CB&C

In the may 31st edition of The Echo had a cover story on Cincinnati, Bluffton and Chicago rr with a title of "The very brief history of Bluffton's ghost railroad". I have to say It gave me a laugh, storys of how the railroad stole land, and disrupted competition by rolling boxcars off the track.

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

For years people saying that ethanol takes more money to make than energy it produces. Name me a fuel that doesnt do that? Plus corn soon will not be the primary bio material that could...
