Verified... First NS train through Van Wert on CF&E

Post by bnsf8000 » Wed Nov 05, 2014 2:58 pm

The first run through NS train on the CF&E was through Van Wert WB at 3:30pm. Leading were NS 1050/9064/9855 with a long mixed freight. Had heard symbol maybe W1E. Is this symbol correct? Can some of you verify/correct this symbol?

Another NS run through on the CF&E was through Van Wert around 11AM this morning. Local railfan said it may have been another 19A or something like that. He didn't get symbol.
