missing signal?

im just guessing, yet I think I know why I have seen so many northbound trains stopped just before silver street in bluffton. The other day while on a country cruise I noticed that they recently removed a signal. The foundation is there and there are still wires exposed.

What do the tracks leading into the gm facility serve as. Do they unload or load components from boxcars inside?

I was amazed how many people are misled into fearing something they don't understand nor try to. These conspiracy theorist believed that the building heaters at the beach grove shops are furnaces for mass killing. I have seen these units I don't even think they have the btu's for anything over 98*F....

Was this the train next to the train town boxcars? If so I rode it as a child, actually maybe 13 years ago. I was very impressed by what they had built in the woods. That still kinda inspires me to build a 1 gauge railroad, later on in life when I have money. :D

I love the hobby stores in fort wayne, but I dont like wasting the gas just to browse, and looking at trains online just doesnt cut it for me. Yeah the prices at phills and hobbyland are cheap but, 1st place hobbies has pretty good deals, and what I would spend in gas can go toward more purchases. :...
