Re: CSX Locomotive Roster News, Updates & Information Thread

Would like to know how many standard cab SD-50's & SD-60's are still active? Also saw dash 9 #40 still in original paint on Q326-05. First saw this unit in Winchester Kentucky right after it came from GE hauling coal on the Corbin division.

Re: MOW on CSX Grand Rapids area

MOW is back at MP 6 in Grandville working on both switches. Hopefully, no more malfunctions at the Wilson Ave. crossing. The flashers and gates sometimes malfunctioned with no train around.

Re: MOW on CSX Grand Rapids area

The slow order at MP 6 in Grandville has been lifted for now. New ties were installed at the WE switch were double track goes to single near Wilson Ave. I've observed the Sperry Rail truck all over the area this week so I'm sure more MOW is coming.
