Re: Akron, Canton & Youngstown [ACY] to Delphos

As I recall, Rehnor's (sp?) masterpiece on the Nickle Plate Road had some discussion on the ACY.

Re: New US 24 route

And I can remember clean, well maintained roadbeds, regular traffic, a full-time switcher crew in Defiance Ohio, and thru traffic. What a change from that to being a long, dead siding!!!

Re: Has CSX thrown wrench into NS/CF&E at Bucyrus

Just stopped by the depot yesterday in Bucyrus. No one around; definitely no sign of any track work going on.

Re: All is Quiet......

This morning, I'll make the big sacrifice and spend 10 minutes typing out a sentence or two. I`ve been busy lately - Mom and Dad going into a home,truck dying, breaker pane...

Re: Higgins Hill

Ya know, there doesn't seem to be much info on helper "pockets" available. At one time the B&O stationed a helper out here - east of Hicksville - to help loaded trains climb the grade over town. That's all gone now. All that remains are a a couple of concrete abutments. Just as an aside, the big ear...
