Well, I guess no one here spotted D&H GP38-2 #7304!!!! I saw at my house on the computer around 10:30 a.m. on "Heritage Units" (by 'Michigan Train Chaser') that DH 7304 passed Romulus at 9:30 a.m. on CP train 140!!!! I was soon driven down near the tracks off Springwells! Train was going already (I thought this may be the one because of CP cars)!!!! Quickly, we got ahead of the train and parked near the Michigan Central Station!!!! Train soon!!!! It had the Delaware and Hudson® engine!!!!! It was led by a CP Widecab GE, UP Widecab GE and D&H 7304!!!!! My first time seeing one going!!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Is there a regular time that NS works the Rawsonville Spur? And where is Arkona Siding? Thanks!

I think the Arkona Siding is along the NS Detroit District (Wabash Line) from Arkona Rd northeast to near Goodling Rd. Not far northeast of Milan. Not sure about the Rawsonville Spur.

Arkona is NE of Milan. B70 used to or might still set the autoracks from the AA in there for 121 to pick up. B71 has been entering the Rawsonville spur between 8:30 and 9:30pm on the nights they work it.
