Re: Railroad Celebration 2011

Craig,

Is The Three Rivers Railroad Heritage Council still having it's January meeting? I seem to remember in years past that when you have Railroad Celebration that you don't hold the regular meeting.

Re: FWRHS getting an NS SD9?

Does this mean we will see an NKP double header during the ferry moves for the 765 or will NS still want one of their engines in the consist?

Re: Steam Railways on PBS39 Saturday, 9/11 & Tuesday 9/14

Mark, The BBC has shown many great rr programs over the years. Most focus on local (British) presevation railroads and operating railroads, others are just educational programming about railroading in general.

This building is south of the Baker Street Station. Last time I was down there I noticed the spur that lines this building. Who owns this?

Then the NS power moved off and let the 765 move under her own steam to bring it home down the society's siding. She had the to...
