Holly diamond traffic?

Unread post by GP30M4216 »

I will be in Holly for part of this next week for a work conference. I won’t have a lot of time for trainwatching but definitely want to take a few minutes to capture the depot in its original environment before it moves and the signals and diamond before they are some day, one day reconfigured. And if a train happens to be going by at the same time, we’ll, how nice! :lol:

Is anyone able to summarize the current traffic situation? I searched back through for Holly posts but most of what I found were references to the Holly CN Sub, not necessarily to Holly itself. And I know the Holly south of Pontiac looks different than to the north.

On the LSRC side, one manifest each way to and from Plymouth, and there’s a local turn from Flint, too, right?

On the CN side, at least a pair of manifests, a pair of containers, but are there more? Does any coal run on the CN side right now? Is Holly siding still used for meets?

Thanks!

I’ll be sure to share photos I get and will try to post train report updates when I can!
