CSXT 5500, the Spirit of Cincinnati, will be leading an eastbound into Avon Yard. The train is currently in Fillmore now.

I doubt itís the same one but the brc has had a tnmr 90mac sitting in their engine house tracks for a while.  I imagine this company bought these units from someone.  The up has a few sitting in proviso too.  I believe they are scrapping thereís though

UP should just be bringing them back to storage. I'd imagine they're a little confused on what to do with them. Brought about 50 of them out around Spring but that only lasted a few months before they started crapping out again and got pulled back.

Just heard on the radio V995 struck a semi truck at Green Street, QSC16.7. I believe that is in Brownsburg. No injuries reported to train crew.

Seems the driver parked (with the end of his trailer on the tracks) to ask for directions:

Thankfully no injuries.
