Re: Thruway Crossing Closed

Did they swap the rail through the crossing, or will they close it again when the rail gang works it way there?

Re: CFE gets $4.5 million grant...

That's a good question. NS is using 136# rail from SDI to replace both rails on the New Castle District from Muncie to the Fort. It takes a lot of work to swap out the extrusion plate and all the shaping rollers in a mill like SDI. They prefer, obviously, to produce huge batches of one size. To stay...

Re: Thruway Crossing Closed

Maybe rebuilding the crossing before the rail is replaced. The rail gang went through Bluffton Sep29th.

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

The train with autoracks is no longer 288/289, but 188/189. 189 has a block of general freight up front and lots of autoracks. Most days well over 100 cars. 188 doesn't seem to have much, if any merchandise block. Tue08Sep2020. 174 had a pull apart just North of Ossian. This train had 2x2x0 dpu set-...

They were preparing to remove the concrete base in Decatur. Did it finally come down?

Re: Remarkable reference

You mis-understand, I work with INDOT every other day, so this mind-numbing complexity seems normal to me. Howard nailed it. As for the errors, I see them all the time. Some of it has to do with non-compliant paperwork to update information, like not filing the proper abandonment forms. Purchase agr...
