Anything on D706?
Hello Micah, I've been going thru the scanner archives & haven't found anything for D706 - I am re-checking them again. This morning's Q327 had the 2 engines that D706 should have had. So, today, I am assuming D706-10 will be running with the CSXT engines #5406 + #5243 that would have been on Q327.
Heard D706-10 @ 08:02 calling Rouge Tower, appears he's just now starting to get himself together inside Grand Rapids.

D705-10 had 50 cars this morning in Howell at 03:40. 982 was leading, 901 was DPU after the 21st car. They only turned 982 in Detroit this morning because DPU 901 was also facing west. Thanks for the info on the late D706 Tom, plus the fact he has rare Chicago power on it.
