East Saugatuck, MI -- 24 August, 2017 It's Q326, and today's it's another heavy one. With 14,000 tons of train - over 10,000 feet in fact - to get up the formidable Saugatuck Grade, CSX dispatched manned helpers in the form of D802 to assist in the ascent. Crews in this area are used to this procedure, as any train over 10,000 tons much be shoved or doubled up the hill. So midway up the hill, at the 133rd Ave underpass which dates all the way back to 1908, the drone is in the air, to capture the train's twisting ascent from the Kalamazoo River Valley. CSX Q326 w/ D802 Helpers Consist: - CSX 936 [ES44AH] - CSX 82 [CW44AC] - 171 cars [Mixed; Barr-GRP] - BNSF 6081 [ES44AC] *D802 Helpers* - BNSF 8496 [SD70ACe] *D802 Helpers* Location/Time: - CSX Grand Rapids Sub, East Saugatuck, MI, 133rd Ave Underpass, on 8-24-17 at 14:56 EDT Thanks for watching!
