We will be in touch with each other thru out the day for updated Posts.

Edited for at 06:37 AM EST:  Reminder:  For those who are asking and may want to follow the Red and Blue Units final Journeys.
Trains Publications – Internet access to the Map for the entire Red Unit and Blue Unit routings was posted on TO.COM on 01/17/17 – including the Rail Carriers and Rail Routings which each Circus Train would/will be taking until the end of the run(s).  The Map was provided by Trains Publications in concert with Feld Director of Domestic Transportation Office.

Can anyone tell me what the train symbol on CSX is as it heads to Philly?
Thanks, TT

I read it's P926-13 but I didn't hear it on the radio, so I can't swear to it.

I'm guessing Richmond at 0330 Tuesday but that depends on CSX dispatching.

Here is P926-13, running late, but at a good clip, at the S174 south of Apex NC, crossing NC540 on a new(ish) 2012 bridge and alignment.
