They were supposed to be on last night but I guess Q70128 was cancelled.

Greg,

Q701 did run last night, they had like 100 cars, but hit the defect detector coming down on Metro North. I think they and Q430 did a swap around Peekskill. Sometimes those two trains run combined with both garbage and general merchandise. There was no Q431 I believe last night.

Yeah I witnessed that and felt really bad for the conductor who had to walk the train in that wind! I thought that was just Q431 though. I'll be out again tonight.

Did CSX trip 1 of the 3rd rail detectors?

Yeah. Hit the detector at Manitou, appeared to be a false alarm. The crew changed with the NB where they stopped and continued south after about 45 mins.

I'm sure it'll be a while before they start venturing onto the Joint Use Premises.

Will these units take a trip to Morris Park and get their ASC gear tested and oked for use on LIRR?
