Re: GP15-1's in Michigan

No GP-15's in or out of Flint on CSX. As a matter of fact, seeing any kind of 4 axle CSX unit is rare anymore. Most trains into and out of Flint are now long enough and heavy enough that 6 axles rule on all trains...exception the L-737 Plymouth to Flint local that runs every other night and returns to Plymouth lite. Some of those are 4 axle, but no '15's. There may be one over in Port Huron/St. Clair, but even the Flint/Port Huron runs on CN trackage are 6 axle. After a series of engine failures on the grade just east of Davison several years ago, which plugged up the single track main for several hours each time, CN demands 6 axle power on those runs, even if the train is only a few cars long.
