One of my favorite shots and experiences of the Lake State was this Z127 hammering back towards Wixom here at Buckhorn Lake Rd. The train is loaded down with a hefty 131 cars and 7300 tons. These 2 SD50's roar out of Holly with cars bound for interchange to the CSX at Wixom. The job has a bigger train today as the CSX D711 local from Port Huron brought in 35 cars of LPG the day before. The LSRC will deliver this train to the CSX in a siding around Wixom. Great sounds, cool signals, nice codeline, fall colors, excellent company, and a good crew, what more does a guy need!
Photos showing the railroad pole lines. The pole line used four basic electrical circuits - telegraph, telephone, signaling, and power. Modern technologies of fiber optics, microwave, radio, satellite, and computers have been replacing the pole lines.
