Re: New KCS Locos at E.W.

Thanks! I just happened to take a detour on the way home and swung by the yard to see if anything unusual was there and happened to catch them. They definitely stick out in a sea of NS black and white. Hopefully we'll see more roll through.

Re: New KCS Locos at E.W.

I was able to take a couple of pics last Saturday but didn't get them uploaded till today. As far as I know this was the second group of KCS units to come through East Wayne. I don't know how many more if any will be coming through.

Re: Random Sightings Around Fort Wayne this Fall

Caught the Central of Georgia heritage unit at East Wayne today. Unfortunately it was parked under the Maplecrest bridge and I couldn't stick around till it moved into a spot with better lighting and an unobstructed view.

Re: NS "Honoring Our Veterans" Locomotive

I heard they had it out at Baer Field for some National Guard training or some sort of ceremony... not quite sure. I hope I'm not on some NSA watch list now for taking pictures of sensitive military equipment and posting it online. :lol:

NS "Honoring Our Veterans" Locomotive

The NS "Honoring Our Veterans" locomotive has been hanging out in East Wayne Yard the last few days and has been in and out of the yard over the last couple of weeks. Here are a few shots that I've taken over the last couple of weeks including last Thursday when it was moving the Department of Defen...

Re: Norfolk Southern Locomotive at East Wayne

Nice shot! I caught it out there after work sitting by the geometry train. I wish I could have caught the Lackawanna unit earlier in the week when it came through.

Re: NS OCS in Fort Wayne

Today brought another interesting visitor to Fort Wayne. I don't know if anybody else saw this roll through Fort Wayne, but I caught the NS "Honoring Our Veterans" locomotive rolling eastbound through East Wayne Yard around 1PM.

NS OCS in Fort Wayne

The NS OCS is in town. For how long I don't know but it is parked next to the Do it Best parking lot and is visible from the Maplecrest Extension bridge. I got these pictures as I was leaving work today.

Re: Local Observations mid February

I saw that Gettysburg loco out there today after work but this was the best picture I could get without trespassing. I've heard that it is going to work on the ND&W. Speaking of observations, I also saw a pair of W&LE locomotives hanging around the yard. I wasn't aware of any run through arrangement...

Penn Central Heritage Unit in Fort Wayne

As of 4:30 this afternoon, the Penn Central heritage unit was sitting at the fuel rack in East Wayne. It was located on one of the tracks underneath the canopy so there was no chance of me getting a halfway decent picture. They may have moved it since then so it might be worth a look if you're out t...

Re: NS Pennslyvania Hertitage Unit in FW!

Nice pics! I caught it out there as well after work although I caught it leaving the fuel rack instead of sticking around till it made it to the west end of the yard. A friend who works for NS told me it has been in and out of Muncie for about the last week or two so it might be headed back that way.

Canadian Pacific GP20s at East Wayne

I got a bit of a surprise at the end of the work day to see a batch of brand new Canadian Pacific GP20s heading west out of East Wayne. It looks like this will be a semi-regular sight at least for the next few months with CP having ordered 150 of these locomotives from EMD.

Re: EMD Demonstrators at East Wayne

Yeah I saw that last night on heritageunits.com. It is unfortunate that they are so rare through these parts. I've been lucky enough to catch a few when they've been through town but I don't go out of my way to catch one.

Re: Pioneer Lines, Michigan Southern Railway Ohio Operations

Looks like 1606 (which is still sitting in the yard) has a new friend in 1603 which was sitting at the east end of E Wayne Yard this afternoon. Same paint scheme and no reporting marks that I could see although its paint job looked a bit better. As much as I hate it when people post news with no pic...
