NS Chattanooga train symbols?
Author: ShortlinesUSA

I went out for a long-overdue roll around town yesterday, and noticed several new symbols on the radio.  I laid eyes on a couple of these trains and have the following questions:

1. Have the Plant Scherer coal train symbols changed?  I saw a 76Z (affirmed many times over on the radio) that was BNSF-powered with RWSX hoppers.  I thought at first at might be a Kingston, TN train, but once I saw the RWSX hoppers, knew it wasn't.  It did indeed go south down the Georgia Division toward Atlanta.  These have been 730-series trains for years, with second sections as Q3x.

2.  NS 289-- this one came into DeButts across the Hopskip bridge, and I'm pretty certain certain from the Georgia Division.  Interesting thing is, it appeared to be all manifest, despite having an autorack train symbol.

Any info on those is greatly appreciated.  Andrew, if it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting the current NS symbols for Chattanooga now that we are full on humping again?  You do an awesome job there and it's most appreciated!  And it sure was nice to hear the terminal radio frequency so congested that the chatter is almost constant again.  For a while there, it was kind of depressing to hear the long periods of silence.

NS 289 sets out autoracks at "Waters" in Harriman, TN.  These are then picked up by NS 285.
