I am not certain just when the first revenue moves will take place out of the Port of Miami but I will make it known here when such is to take place if I have the information.

I think the plan when they get much more capacity to load at the port is to run some cars back to Hialeah and some cars to OJUS where they will either be made up for a northbound or picked up by an existing northbound. There are a couple of jobs in West Palm again but I don't think using West Palm for these cars is in the plan but then things can always change.boatsmate wrote:Noel, any Idea what time this is happening??

ETA: Someone might just be using it as a wye. Headed back north. I might be down by the tracks in a little bit, so I'll post back if it's anything interesting (assuming it's running up to West Palm).

I have seen empty cars on the lead (after the Bridge) and I have seen the bridge down but seem to miss the train itself.The job runs as required out of Hialeah. So far there is only one customer at the port because the yard is not finished and they have a very limited area in which to work. I don't know what your best bets are for a train. Once the yard is finished there will be much more traffic in and out of the port.
Thanks for the information so far
