Re: Shortline Updates May, 2021

Sounds like Grand Elk is already southbound out of GR, possibly blowing for 44th right now.

Edit. Correction. They were heading north earlier. Now heading south crossing 54th St (visual from the Home Depot parking lot).

Can't say that ever happened to me even once. Always found them to be pretty funny, and sometimes even hilarious.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - May 2021

P371 through New Richmond at 7:03am. The fog is so thick that I didn’t hear the train until about 30 seconds before crossing the bridge. Never heard horns at 136th or 55th.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - May 2021

I found in the archives the CSX Bridge Tender giving Amtrak a roll by, which they usually do when a train's last car has cleared the St Joseph Bridge (it has a 15 mph speed limit for all trains). Once the DD91.9 report is heard, we usually don't hear much beyond that. Broadcastify has a Premium mem...

Re: Where Is It?

Is that Muskegon, with US 31 passing under the bridge? Where be it? Sorry AARR, it's not a former spur into an industrial area, but at least it's not interurban this time. Well, i guess part of it turned into a spur further ahead in the photo, but still :) That's Muskegon looking east along the old...

Re: Where Is It?

While most of that is correct JT, the interurban line in the pic does not run between GR and Kalamazoo - the freight railroad does. Interurban runs more east/west. Yeah, I just realized that as the only possibility would be Monteith Junction south of Martin and the landscape there doesn't fit this....

Re: Where Is It?

It is somewhere here in MI. Southeast Michigan? One clue is the bike, which is Z's. He lives in Byron Center along the Grand Elk line, so I'm guessing it's in riding distance of his house. The old interurban ROW in his photo runs on a pretty straight line between GR and Kzoo,assuming that is the in...
