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...

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

It's been a while, but I saw my first autorack train (289?) in a long time heading South THU04JUN2020. For the last three months, you'd see a car or two, maybe a block of six in a merchandise train, not a solid unit train. Since PSR ate the brains of rail leaders, 289 (the regularly scheduled rack t...

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.
