Re: Where Diz ? 2/14/2011

Converse, IN? If not there, it has to be somewhere on the old C&O line thru Indiana.

Re: UP 1982

Yes it did get to Detroit, rumor has it that it will be leading 171 since that train goes to the UP and they want their engine back!

Re: UP 1982

Arrived at Cincinnati at 7:30pm EST. I look for it to depart Ft. Wayne before dawn, probably around 6am or so. Gonna have to get north of Montpelior to get some good light on this thing(I'd go after it but I have to work tomorrow :( )

Re: Train Derailment

Should also add that NS will continue rerouting trains again today until that mess burns out and gets cleaned up so they can reopen the line. 234, 218, 217 are three of the trains I know of that took the New Haven-Butler-Toledo-Oak Harbor-Bellevue routing yesterday and I look for them to do the same...

Re: NS L80 Back in the Spot Light

Nice catch Bob, that unit and the WE 6315 were sitting in East Wayne yard last year on Christmas Eve. I've heard they are repaying HPH hours to NS.

Re: Intermodel Yard

Yep, NS has its own intermodal yard in Chi-town so that won't be a problem.

Re: Intermodel Yard

There's nothing wrong with the Casad depot property and in fact I hope it does come to fruition as it means a few more trains thru New Haven for me. I was just making a comment in regards to the promoters as they have promised one of these facilities before and not delivered.

Re: Intermodel Yard

Yep, now they want to put this intermodal or trans-load facility in the old Casad Depot property. I wish them good luck because their previous plan to locate it on the CFE sure didn't work out!

Re: CFE

The CHFW is the train symbol the CF&E uses for its eastbound train from Chicago to Ft. Wayne. The westbound run is symbolled FWCH. The crews here in Ft. Wayne also make weekly runs down the old Decatur Secondary to Decatur to service Bunge 5 days a week(will run on weekends if requested by Bunge).

Re: Out & About 1/21/2011

Yeah, you might need a Jordan or rotary snowplow added as a good leader to make it thru Indiana :lol:
