Saw the empties headed east through Deshler, OH on the cam there a few days ago. One of the folks on the chat knew where they were headed.

Q620 heading north with nice power. Leading is a CSX SD40-3, Trailing is BC Rail 4626, and A Ex CSX unit, "the ones with the black band through the CSX logo, I think GECX is the reporting mark" and almost 140 cars.

About 4 am a loaded military train went up. I only noticed because I could hear it stopped somewhere between around milepost 3 and maybe the Parkway bridge, it stopped, started, stopped, then finally went on north. I don't know if they were inspecting it or had some kind of problem (maybe with the air, it's cold tonight).

May have been some other problem, another northbound about an hour later also came to a stop, I heard the slack run in (or out).

Sounds like a return from a JRTC rotation down at Fort Polk, LA.

Do you know if that was the first or 2nd of 3 military trains? there's 3 of them heading to Ft Drum. 2 were at Belle Island night and first one was supposed to head up around 9 pm. 3rd one is still heading to Syracuse I believe.

Apparently there was a problem, possibly involving the KCS locomotives. Might have been a track issue. I have no further details. The same friend sent a photo of the locos stopped in the middle of the Conway Road crossing, rather tying things up, traffic-wise...

Based on some radio traffic I heard while in Watertown this evening, the KCS units may be headed south on Q621. No promises, though. I didn't hear the DS issue an EC1 so I can't say for sure.

Yep, and Virtual Railfan apparently has a cam in Pulaski. It came back south today.
