Must be what I heard and posted as NB on a ISRR thread.

They were southbound two days ago with a pretty healthy train. 20 to 25 cars.  Saw the tail end on 67 at Centerton and could see head end in rear view mirror around the curve towards Bradford Woods.

Kid Glove and Indy Step Saver got sick of the black hole that is CSX moving todays freight 14 days later. Been shipping alot of cars thru NS at Oakland City. The north end local and the Worthington local usually meet and swap cars in Spencer.

An acquaintance has randomly been in Spencer lately, and has seen the southbound train tied down crewless on the westside.

This morning it was the ISRR 3387 with about 10 cars. Sometime last week it was around 25 cars.

Following up a question from an older thread on the ISRR, it has had both grain and plastics hoppers.

Tis why I politely declined CSX's offer to move my caboose and trucked it....I figured the black hole would swallow it.

The 3052 is parked in Spencer again this evening, with 9 cars.

Got a glimpse of a placard on one grainer. It carries "industrial oxidized corn starch" for GPC thus likely going to the Grain Processing Corporation facility in Maysville, 4 miles southwest of Washington. The springs looked like the car was probably empty.

Saw a ISRR Locomotive Saturday on a Westbound CSX Freight. Caught it earlier in the week going East. What was that all about.

Was is 2138?  It's been in town on CSX - that that was it, its not a ISRR unit - it was a GC unit.  Fresh rebuilt/paint from Metro East going to Georgia Central
