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

Man, I've been trying to reply to your May 4 post for three weeks, and have been blocked by the Spamhaus spam filter claiming that my ISP had been "blacklisted" Just on Comcast cable. So it looks like the keeper of the blacklist needs to do a refresh? Seems to be working once again, I was able to p...

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

I agree with you that I'd like to know more about the plans with the 765, especially since the dark clouds of the pandemic seem to finally be lifting :) . I don't know how to deal with the Spamhaus issue.. it is above knowledge.. I believe that NKP 765 will become a resident of Steuben County India...

Re: No Wonder this Place is Dead

I'm still being denied when trying to post from my home via direct route or through a proxy, by the "Spamhaus" feature claiming that my ISP is "blacklisted" For the record, I browse all over the internet, post in dozens of online communities...regularly. And this is the only place where I experienc...

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

Well, since the forum has been nearly dormant, I don't feel so bad steering this discussion onto a tangent. Any discussion being better than none. Does the FWRHS sincerely believe that the narrow guage excursion operations to the zoo will have a sustained patronage? I mean, I hope that it would, bu...

Westbound M-1 at Junction Tower

The only thing that I do know of this photo is that it's westbound Pennsylvania 4-8-2 M-1 No. 6980 on Fort Wayne's west side and you can see the GE Campus on the background and this photo would have been taken from JUNCTION TOWER

Re: ND&W Rehab Update Cecil OH,

Awesome pictures, thanks for the updates. Which sections of the line got upgraded? I meant to get up there between Christmas and New Years but that never happened to check it out myself. Ken If I'm correct the 136# rail was for a section of 10 miles and they stopped just west of Cecil, I believe th...

Re: ND&W Rehab Update

85 to 136 would be a major upgrade. You sure it isn't 115 to 136? Positive.. and yes it is a major upgrade, I helped to facilitate a sale of several semi loads of 85# rail that was taken up when the Indiana Northeastern did their upgrade so the ND&W make repairs when they 1st took over.. I also sal...
