Rule #2: Don't be offended if someone knows more than you.
Should be some activity west of Honda today, although it will probably be limited to just west of Adams area. The downturn in the coal market caused the deal for the cars that been stored at far west end to fall apart, so the movement pictured in the previous posts in this thread never made it past Honda. Since then, another empty train had shown up for storage, so both trains where kept on main behind Honda. This morning, CIND is enroute to Greensburg with yet another empty train for storage. No room at the inn to park this train without moving others. Anticipate at least the set parked between middle and west Honda crossovers will be shoved west of Adams out toward the "pipeyard" - both currently stored trains could end up west of Adams to open up main between east and middle Honda crossovers to give CIND a little more flexibility in switching Honda.
Just guessing , they don't want anyone else to have it.
Scrap, do you think that status would change when CSX finally sells the track to Shelbyville?
What the chance in the future that Honda would ever want to ship west to Indy? Does it look like CIND will keep this section of track "out of service" for near term only or potentially for long term?
Does the NS have some advantage shipping autos? They appear to be the main shipper for Honda and Toyota here in IN. Is that just an IN thing or do they dominate auto shipping across the country?Sent from my MB886 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
