Thanks CSX_CO. I might be in Indy in the morning; I'll see if anything other than the usual single 4-axle is parked at Kid Glove.  I've seen a six-axle stationed there in the past however.  Just unusual for me to see that large a train, loaded or empty, on that line in many years.  As many times as I've been on Kentucky Ave over the past ten years I'm at least somewhat surprised I've not yet caught an ISRR move of any kind between Kid Glove and the interchange point with CSX.  Won't be in town long so will likely miss the storage move anyway.
I actually caught at least a couple unit potash trains (and two of tank cars) years back being switched in and out of the old (now torn out but delapidated even then) CO-OP at KY Ave and Raymond... but of course those were CSX trains that came down past Lily on different trackage) Just no luck ever catching the ISRR on their line.

ISRR SD40-2 #3388 & GP40-2 #4020 are up there to do the honors.
There are a couple decent hills... The pull outta MP6 up towards Kid Glove is a decent pull. And there's a spot between St Rt 67 and MP19 that can be bugger.

Are these trains used seasonally and thatís why itís back in storage a year later?

Gloomy day on the ISRR at Bee Hunter. Haven't seen an RA unit down this way in awhile.

British Petroleum Whiting IN coke fleet - a set has gone into seasonal storage on ISRR for past couple years at least.   Car primarily operate out of Whiting down to Western KY and back empty to Whiting - hanging quick right at Terre Haute and sticking into storage on ISRR is a fairly simple and cost effective place to hold cars during slack times.  They only need all their sets 8-10 months a year.

Petcoke.  By product of crude oil cracking/refining.  Goes to a coal/coke/carbon handling and processing company in Calvert City KY.

Fairly long mixed freight sitting at Bushrod with 3384 & 3371. Mostly tanker cars and some covered hoppers.
