Around Van Wert we have saw 2 unit lite consists on more than one occasion. They're gearing up for early next year when NS will really start rolling on the CF&E from around Tolleston to Crestline. :D It's finally coming to the Pennsy!

Saw an NS WB through Van Wert around 6:20PM this evening. Leading were NS 7676/9057/9747 with 85 cars. Nice freight train.

Since NS is going to start running more trains are they going to update road crossing with gates or will train speeds be so slow that they won't?

It' CSX property so if it gets gates I would imagine it would be G&W's doing and they are running slow drags over this line.

11:35am this morning I saw what looked to be a westward light NS move. Single EMD unit but I couldn't see if there were any cars with it. If there were they were all gons or flats but I suspect it was running light.

Edit: forgot to add this was in Warsaw.
