Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

D705-12 departed Fowlerville west at 20:02. Has Lansing work of course. Trailing unit 5406 has died already. The 5406+5243 set was on D706 two days ago so the power as reported from Plymouth, wasn't that "fresh" And yep, 68 cars was what I counted to match sparrow24's axel count at Green Oak. The 2n...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

Something just went west through South Lyon at 3:34. I missed it by a minute. That was V713-08, 90 grain empty, yet to be determined where it is going. CSX 3373+145 on the head end. Now taking siding at Fowlerville, 1. due to track lights on the main, and 2. a track car has come across a "distresse...

Good new BL2, CSX901 & CSX982 went south on Q51112 this morning. There are 2grain trains sitting in Plymouth and D705 called for 14:30 today.
With my luck, D705 will return with the power from D706 this morning and both grain trains will go by in the middle of the night.

With nothing to pick up, GLC put 31 cars in the Howell pass from the east end by 19:00 Friday, for Monday's pick up. It was an Ann Pere turn too so they w...

D706 clear Trowbridge at 2:08 PM. Clear pair Brighton at 15:18, and thru CH 43 at 15:26. 5406 and 5143 leading.
That would be 5243 on the second unit. By Howell at 15:00 with 59 cars and a long string of empty lumber cars.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

D705-10 had 50 cars this morning in Howell at 03:40. 982 was leading, 901 was DPU after the 21st car. They only turned 982 in Detroit this morning because DPU 901 was also facing west. Thanks for the info on the late D706 Tom, plus the fact he has rare Chicago power on it.

D705-08 went west by Howell at 02:25 with only 14 cars. D708 on Monday had more than twice that many cars going both east and west, and they weren't the same cars. And yes, they turned the 901+982 set around again to keep 901 on the lead. D706-08 went east at 08:08 in slow speed with 5409+327 and on...
