Re: CSX Train Location Updates - Nov. 2022

Loud loud horns at beck road currently on the Plymouth sub. Sounds like an eastbound. Can hear it all the way from work. Also a westbound grain train has been tied for nearly a day in the siding waiting for a new crew. Saw it coming into work today at around 5. Grain seems to be pretty hot this week...

I'm not allowed to say who bought it or where it's going. But I can assure you it's getting preserved somewhere. Wait and see for more details.

Re: Amtrak long distance trains, what should I expect?

Avoid the Zepyhr unless you wanna be 4 plus hours late to your destination! The empire builder ride to Montana is the best Amtrak route in the country! Having done it last summer it truly is the best. Both directions we were on time. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Though the southwest chief isn't b...

Re: BNSF Hi line In Montana

I had a very relaxing trip out there. Thanks for all the info. I took Amtrak from Wisconsin and spent most of the week at the izaak Walton Inn hotel watching trains in the Essex area. I’d do it again in a heartbeat. What a trip that was. Thanks for all of the info. Hope to be back out there again so...

Re: Chicagoland

I know it’s late and all. But I did visit two locations. Chicago heights yes it was a risk but it was well worth it. I ended up seeing UP 2002 leading a train, a CSX mac duo on a freight, a UP SD70M leading a intermodal out of yard center and saw multiple UP and CN trains there. Risky area but well ...

Re: I rode Amtrak and I have a lot to say...

I don’t care as long as I make my Amtrak and we leave on time. What’s not acceptable is how unreliable the chargers are. It’s not uncommon to have PTC issues about 2-3 times a week on the Michigan services causing trains to be late. Also dealing with the NS Chicago line is no picnic either. With NS ...
