Q688 is on the Louisville Secondary with UP-UP-KCS leaders. Z397 (National Starch switcher) was getting permission earlier to do some work with RSSX 1414.

CSX 9969 was found peaking out of union station facing east at 951 this morning.. not sure if it was geometry or OCS. The "support our troups" fuel tanker from jackson oil painted in an OD green camo scheme was pulling up next to the engine to give it fuel as i drove down south street.

He was going to Queensgate..  Geo train... But there was a Windmill train headed to IU, and Jacksonville dispatch made him wait until 30 mins past noon. When he was ready to move at around 9:30am.

This despite being a two car train. So ether the Jacksonville DS didn't want to bother shortening up the warrant for the windmill train to let him get to Julieta to make a good meet.
That or CSX has taken all the short sidings OOS....
If in doubt, Notch it out!

Does any One know what CSX is doing. Makes you wonder if they know what they are doing. Keep Wondering. Keeps You in "Suspense"

earlier in the morning i caught a csx gp40 shoving 4 empty lumber cars westbound on the b&o running LHF with a railbox, box car coupled to the front of the locomotive crossing emerson ave.

then about 5pm i caught a freight train running the crawfordsville at lynhurst. then it had a long string of double stacks after the DPU. any idea what train this is? was it the 688? should have knocked down davis at about 5pm.

Just caught Q361 (the westbound) on the St. Louis Line at Harding Street at 0930. It was a nice long train, with two units up front (CSXT 7004 leading) and a DPU mid-train.
