This is the ship that had a boxcar full of gold bullion stolen from the confederacy at the end of the Civil War from down south that was brought up to Michigan. Its also said that it was one of the five cars pushed off the ship. The guy that stole it was Benjamin Pritchard from Allegan Michigan and...

Re: September Shortlines Updates

It is quite odd, had a majority of fly ash gons with a few tanks and 2bays. I bet Q327 will pick them up tomorrow. Perhaps they are considering going back to a nocturnal schedule. This way, these cars will be on Q327 tomorrow. If they come down Monday, they won't go until Tuesday's Q327. Typically,...

Re: September Shortlines Updates

GRE - WB Leonard at 2:15 with 15 CHs. Signals not working, train flagged thru the intersection. Doesn't appear like the signals to the north/west are working either. IIRC, they're all under one circuit, so because the Plainfield/Leonard signals were cut due to the work, the other ones to the east w...

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

D708 (don’t know who else it could be...) Eastbound @ Williamston 0930. Couldn’t see the single locomotive through the trees, but he had a long string on empty container tables at the end. Would these be the cars out of Trowbridge siding possibly? That would likely be D706, it’s first run was suppo...

https://youtu.be/Pq1fkLqBqm8 Marquette Rail was Northbound in Comstock Park just after noon today. There was two empty center beam flats to be picked up at Standard Lumber. They only had two boxcars out of Grand Rapids today. I heard them Southbound just after 10:00 this morning. Anyone notice the ...

Re: Grand Rapids Question

Weekends are the least busy, Friday evening has a CSX train, and Sunday evening. Usually nothing in between those movements unless MQT runs an extra.

Re: Crazy Topic - G&W in Michigan

I know this will never happen (for many reasons), but why not have CPMY take over the GRE? The GRE would make for a much more scenic run (especially from Ada to Lowell) and give them 3 more customers. At the very least, if an operator like WMI takes over, CPMY should look into having occasional exc...

Really wondering what the situation was at Fuller yard for that train. Did CSX or GDLK drop them off in one big cut over the Alpine bridge and had GRE just pick them up and go?
