Last I had heard the NS OCS was going to tour the CFE from Hobart to Crestline. Has something changed? I have heard NKP to Fort Wayne and may make the turn at Mike. I'm not sure they would even need to run from Hobart to the FW but they can. I thought they were going to run the CFE to check it out. Anyone know any new info. TO says Chicago to FW. I thought it was going clear to Crestline. :? PW

This is the dead head move to position the train in Chicago so that its ready for its trip down the CFE next week. Latest news I've seen is that its running across the Chicago Line tonight, so I guess we'll find out in a little while which way to Chicago is correct. Train is running as NS 955.
