The CP power stayed on the Ann Arbor and the CSX power went north. The CP power was used for the regular SB interchange freight that evening.
Ahh ok. Thanks!

Re: Rare day on the Ann Arbor

Yesterday was a very rare day on the Ann Arbor Railroad. All morning Facebook was tracking a unit potash train with CP power running up to GLC. I chased that train form Milan to Ann Arbor then headed home. At 6pm word was another unit train was headed up with a pair of CSX units for power. So on th...

Re: CN puts Wisconsin-Michigan-Ontario lines up for sale

The line in Ontario that I could see spun off would be the line to Thunder Bay. Other than that I dont know if there is the line to North Bay. I dont see any other lines that stand out. One question is the short segment they show in Windsor. Would they divest this? What customers do they serve in W...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: May, 2020

Looking at the wiki, I just now noticed that 150/151 and 131/132 are no longer listed. Were they abolished or something? If so, I can't recall coming across info on that, so I must have terrible memory or am really out of the loop.

Lexington, KY Railcam

Got a new live camera of NS in Lexington, Kentucky at the Berkshire Trains store. About 30 trains a day according to an answer to my question about the 24 hour train count on the "Kentucky Railfanning" Facebook group.

No problem! It was a really fun day. It had been quite a while since I took an afternoon to go rail fanning. Mostly just nabbing one or two trains thanks to heads ups.

Some CN Action around Durand 2/23/20

I just had to get out and enjoy the "heat wave" today. Ended up getting 5 trains with about 3 1/2 hours. I went into Durand and immediately found an eastbound coming to a stop at Byron Road east of town. Figuring a westbound was on the way, I pulled over and waited. It only took about 5 minutes unti...

Re: CN Updates - February 2020

No 514 that I saw this evening from Flint. I presume the CN shutdown/blockade has stopped the containers from Eastern Canada from making it to Flint. I saw on the news what looked like a CN train that hit a car in Rose Township by Holly, MI on the Holly around 6 pm. I wonder if that was 251 that we...

Re: CN Updates - January 2020

Ok, so now that's the second time I have read about A482 on the Mt. Clemens sub and I have to ask. What is this train? Does M382 still run? Also...heard the dispatcher talking to train 491 this morning. What train is this and where does he run? (I think there was a 491 that ran on the Holly Sub rec...

Re: Michigan Short Line Updates: December 2019

A bit too late for the northbound, but this could be relevant for the southbound return (at least power-wise, I'm guessing), so FWIW: A northbound LSRC was crossing Evans Road at Newark (between Grand Blanc and Holly) at 12:12pm.
