Re: CSX Train Location Updates - June 2021

The tanks for Heinz have pure grain alcohol. Watched by the feds, who record movements, times and car seals.(AKA the revenoors)
What placard numbers do you see on the car then look that up on google.

Re: Not something you see everyday.

Turkeys are an everyday thing. They would let you get up close as long as you were on the engine. Deers were less then skittish about engines too but didn't like humans on foot. The osprey have a couple nests about the shop area. It's a jungle out THERE!

Re: South Shore freight ops

We used to interchange a whole train from Chessie to that Ex NKP line at Belfast. All the autos from Wixom for the most part along with a couple of Ford parts cars for KC. Fast forward to the N&W westward. Always a hot move.

Re: My first Railfanning Mistake.

You should have been around when engineers forgot to dim their lights at meets. One was bad at that and also when coming into the yard. I would go to the road channel and just say, "Are you lost?" and the light would immediatly go dim. Engineer was a good guy too and we loved to rib him about it. An...

Re: Shortline Train Location Updates - April 2021

MQT looks to have left some of the Newaygo cars at Sparta Siding. When we went thru New Way Go they were still loading a string of cars down in the plant and a crew was up on the loaded hoppers putting tags on the loading troughs. Hardy pond is down about 12 to 15 feet. Lots of stuff exposed and isl...

Re: LSRC Buick City Update

I will be keeping my leased F150 in September. The used price is well over what I owe on it. Gee, I could purchase the vehicle and turn around and sell it for more then what I owe by $5K or so. But I won't.

Allegedly the Detroit train goes to a pool job with three crews in the pool, 7 days a week, starting on or about April 24th. Start time is a show up at 11AM at Wyoming Yard and 11 AM at Rougemere to return. Works at Lansing both ways.

Re: Train Bulletin Board

And the ONLY bulletin board I ever saw (other then at work or in a station) was a PRR one up at a Scottville antique dealer but...NOT FOR SALE. Came out of the Big Rapids depot IIRC. NOT FOR SALE. Most of the RR stuff he had, including from the C&O ferry's was NOT FOR SALE.

Re: Jobs at csx at Grand Rapids Mi

Furloughed people have a choice to hit the nearest crew base or take unemployment. RR unemployment doesn't pay near what state does so if you want to continue on the gravy train you have to go to the nearest terminal you can hold. If you are furloughed at Lensing that would be GR. If you can't hold ...

MMRR, yeah that's the ticket. Orange things. I need a better map of the city to follow along better. Wait...the Consumers Energy outage maps do a good job...some of the abandoned lines still show up.
