UP6374 leading an eastbound, which I think is Q640, approaching WE Jamestown at 4:08 PM. Only 12 cars.

I thought so too.  It's UP 6967.  I couldn't find anything online about it possibly having had a fire or other accident, but clearly something happened to it.

Since CSX removed IU Tower, Have they raised the Track Speed through Downtown Indy. I was at the Convention Center Yesterday Working and was where I could See the Railroad and it seemed that they were moving quicker through Town.

Just an observation: I was on my home from work and caught a couple of trains at Girls School Road east of Avon about 11:25 a.m. today (Monday). A loaded coal train was headed east. Couldn't make out markings on any of the cars. Two lead units with a mid-train dpu. Just after the leaders got across the crossing, a westbound autorack came by. Had a dpu at the end, 3209. Just wondering if anyone had symbols on either one or both of these.

N319 was the coal bucket and Q217 was the racks.
The gates are going down and the people are starting to frown.

17 down, 3 to go.

Caught the Northbound Cardinal this morning at 6 am Departing Union Station with Amtrak 90 Leading the 7 car train. It was Nice seeing it for once. Sad that our Governor Cut the Hoosier State that some Counties needed.

Came south on I-65 thru downtown Indy about 9:20 PM tonight and saw what appeared to be a passenger train stopped at the west end of the B&O, on the bridge. At least 3 coaches, lit-up inside. It actually appeared to be on the Pine runner, but I wasn't sure. Anyone know what it was?

There are a couple of RailWorx hi-rail trucks parked south of MP 4. I just heard the W001 crew tell the dispatcher they will be stopping there to pick up a few people.

EDIT: Stopped at MP4 just before 10:00.

Departed MP4 at 10:15 a.m.
