Use a milepost or road name/crossing along the Holly.

Super long NB 515 passing MP 22.5 with a long cut of empty well cars on the end and a lot of empty centerbeams on the headend and a lot of 50' CN boxcars in the middle. It must be getting close to outlawing as it went SB by this morning at 9:30 am.

Re: CN Updates April 2020

Two SB's past MP 22.5, formerly Belt Junction, this morning. One around 4 am that felt like another sand train from the house shaking. Then one out before Amtrak around 5:30 am, maybe 116 as reported earlier at Holly.

NB 515 with a long train was notch 8 up the Hill at about 40 mph when it passed MP 22.5 at 7:45 pm, the turbo of the SD40-2 screaming and the GP-38-2 chanting like mad.

Local Train 515 past MP 22.5 at 7:49 am with 26 cars, mostly loaded centerbeams and some cars for the DCON interchange with 5416 as power again today. You know everything is going to be OK as long as 515 is running.

That stack train is the one that went by MP 22.5 awhile ago. An extra that I thought was 514.
