridge just north of M-59 that is no longer structurally sound and needs to be rebuilt. This would be a great line for a small tourist operation and/or short line. I bet they could drum up some transload business in the industrial area between 22 and 23 mile. Although some brush cu...

Re: CN Train Location Updates - May 2021

Quick update: Track one just changed to green going to Royal oak which I’ve never seen before with another clear signal. Odd since track one is supposed to be reserved for Amtrak going the other way.

Full greens on Track 2 at Troy MI anyone know what this might be? I’d assume it’s either 271 or L513 running lite.

Re: Bluewater NRHS cars ON THE MOVE!!!

Photo evidence has shown that the cars have made it to CN Symmington Classification Yard in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I’m 99% sure this is right.

Keep an eye on Wolverine #351 guys, they may end up on there, anytime NRHS cars are moved they're on Amtrak....
Not exactly, cars are being moved Via CN according to the documents on the side to Sarnia what happens then I have no clue.

Re: Bluewater NRHS cars ON THE MOVE!!!

Wasn't the SAL car owned by the gentleman in Mt. Pleasant? SRI passed on it but I thought Lake State had bought it?

Re: Bluewater NRHS cars ON THE MOVE!!!
