Re: Van Wert happenings

I'm glad they will be using quality precast sections. They seem to last longer than paved in place asphalt.

Re: Where has everybody gone?

The thing about Facebook is users check it many times a day so its become the way to network on current train moves.

Re: WLE trackage rights to Lima

I know they ran at least 1 train to Lima last year for sure as I photographed it outside the I&O yard office. They regularly run to the CN yard in Toledo.

Re: Out & About Ft. Wayne

Thanks for posting, Anyone have any idea as to how many EMD's have acquired to refurbish or could NS be doing these units for someone else ? NS acquired about 80 SD40-2s and retired the rebuilt GP38-2s in the 5500 series as they were leased power. The best list I can find is at http://www.nsdash9.c...

My sightings around the area

I don't remember the symbol of this train but it does a pickup at east wayne before continuing west on the Huntington District. I had a rare Union Pacific heavy weight car going to a museum in California. I was linked the story by a comment on the video. http://www.wtrf.com/story/23915506/100-ton-ra...

Re: CF&E question

I believe they are all NS numbers because NS dispatched the line. When we called last year the lady told us CSX owns the tracks and it was their problem.

Re: Out & About November 2013

Nice shots! I think you got the first photo of that HLCX leaser in the CF&E. I got a night video of it in Van Wert but that is all so far. Keep an eye out for trains between Cecil and Defiance because I just filmed what was probably the ND&W's first revenue move over that section.

Re: This Weekend sightings

I caught that UP heavy weight car at Mike (laid in wait for them!). An intermodal had to come through junction onto the New Castle so I got ahead of them west of Hugo. Got some decent shots of them. It will be few weeks before I get them posted though. I shoot more than I have time to upload!
