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...

Amtrak P371-06 @ 08:19 westward reported by the DD mp CG91.9 w/ 16 axles & 308 ft. IDTX engine #4607 & 3 SuperLiners. Tom, did you hear someone give 371 a roll by? I had stepped away after that DD report but is there something in particular you're looking for that can be found in the scanner archiv...

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...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - April 2021

Most of the time, the grain train will be put on the rear of Z151, who will bring it to Newaygo. MQT will usually leave a Geep in Newaygo for the elevator crew to load the train with. When the train is loaded, Z151 will put it all together and bring it south. Did someone mention a geep in Newaygo f...

Hmm... d80109 was supposedly on duty, then got annulled this morning, so I dunno what's up with when you'll see the coal load go north.
Well that’s a bummer. At least there is still 326.
