NS Merchandise Trains With DPU?
Author: NSSpike

As a result of the “Top 21” plan I am aware of the following trains that are being run with Mid-Train DPUhere in the southeast. 

ID     ORIG    DEST
126 Chattanooga Roanoke
142 Birmingham Elkhart
154 Birmingham Linwood
178 Birmingham Bellevue
186 Birmingham Macon
320 Sheffield Birmingham
329 Birmingham Memphis
347 Chattanooga East Point GA

Possible Candidates     Not Confirmed
130 New ORL Chattanooga
314 New ORL Birmingham
345 Birmingham New ORL
355 Birmingham New ORL

What other merchandise trains are known and confirmed running on the NS system with DPU applied?

Realizing on some days for any given train based on tonnage,  DPU's may not be required.

Thanks

14N (Elkhart-Conway, unless that changed) seems to be running with DPU regularly.

123 usually has DPU.
15T/16T have had it in the past week.

310 (now Elkhart to Binghamton) often has DPU on account of lots of frac sand heading to the NY’s Southern Tier.

316 (Bellevue to Buffalo) had a single engine DPU pushing on the loaded auto racks this morning. Also saw Buffalo to somewhere west manifest running past the North East PA rail cam with DPU yesterday.

123 comes out of Burnside enroute to Knoxville with 3 big motors on the head end and 2 in the middle. He fills at Knoxville for a total train weight of up to 14,000 tons headed to Asheville and beyond.
