I'll be folding some other Strates topics into this thread; it appears we haven't been tracking in a while:

Per the Strates FB page on 5/11 (Friday):
Train Update:
CSX is finalizing the arrangements for the locomotives that will pull the train to Jersey City, NJ, and we have been assured that the train will be underway by Sunday! As soon as we have an exact departure time we will post it.

CSX will hand the train off to Norfolk Southern Corp for a short run to The Meadowlands where it will be unloaded on Thursday on New Jersey Transit tracks. From there, Norfolk Southern will take the empty train to the Middletown, NY area for storage.

Wow! How are they going to fit all those cars into the Meadowlands? And the 85' car with a single pickup truck was a laugh! Thanks for the link Jeff.
