HESR Thumb Operations

I was wondering what the operations are currently like around Bad Axe? IIRC, several years ago I heard that the operations west of town to Saginaw are every weekday and completely nocturnal, is that still the case? Also, how often do they run north to Kinde and south to Croswell? Is there any sort o...

LSRC at Clio 8-1-21

On my way home from a trip to the Thumb today, going over the I-75 overpass I saw southbound headlights in Birch Run on the Lake State line. Getting off at the next exit (Clio) I moved over to the Farrand Road crossing just north of town to catch it at 8:25pm:

What I’m guessing is 514 is heading east out of Durand at 9:43pm after letting Amtrak pass them. CN 5261 and BNSF 8180 for power.

Re: Michigan Severe Weather

Apparently there was a radar indicated tornado west of Mt Pleasant about 20+ minutes ago. Not on the ground anymore according to Reed Timmer on Facebook.

E280 at mill meeting a WB that just hit the dd at 219.
What's the power?
I just checked the Durand camera archive, and it went south through Durand at 8:00pm. Single UP engine leading, too far to see number.

Z127 and an FRA Train 6-10-21

Saw a freshly posted heads up on Facebook that LSRC 127 was on it's way south out of Flint, so I quickly made my way to the southern-most crossing on Buckhorn Lake Road (near Rose Center) to wait for it. After 20 minutes or so, it showed up at 1:26pm: UqnrP6E6JiE While waiting for 127, I checked FB ...

Re: LSRC Meet! 6-4-21

Nice videos -- thanks for posting! Longest distance between passing sidings is Newark to Clyde. Often put northbounds in hole at Newark and told them "you're there for the parade" as they waited for 3 or 4 southbounds to pass. 'Twas better after we got siding at Grand Blanc and southbounds didn't h...

LSRC Meet! 6-4-21

I saw a heads up on Facebook that an empty coal train was on it's way south from Flint, so I went to intercept it at Newark (a few miles south of Grand Blanc). I was quite happy to immediately find the train slowing to a stop on the main to meet a northbound, who's headlight was already visible a fe...
