LansingRailfan! Do you (or anyone) know where this train is now (around 3 p.m. June 23rd)? :?: :!: :?: Will this make it to Port Huron tonight? When is it expected? Gosh, this has to be one of the last new Via® Siemens® sets now!!!! :shock:
It definitely will not make it to Port Huron tonight. They tend to take a few days. Probably Tuesday evening or Wednesday in the morning depending on how long crew changes take. That’s just my guess from the past few VIA sets we’ve seen
Man! Hopefully this time myself or my friend Roger (with my lent 35mm Canon® camera) can capture a new Via® Siemens® set being delivered!!!! :shock:
It's at Markham Yard rn. UP 6446 - P27691 - lately they've been taking the \UP power off in Battle Creek

EB M302 has CN 3023 the EJ&E heritage unit leading it. It's in Battle Creek and the crew goes OD shortly.

There was trackwork on the single track main between Marcellus and Penn today that held up a lot of trains.

Following EB P364 out of Battle Creek tonight will be M302, M394, E280 and Z148 with Q122 later around 02:00

E251 is holding at Potterville X491 from Sarnia is behind it. M397 and M301 following X491.

It should be pretty busy tonight in Lansing.

CN put some cars on the ground in Matteson, Illinois.

The train was using the connector between the EJE and IC lines when it derailed.
