    Thats the only thing running right now that I have seen, in fact a rock train is sitting in town tonight, large shot rock in side dumps followed by a conveyor trainset full of ballast. They are setup in a push pull fashion, heading east loaded, back west empty. There is no telling how many tens of thousands of tons of rock they will end up using.

    The GREX train past Kirkwood mid-afternoon was a conveyor train, but had no locomotives on the rear.

    Current (5/5 report ) from BNSF shows the Cuba sub, the Thayer south sub, and the river sub between crystal city and Cape Girardeau as being out of service.

    That is a significant portion of the Frisco....

    Another day of loaded rock trains heading east.

    Another loaded rock train went west on Tuesday morning. However, they must have been effective because the line appears open. Tuesday evening (5/9/17) the Tate & Lyle corn syrup train went westbound around 16:10. It was followed by the westbound local with the usual LP loads. Just a few moments ago a westbound (GALTUL?) went by with some military equipment and the usual coil steel loads.

    Glad to hear it looks like the crews got the road open again. Well done! Get it going Frisco!
