CN 2846/CN 3142 lead M397 thru Charlotte at 4:45. Slow orders mean train took 8 min to clear. Columbus and Greenville fallen Flag boxcar in consist.
Columbus and Greenville is alive and well - or did you mean it was a car in pre G&W original CAGY scheme ?

Re: Disused spur in Utica

Technically, you can still be cited for trespassing, although the Conrail (NS) cops probably don't patrol it very often! My...

Re: Tower Automotive

I don't want to drag this too far away from mach69's original Tower post, but just a little tid-bit about the Petitpren switch a few feet to the south.

Re: Tower Automotive

Regarding Tower, I don't know if they were shipping in those 86' boxes, or receiving parts. Consumers deep-sixed their rail business many years before they finally folded.

Re: Tower Automotive

Rail service to Tower in Clinton Township was short lived. Not sure of what they shipped from that location, but lots of 86' high cubes went in and out and gons loaded with scrap left as well. Service ended in the 1990's after only a few years of the plant being opened. Four switches within a few hu...

Re: CN Train Location Updates - May 2021

A very late M385 (from 5/23) through 15 Mile Rd. @ 14:15. CN 3086 & 3840 with 91 cars. All traffic on this train originated from Toronto (i.e. no frame flats or tank cars picked up in Sarnia usually).

Re: CN Train Location Updates - May 2021

M397 will be another monster train today with 3 up front and a mid train DPU like Saturday’s 397. There’s an x275 called in PH. All empty racks for Flint. It’s quiet in town with no CN action atm and CSX’s D705/706 already having run thru. That x275 is being diverted to Flat Rock FYI for all the Mt...

M383 through Richmond @ 14:22. CN 2930, 3803, CSX 2757, 2799, & 2561 with 128 cars.
Those three are DIT from their operation in Sarnia. GP 38-2s
It's a monthly occurrence - usually cycled down to Huntington (WV) for maintenance or heavier work.
