Q132-05 to have pair of KCSM units
« on: August 03, 2010, 09:21:23 PM »
Saw this on another board I frequent. Q132-05 is supposed to have a pair of KCSM SD70ACe's (4095 & 96) in the "southern belle" scheme. May be something to keep an eye out for.

Is there a way to tell when he will be coming in? I have seen the 132 at a WHOLE lot of times...

The guy that reported says that it is due into Salem sometime after midnight tonight so my guess is be on the lookout in Indy from sunrise to 11 or so.

Because it's Indiana, and maybe they haven't seen it before. I personally would love to see the Southern Belle Units, but can't since I can't get down there to view them.

Anybody have the slightest idea when it will arrive in Avon?  I understand to be on the lookout from sunrise on, but a close time frame would be helpful. Thanks.

Incase everyone hasn't seen yet, it's projected to be in Salem by 0100.  It would be in Indy pretty early if that's the case.

But 106 doesn't go to Toledo or Detroit. and it sounds promising that it'll make the run across the Toledo Branch during daylight. Daylight trains on the Toledo Branch are somewhat infrequent, and to have out of the ordinary foreign power is bonus.

Depending on what happens once it gets on CSX and to Avon, it looks as if the possibility exists that it may even leave a hair before sunrise.  Now I'm not sure if Q132 stops for fuel or what, or how it might get delayed, but I will try to be around Avon/Near West side of Indy by around 0700 and if nothing else, get Q108 at least.

Please post if you capture it AMTK24. I will be keeping an eye on this forum and I have several people positioned up and down the line to give me the heads up. I am on standby as it is right now.

I have also noticed that the power that takes Q132 up to Detroit leads this new Q233 or whatever back west. Wilol this be the case with the belles or is it too early to tell.

Like AMTK24 said due to Salem in 0100 Matt you may just need to go from there.

Looks like this RailroadFan forum will be having members posting as they see Q132-05 tomorrow. Judging by the username (I think it is you KCSLOVER94!) I am quoting you in saying that knowing CSX the train will not be in Avon before dawn. But who knows. We all know railroads are subject to change!

Might just be something for all of you and I to keep an eye on. Good luck everyone!
