Where are the trains detouring to? They're not heading south to Bingo,
- Gino- There is a train detouring to Bing. I dont know the symbol but its
a stack-train. It comes off CSX in Syracuse at Geddes St. (CP-293) .We
take over and head south to Bing.Once it arrives in Bing we will proceed
on DH track 5 thru the diamond at CP-BD (NS) and take head room at the
DH East Bing Yard to clear BD. Then the train will back up west on
either NS main #1 or #2 to clear CP-BD again.They will recrew there then
the recrew will take the train down the NS Southern Tier to NJ.Then when
the train arrives Little Ferry NJ it will interchange back to the CSX.
