Re: CN Train Location Updates - January 2023

Thanks CRD. It seems like Nolan would have communicated that to CN but it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't. 5456 northbound in Pontiac Yard with a boxcar and long string of loaded centerbeams. It looks like the Warren Local. Why is it carrying loaded centerbeams northbound? Those centerbeams are ...

5456 northbound in Pontiac Yard with a boxcar and long string of loaded centerbeams. It looks like the Warren Local. Why is it carrying loaded centerbeams northbound? Those centerbeams are for the transload by 8 Mile which is south of here. Edit: Manistique posted at the same time I did so that answ...

Thank you for posting this.

I didn't see any engines from the MI lines on either lists or did I miss something?

Let's just blame AARR for me getting interested in what cars go to what industries, and what commodities are shipped in or out. :)
Thank you. This is one of my favorite parts of the hobby.

I also enjoy seeing what trains cars travel in from their origin to their destination.

Copy/paste off of Fb:

4215, 3925, 4049 (?) SB approaching Barton Drive 9:32 am. with not too many random cars. They brought a long CSX grain train up earlier.
Which railroad might this be?

Looks great Don! If I were you, I'd do a card order system for your layout, given how many industries you have.
Thank you for the suggestion. For now I can track everything in my head but as it grows the Card Order System is definitely in consideration.

Since November 2022, GLC has been using crew-specific symbols to ID trains. The classic OSTN/ONTN/CSTN/CNTN have been done away with by GLC.
Thank you LRF. I amended Wiki. As always comments, etc. are welcome.

Nice that you had an operating session already! I'd like to try operating your layout. I had a couple guys come operate mine for the first time about a week ago and things went pretty well. Looking forward to more updates. Thank you for your feedback. At this time, it is set up for one person to op...

Re: GLC RR

Occasionally there will be a day and night job out of Cadillac going in different directions. Another rule of thumb is that if a CNTN runs then there will not be an ONTN to Clare because the Cadillac crew won't run a CSTN on that day, instead the ONTN crew will usually run to Middleton or something ...

Re: Richmond, Romeo & Rochester (RR&R)

First operating session today. In around 2-2.5 hours accomplished 60-75% of a full session. I'd give the overall performance an 7 or 8 out of 10. - I still need to add feeder wires to reduce dead spots. I would estimate there are 15-20 dead spots. My Athearn engines stutter but pass through most of ...

You would think that EJIW would have built a track to their new facility, but I was told that they are at a wait-and-see period.
I thought they would build along the GLC ROW rather than a mile away :?

The feed mill received rail service back in the MIGN days (Biehls Feeds and later Ellsworth Farmer Exchange) but I don't know if they ever got anything from TSBY. However, TSBY delivered well drilling supplies to that same siding including drilling mud and pipe. Has that building in Mancelona that t...
