    Does anyone know where I can find an employee timetable or schedules for the Gulfport, MS Branch of the Meridian Division?

    I know that L-GP101 and L-GP102 run three times a week each between Gulfport and Hattiesburg, MS. They then go on to Jackson. MS with trackage rights on CN/IC. L-GP101 goes north on M-W-F, and L-GP102 goes south on T-T-S.

    I have seen other trains running between Gulfport and Jackson that I can not find any information on. These others may all be Extras, and so would not be listed on the employee timetable. I think this because many of these are powered by a single CSX GE Dash-9 hauling empty container well cars.

    Thx...:thumbs_up:

    I wouldn't be surprised if every so often Gulfport engine terminal gets a phone call from CSX DS in JAX saying something like...."Hi Guy, we have some well cars that need to be in Memphis in the morning. You don't mind if we run them up your line this afternoon, do you? Oh, by the way, they're passing Beauvoir siding at this moment and should be in Gulfport at your location in about 10 minutes. Sorry for the short notice, but you know how it is....Thanks?" :angel:

    Actually, A&M, this branch has so little traffic that the guys in the Gulport terminal probably welcome any activity that breaks their boredom, and brings in revenue.....:zip: :teeth:
