K637-09 thread for Wednesday 05/13/15...
Author: santoro2020

K637-09 departed Buffalo, NY at roughly 2:00 A.M. this morning with DME #6359 "Mount Rushmore", CP #5957, BNSF #4653. Should be a daylight run West of Collinwood for anyone interested.

Latest HU report has it in Cleveland, but with 6359 no longer leading. Can't verify independently.

What do u mean figures. I myself don't blame the crew for turning the power, those Dash 9s are more compfortable than the 40-2. I'm surprised they didn't do that back at Selkirk

I wouldn't blame the crew for turning the power, either, but from this railfan's perspective, their having done so certainly made the train a LOT less interesting. With the DME "Rushmore" unit leading, I might have tried to figure out a way to get down to the B&O this afternoon. With a BNSF GE leading, I wouldn't make any extra effort at all to see it even here in Toledo.

And don't start with "The railroad isn't run for the enjoyment of the foamers." I know that, and I bet Santoro does, too. But I don't fault him for being disappointed.

I don't blame them nor am upset, I anticipated this train and was awoken from a buddy to tell me about it before the sun came up (my fault for keeping my ringer turned up) so I decided to venture out early in this foul weather only to be surprised at the last minute it was wyed. Sure, I saw it but after seeing it before trail I'd like to see it again at the point but oh well. I give props for these guys to still put up with standard cabs on the point but it's just one of those "Monday morning" feelings where I just accepted it. I saw it and the crew was happy, we all win. I'm pretty sure we've all been there.

Hey, its better than nothing. Hopefully there's a next time. I wish it could be like the CofG and go twice both ways.
