It looks a little bit like the old Erie ROW in Huntington. I walked with my nephew a couple years ago south of Taylor St. on the remains of the line and found most of the wire poles still in place amongst the trees. We even found an old concrete telephone shanty about 100 yards from the street. That...
I read over on Railroadfan that the new owner plans to move all of the Defiance power to Woodburn to return it to its owner before they bring their own power in. This would be the first train to roll between Defiance and Cecil in a looong time. Anyone else heard anything about this?
On the main Fort Wayne Railfan website in the WBCR section, there's two pics of MAW#12 on the page. Maybe they painted over the MAW on the unit with WBCR and it's still down there. Just found the pic of #12 on the MAW curious, are there two of them? The pic above also says Operation Lifesaver...hmmm...
Anyone know when they moved #12 back to the MAW from the WBCR? What part of the line was that taken on, Mike? The side east of the CSX diamond? I would think they would have taken #12 to the west end to put old #7 out of its misery.
I do believe that running trains on that line again is their ultimate goal. Otherwise they would not have fixed the crossing at CR 115, aka Emerald Rd, they would have just left it paved over. I remember that derailment, JW, and I believe that it was about a mile or so east of CR 115. My grandparent...
If I remember correctly, the bridge that was burned was between Cecil and Antwerp, and would have to have been repaired in order for the MAW to continue hauling fuel to Lafarge, since the switch to go to the cement plant is in Cecil itself. Last time I was up there and crawling over the MAW, you cou...
Are the ballast cars pretty close to the grade crossing at US 127 or have they passed the highway. It's been awhile since I've been up that way, can't recall how far it is from Cecil to 127.

Hey guys. I was in IN and OH this last weekend and found this old rail bridge just north of Willshire, OH on S.R. 49, which I believe is part of the old Clover Leaf. Thought you might enjoy the pic. I'm back in FL now and glad to be out of the cold. John http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y282/Shakeri...
Thanks for the pic's, Dominique. They would have had to have brought that peice of equipment in from Cecil, unless they had a crane drop it on sight, which I suppose is also possible, because the crossing at Defiance is still out. The STB posting says they will have the crossing in by Dec sometime i...
Not sure how far down the Peninsula you're planning on visiting, but I found a museum just south of Tampa on the gulf coast. http://www.frrm.org/ is their web site. Have a good vacation!
CSX is king down here in FL. FEC is second, and I believe NS has trackage rights down to Miami on the FEC. There are several short lines every here and there, but not much else to speak of. SCL seemed to have a monopoly on FL. There's talk of building a high speed rail line between major cities, but...
