Detours this weekend

Post by waldwickrailfan » Tue May 21, 2013 7:31 pm

Memorial Day weekend 3 CSX trains will be detouring down the NYSW due to signal work in the Utica area, they are Q008 and 2 Q156's. There are mixed reports of when they are expected in NJ, so I can't give a definite answer now, hopefully later in the week

Detours NOW for Thursday 6-27-13 as a result of derailment of CSX Q364 and Q461. Current plan as of 11:30 am: BH-1 is already in Syracuse with SU-99/100. They will be building the 100 and parking it until Saturday morning. The BH-1 crew will bring the 1st detour train south from Syracuse to Binghamton. They will park it and it will run east on the SU-100 schedule this evening. CL-1 was cancelled this morning because they rec'd no freight from CP, NS, or CSX for Cortland or Tully. However, the CL-1 crew has been marked for 1500 to taxi to Syracuse for the Q100 (reported to be the hottest train on the railroad). But it will only go as far as Binghamton presently until there is a crew rested to take east. Might see some westbound detours as well, but unsure at present time.
