Re: Question about Triple Crown in Fort Wayne

That is why the Hadley Connection was put in by NS to reliveve all of the congestion at Mike and Park.

Re: auto carrier on the old cloverleaf

Yes. The GM truck plant in Ft.Wayne is on shutdown until July 13th because of all of the Goverment Crap going on. I would like to find some of the Wabash Covered Hoppers that you guys are taking about! I seen one about 7 years ago on a tank train on the Wabash line heading to St. L. Kevin
