The INRD more than likely hopes so. If the Truth was Known, They would like to get the 3806.

They had one to drop off (INRD engine) and one to pickup. Probably one in for wheel work if I had to guess.

Yesterday at Henryville: Northbound ballast shuttle from Speed. Sounded as they were to have a TW work between MP72 and 51.  Crossing at Hwy 160 is rebuilt with new CWR.

Getting ready to lay the new rail once the ballast is spread.

Any idea at what location they will start with rail installation? That ballast shuttle has spread at numerous locations in the last couple years, a drop in the bucket.  Ballast was still being delivered via truck where train is loaded. Thanks.

At Scottsburg we caught the 155-2378-2371-2376 At 228 Pm Southbound with 85 Loaded Covered Hopper Cars. At 348 Pm we Caught the 2004-3807-2001 Southbound at Scottsburg with  40 Freight Cars. The 3 Locomotives were Pulling Hard with those 40 Loads. CA is in the Columbus Yards with a Very Long Train to Continue to Avon. The Franklin Local is also setting in the Yards ready to Continue North as well. I think the 2375 is the Power on the Franklin Local.

RAILWORKS was lifting two long sticks of CWR through downtown Seymour yesterday heading northbound. My guess is the stick rail from Rockford south through Seymour will be coming out pretty soon.

Question.  Roughly how long does it take the contractor to install one mile of new welded rail?  Is the plan to take the full 7 years to install welded rail on the entire LIRC or are they trying to knock it out in 4 or 5 years?

The plan so far just looks to get a pretty good work window during the day and then still run the present trains. They still were able to get some welded rail and a few concrete culverts in north of Seymour.  A pattern of  ties then some undercutting, add ballast, regulate,  crossing rebuilds, then CWR connecting the dots. Still plenty of this line hasn't had any of this done yet. So at this pace it would take  awhile, but what's the rush? It's seems like it has served CSX's purpose at least for the first 3 of the 7.

The Speed ballast shuttle was loaded Friday morning(using two trackhoes now), including the new LIRC ballast cars.

Late last night had a CSX K883 with CP 87xx leading. I think this is a potash train going to Jeffersonville?

LIRC 154 south has TW from MP 75 to North Jeff (this would be the CJ).

LIRC 1803 has a work between MP 70 and 74.  Good to hear the GP11s (or at least one of them) still out doing revenue work.

LIRC 1803 now has TW from MP 73 to 93.  Dispatcher mentioned that they would need to know about an additional slow order around MP 65 later on.
