Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

K862 is sitting at Ivanrest in Grandville. Don't know why they didn't proceed into Wyoming yard but likely will run thru the yard when it gets a new crew to head east. Was hoping to catch Q327-13 but I haven't herd from them.

Just drove thru Hudsonville on Chicago Drive and the siding is still full of stack platforms. Not sure if they came from Wyoming yard but the stack platforms didn't come out of Hudsonville.

Re: West Michigan RR Abandonment Petition Coming

The tracks are still present up to the town of Lawrence. Beyond Lawrence, the rail is torn out and the crossings paved over.

Re: CSX Grain, Phosphate, & Ethanol South of Cincy

Too bad. There was a lot of trains on that line until they started routing stuff around Queensgate. When CSX aquired the "Bee line" from Conrail that started the sequence of events to move traffic away from Queensgate.

Re: West Michigan RR Abandonment Petition Coming

WMI has now begun rehabing rail east of CR681. Still lots of tank cars. The plan is to rehab their way east to Lawrence. The day I saw them interchange with CSX they recieved nine cars.

What trains are left on the Corbin sub? Seems like CSX is trying to avoid Corbin or am I wrong?

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

Gotta be the U. P. and branches in Wisconsin. With the tunnel in Port Huron, the instant bypass around Chicago acquiring the "J" and getting the main line from Chicago to Superior Wi, CN has a huge advantage over everone else. Just have to trim some of the branches. I agree also that they could sell...
