Sightings Around Indianapolis
« on: November 03, 2013, 11:51:21 AM »
We'll be in Indianapolis today. Will INRD, LIRC, or CSX be sending many interesting things through today?

Curfew out at Ridgeway for a big signal replacement project.  I think Q218 was going to run, but Q310, Q358, Q354 (doesn't run Sundays anyway), and Q364 were annulled today/tonight.  A few G trains running, but CSX is annulling trains to keep them out of the signal work at Ridgeway.

Just a quick question? When is Q358 leaving Avon lately? Haven't seen them at all in the afternoons.
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

16 down, 4 to go.

It's hard telling this far in advance. Sit by the train tracks and see what goes by. Otherwise you will know if someone posts on the forum.

The afternoon departures around Q360 were just a curfew thing.  Its now due out at 2200, usually on duty at 1930.  Which puts it squarely in the dark out of Avon now.  Works out better for Avon, not trying to set 3 eastbound trains with departures within a couple hours of each other.  Q360 due out 1400, Q358 due out 1430, and then Q218 due out at 1700.  Also had to try and get J721 (due out 1300 on weekdays), Q595 (1600), and Q239 in the departure yard.

I'll keep checking back. I know a few people on this board that know this far in advance about trains on the NS New Castle District so I just thought I'd see if anyone along the Indy Line knew that quickly. No biggie.

Btw, have there still been some KCS Belles going through Indy lately?

Only trains those would be on are the Q106/Q107. Mainly night trains.

Considering that most of the trains through Indy originate or terminate at Avon, not as much 'heads up' on moves that will be coming at you in 12 hrs.  Unless it something originating someplace else and destined for Indy.  Plus, power at Avon isn't sitting still very long right now, so something that comes in right now, could be gone in 4 hrs anyway.

About the most variety you'll see in Avon right now is a couple BNSF units.  Q348 had them this morning.  The rest of it is a sea of CSX power, with UP junk sprinkled in for good measure.

Thanks for all the info! It really does help even if no one really knows what's good and what's not. It just helps me to better understand the area.

Btw does anyone know approximately how long it takes for Q361 to get to Connersville from Hamilton? Heritageunits.com says that CSX 5000 is leading it and left hamilton at 3:06 am. I know they have some crazy grades to get through out there so I just thought I'd ask.

Yes, heritageunits.com can often be trouble. It's helpful at times but sometimes people post false reports. I guess this is another one.

I guess it's good that I'm part of such a great website with awesome members who can confirm or shoot down these kind of things. ;D

That would put Q360 out before it, correct?

Q360 is due out at 1400. Going via Sidney today with a monster train. Q358 annulled because of colt's game, lack of cars, and lack of power.

As info, CSXT 5000 arrived Montgomery AL at 0131 this morning on a L282.
