Re: CN Train Location Updates - October 2020

EJE 676 just brought 3 hoppers on to the Lapeer siding. Currently running around cars near Mott Community College. 18:33. They are probably for Lapeer Industrial Railroad. There were a few cars to pick up right along the curve at the north end of the LIRR.

Re: CN Updates September 2020

CN 8878 & 3176 going into Moterm. Possibly a long hood forward Intermodal going north later this afternoon...... Watching ATCS, something went south out of Moterm and is now lined north up the Mount Clemens Sub. Unless I wasn't paying close enough attention and something else completely different h...

Re: CSX Z-Train Identification

I don't know about this train, just that CSX uses Z symbols to identify other companies' trains when they run on CSX-dispatched lines.

Re: CN Updates July 2020

Well there is another X-train out there. CN 2683 is leading train X-401. This might have been the 451 that I posted about earlier as I was not sure if it was truly 451 or not. 401 is a number they either discontinued or changed since the virus and it became 451 I think. Don't know where this train ...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates: June, 2020.

NB engine set just turned east at Plymouth. CSX 5221 + 8839. UPDATE: they turned around and went back south with 5221 still leading. There was a CSX X253 that went north to Plymouth (from I don't know where) to turn around and grab an empty ballast train and take it south. This must have been the p...

Re: Quick I&O question.

When IORY is departing Flat Rock SB, I have been hearing them give a symbol of what sounds like I999 lately. Can anyone confirm? And does it have the same symbol going both north and south?

Has been arriving at Rougemere in the early overnight hours lately. - Transfer to NS to at Oakwood (usually T27, sometimes has a T41 symbol) and return trip to Windsor (T28 or T40). Usually ...

Re: CN Updates - February 2020

When I hear the evening Pontiac job on the scanner, it's been referenced as L513. I don't know how often they go as far as East Yard, but I've heard them going to work customers on the south end of the Holly Sub, such as Sterling and Metro. My understanding is that it's also 513's job to switch the ...

Re: Detroit Yards

The busiest yards would be Rougemere for CSX in Dearborn, Oakwood for NS in Melvindale, Flat Rock and Flint for CN, and River Rouge, Livernois, and North Yard for Conrail (first is in River Rouge, latter two in Detroit). Best bet for public viewing are the roads along the east side of CSX Rougemere....

While it's nice for those who live near the CSX and LSRC, trainwatchers on the CN and HESR miss seeing the coal trains. The long track in Durand yard where the coal trains parked, formerly the AA main, appeared to be full of auto racks recently. I've heard that CN is storing the autoracks there for...

Re: CN Updates - January 2020

According to the wiki, there is/was an M393 that runs daily between Toronto and West Chicago. Was that one abolished? I haven't heard of a 393 coming west across Michigan in maybe a few months or so? And when they did come last year, they tended to have an X393 symbol. But maybe there's a regular 3...
