Z127 and an FRA Train 6-10-21

Saw a freshly posted heads up on Facebook that LSRC 127 was on it's way south out of Flint, so I quickly made my way to the southern-most crossing on Buckhorn Lake Road (near Rose Center) to wait for it. After 20 minutes or so, it showed up at 1:26pm: UqnrP6E6JiE While waiting for 127, I checked FB ...

Re: LSRC Meet! 6-4-21

Nice videos -- thanks for posting! Longest distance between passing sidings is Newark to Clyde. Often put northbounds in hole at Newark and told them "you're there for the parade" as they waited for 3 or 4 southbounds to pass. 'Twas better after we got siding at Grand Blanc and southbounds didn't h...

LSRC Meet! 6-4-21

I saw a heads up on Facebook that an empty coal train was on it's way south from Flint, so I went to intercept it at Newark (a few miles south of Grand Blanc). I was quite happy to immediately find the train slowing to a stop on the main to meet a northbound, who's headlight was already visible a fe...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - April 2021

Caught a southbound grain train in Holly at 1:18pm. 2 CSX engines leading (didn’t get numbers). Even though it’s on LSRC, I figured it would be relevant since it’ll be on CSX eventually.

Also, Trailer Train has a repair facility north of Pontiac in Waterford that gets both flat cars and vehicle racks. If you want to see a maze of tracks squeezed into a cramped site check it out on Google Satellite. I don't know how they move 90' cars in there. What are auto racks doing in Pontiac y...
