NS trains that change crews in downtown Toledo
Author: Gerrypaul

I'm trying to update my thinking about what NS trains (new symbols too) are currently swapping crews near the AmTrak station in Toledo. I am also interested in scheduled timeframes for each. 
I think I know that the #258 & #259 intermodals running between Harrisburg and Voltz Yard in KC are daily through here. I think the eastbound #258 may be expected at Toledo  about  6am-10am  (seem right?) and the westbound #259 about 7am-10am (?). 

I am asking anyone to please fill in the others. I know there are several in each direction. 
I may be wrong on this, but I have an overall impression that NS's new symbols are only that; that the trains themselves run on very similar scheduled times and even resemble how they appeared before. 

To note the two I've mentioned, they were the #20T and #21T. The times to expect them in Toledo are really basically the same and they look the same as before. 

Thank you for whatever help anyone can provide!

Almost any train you see in Toledo, Ohio will change crews there, including the unit commodity trains, unless it's a long pool crew.

Symbol wise I cannot be of help as the new Intermodal symbols even confuse me as it is, and I grew up on this line, as well.as spent many an hours up here.
