I noticed some of the data for CSX is woefully out of date for the former CR lines on this site...... anyway this can be updated?

They have moved to a Road and Dispatcher channel style for the ex CR lines.......

Pair 1 (IB Dispatcher) (St Louis Line Subdivision)
St. Louis Line Subdivision Road 160.230
IB Dispatcher 161.070

Pair 2 (IC Dispatcher) (Indy Terminal)
Road 160.800
Dispatcher 160.560

Pair 3 (ID Dispatcher) (Indianapolis Line Sub)
Road 160.800
Dispatcher 160.680

Some other things need some general cleanup as well.. there are some CSXT lines missing.... the ex B&O Across northern Indiana. the ex Monon...

I run a Railroad Feed from Indianapolis IN. Feel Free to visit.

Submit to the DB what needs to be deleted and what needs to be added. Preferably, to make it easier to understand, you can format it the way it should look in the DB. Thanks :)

I'd be glad to help work on this. I actually talked to Steve about it several months ago, but got busy with other projects and didn't follow through.

My suggestion for organization would be something like this:

Code:
CSX
  |--Indianapolis Line (Union City to Indianapolis) - ID Dispatcher
    |--160.800 Road
    |--160.680 Dispatcher
  |--Indianapolis Terminal - IC Dispatcher
    |--160.800 Road
    |--160.560 Dispatcher
    |--xxx.xxx Hawthorne Yard
    |--xxx.xxx IU "Belt 1"
  |--St. Louis Line (Indianpolis to Terre Haute) - IB Dispatcher
    |--160.230 Road
    |--161.070 Dispatcher
  |-- Avon Yard
    |--xxx.xxx Hump
    |--xxx.xxx Puller
    |--xxx.xxx Car Inspectors
NS
    |--xxx.xxx
    |--xxx.xxx
Hopefully, that gets the idea across.

Perhaps we could collaborate on something W9RXR, work up something in email and submit it. I have a lot of notes on RR frequencies. I even have some odd things,The Amtrak Beech Grove UHF repeater frequencies.

Your call would suggest that your a railfan. Have you visited my online stream?

A few quick notes on what is there,

the 4 Indy Belt channels are used as switching channels now... Dispatching for the belt is on the IC Dispatcher pair
Hawthone bounces around between these channels, and the Indy Road channel, as does the Transfer yard.

The Avon Car Department at avon has/(or had) a repeater on 160.650mhz.. I have the input here somewhere......

The two CSX Police frequencies were re farmed into the dispatch channels.

for the CSX Garret Subdivision.... the B&O across northern Indiana.. here is what it looks like

CSX Garret Sub road channel 160.230
CSX Garret Yard Operations Channel 161.160
CSX Garret Yard Switching Channel 160.320
CSX Garret Sub Dispatcher160.290 Chicago to Garret (Calumet City)
CSX Garret Sub Dispatcher161.370 Garret to State Line Ohio (Calumet City)

I also noticed for the NS that Elkhart and the Dearborn division are missing..... Chicago Line, Kankakee, others....

I will need to dig that stuff up, although the main road channel up there is 160.800

CSX uses 161.370 as road on the Monon and C&EI. It's also used as a dispatch channel in Michigan and Ohio.

I am working on a revised frequency list.

May want to expand on this to say that it includes the Crawfordsville and Frankfort Secondaries. Shelbyville, too.
|-- Garrett Sub (ex B&O) (Indianapolis to Garrett) - RB Dispatcher
Indianapolis to Garrett?
|-- C&ED Sub (ex C&EI) (Garrett to Ohio Line) - SB Dispatcher
Should be Danville IL to Evansville
|-- Lafayette Sub (ex L&N) (Lafaeytte to End of Track) - SA Dispatcher
Might want to say Lafayette to Cloverdale instead in case folks don't know where the track ends.

Looks good, Shawn. That's what I had in mind.

KC9JUM - when listening to your feed, I sure hear a lot of "odd" stuff. The railroad lingo is foreign to me. Thanks for providing it.
