They had a 33 car derailment between Atlanta and Austell last Friday that didn’t make the news.

With the collision near Cincinnati the other day; this makes three sizable accidents on NS in less than a week.

If I recall correctly CSX had multiple derailments shortly after PSR was implemented.  I hope NS didn't get rid of their track maintenance people like CSX did.

I’m told the one near Austell last week was caused by PTC. My conductor son didn’t elaborate, unfortunately.

Within the past year, line got new CWR.  Also, there is a spring switch on the xouth end of the Mossy passing siding.  Siding paralles GA 247, and junction with US 341 is just south of the siding.

You will see NS detours through Folkston, Ga.

What routing?  Via the connection at Jessup?

I suppose they could do it at Jesup, although the connecting track there probably isn't in the best of condition. The alternative is via Savannah at Central Jct.

More than likely high priority intermodals getting on CSX in Atlanta and then south via Manchester and Waycross, GA.

Yes, that makes the most sense if CSX can accommodate the additional traffic Atlanta-Manchester-Waycross-Folkston.

One other option is get on the Heart of Georgia (HOG) in Cordele then get back on the NS in McRe then head for Macon they would not have to run around there train in Cordele. Plus the connecting track in Jessup has been paved over at the Amtrak Station

That is exactly what is happening. Yesterday 209 and 229 were combined.

No connection there, HOG cordele cars are interchanged in Americus

Can confirm. Just drove by Racepond in between Waycross and folkston and there was a NS intermodal train waiting with mostly EMP containers. Didn't get the number though. It was pretty weird seeing it on CSX tracks
