Train number

Post by Michael Meisener » Tue Apr 10, 2007 11:15 am

I saw a train go by my house yesterday morning on the Wabash & when I got to work that same train was going South on the NCD. The train had for power BNSF 5785 (Swoosh) BNSF 9888 (H2). Where Does this train start & Finish and does anyone have a number on him?

:x I didn't write down any locomotive numbers Monday, but that BNSF 9888 sounds familiar. I did see that unit on 251, a Triple Crown train, heading for Atlanta on 04/05/07. It's possible the train you saw was 197 which starts in Detroit and runs via Fort Wayne and Cincy to Knoxville or Chattanooga, I don't remember which.
