Thank you for that info, I'll have to take a look at that with Google satellite images. Any idea what the tank cars carry that I see going there from time to ti...

Re: Reefer customers in W. Mich.

Hanson Logistics in Hartford (WMI), Michigan Natural in Wyoming (CSX), and Twin City Foods in Lake Odessa (CSX). WMI gets the UP/ARMN cars, MNS gets a mix of Cryotrans and JRSX leasers, and Twin Cities gets BNSF and Cryotrans.

Re: CSX Locomotive Roster News, Updates & Information Thread

All of the SD60s, SD60Ms and SD60Is were sold off in 2017/2018. They still have about a dozen SD50s, most of which are in storage.
