Re: Roll Call

I am still here.

Server Op and ATCS Coordinator for the lines that radiate out of Fort Wayne. With a TON of help from the Eastern Indiana ATCS Squirrels of course.

I come here to get wind of any signal work that might affect the ATCS files.

New Haven and Dawkins siding redone

I am not sure if there are any external changes (there might be) but both interlocking machines on both ends of the New Haven siding have been upgraded and replaced. Sometimes these changeovers are associated with new home signal changes. This is following the redo of Dawkins last fall. The Fostoria...

Re: CR Muncie 12-1985

Neat pictures. There is a good chance all those GP7 and GP9 were not going to scrap. Conrail contracted with Illinois Central Gulf's Paducah shops, Morrison-Knudson's Boise shops, Rock Island's Silvis shops, and PNC's Mount Vernon shops to rebuild these old warriors into GP8 and GP10 locomotives for...

Re: Help with odd address on Fort Wayne ATCS NS server

That is okay, your closer and all ready have started. Good luck and I would love to see what you have. I encourage you to claim it and post your files to the ATCSmon group. I will keep CP-ALEX though since it's isolated and on the Muncie BCP anyway.

Re: Out and About on the NS New Castle.

NS has turned on quite a bit. Not only Bluffton, but all of Millville and the HOS at Richmond. Bluffton has an extremely high mast AND high gain antenna and is on Channel 6. Never seen an MCP installation like it, even CP-Alex is not as high as this is. I found Bluffton is a pain to monitor. This le...

Out and About on the NS New Castle.

I will be out and about today and early tomorrow on the NS New Castle looking for updates for the ATCS layout. Plan is to start at Blufton and work south to Richmond. I will be seeing if any of the dark sections have been turned on by the NS. An Antenna was spotted at Blufton so there is hope. Wave ...

Re: Help with odd address on Fort Wayne ATCS NS server

Looks like I may have to come up this way with my Field Setup soon.

Can anyone tell me if there any new antennas up other then these locales? Montpelier IN perhaps? Come spring I may have to swing thru this area.
