Re: Back Again

Don't know if it is true or not, but when Ferguson Rd was widened, it was supposed to be Phase I of South side "bypass" like the US 30 parking lot on the North side.

Re: Back Again

Sorry Craig, I have to disagree with you here. Dumping on volunteers who spend their own time and own money (internet connection, electricity) and don't have the time left over to edit every post is counter-productive. I enjoy your posts. I look forward to more. Take a look at Trains forum. Every me...

Re: Where Diz 4/30/2020

I was going to say claypool at first, but then I saw the 2nd photo. Too many tracks, and the scenery didn't clear out any cobwebs.

i still hear the local going up the old GRI to service the industrial park off Coliseum blvd, Not sure what the frequency is.
Isn't the cement distributor at the end of the line? INDOT and others are still using concrete, so it should be busy.

OK, GREAT! Picture three makes this whole thing make sense to me now. I know for a fact that I have NEVER seen this picture. Thanks for the help!
I have to agree with Bob, I don't recall ever seeing this angle before. It really puts things in perspective.

Re: RoadRailer almost made it 4 Decades

There was another TC train on its side down in GA. Glynnwood or somesuch place. I have photos of the aftermath stored somewhere.

TC was a trucking company first and foremost. As they used less rail, they still had some contract trucking to do.

Re: NKP 626

I saw the three pulleys arranged across the horizontal bar with what looks like two “flags” raised and thought ball type signal. Zooming in, I didn’t see enough detail to make out whether it pivoted or not.

Re: Can anybody explain the city of Fort Wayne's lack of interest in Headwater's Junction?

Never forget tax revenue when talking to politicians. What would bring in more of other peoples' money they can pocket, I mean, spend, a shiny HQ Building or a park-like rail museum site? I know NS would not be interested in sharing the R/W, but I can envision the trolley line circulating to a spot ...

Re: Refueling at Garrett 11-23-2019

It happens. Unit was needed before serving was completed; someone mis-read the fuel gage; fuel gage not working properly; it was “just enough”, but something happened to delay it en-route to the next service location, etc.
