Re: Windmill Offloading

Re: Campgrounds

Re: snow question

C F & E Defect Detector

Just heard a CF&E Defect Detector. Reported at MP 291 advising no defects, 31 axles and 25 MPH.
I have never heard this before. It was very clear and loud. I believe that this would be located between Van Wert and Delphos, near Middle Point.
Progress!!
