Re: CSX Incident at Porter

CSX also put one on the ground on the old PRR west of Downtown Indianapolis this afternoon too. Not a good day for CSX at all.

Re: Muncie In. 12-14-11 (ferromex units

Don't worry, I counted either 4 or 5 more of them testing at Muncie, so you should get more up there any time now.
I couldn't really tell if there was a 5th engine there or not due to the way they were parked out behind Progress Rail.

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

Yes, heard about it this past Saturday. Chicago train from what was said, but I didn't get all the details. It was even shown scheduled to run through Frankfort if that makes NO SENSE at all. I'd ask this on the Indiana board and I know someone can fill in the gaps. I was told about it, but didn't p...

Re: Richmond IN

I agree with Wayne, believe it was in the 1950's. There was a picture taken in the early 60's and it was gone and by the early 70's in videos I've seen nothing existed. I'm not sure what year the US27 overpass was built either. The water tower was still standing last time I looked, it was north of t...

Re: NS 099 w/Progress Rail Muncie units

They were bright yellow, and are cab end units.
I wasn't told if they were on flats or just used spacers for the couplers. Not sure.

NS 099 w/Progress Rail Muncie units

Apparently today NS ran a 099 north out of Muncie with the African units, should be on flat cars. Suppose to go north then across to Norfolk to the port.
You guys might keep an eye out for yellow engines on flat cars.

Re: Scanner

A Yaesu FT-250 is roughly $120, its a thousand times better than any scanner you can get. I suggest going that route (ham radio).

Nothing outside of the 2 rumors before. Add in the rumor of the directional running.

Re: 4 Trains at Muncie,Indiana

That seems to be about normal, either hot or cold in Muncie.
Trains run as NB being WB. Even on the stretch that railroad wise the train is WB, its actually heading EB by compass.
We joked that you could have a head on with 2 WB trains at Jefferson Street when NS still ran from Lima.

Re: Old PRR Panhandle between Gas City and Hartford City

It was leased by NS to RailAmerica/CERA operations. I know they had stored stuff on it east of Gas City. There was hope the paper mill at Hartford City would go back to using rail after it reopened, but so far nothing. Not sure, but I think the city of Hartford City has wanted to keep rail because o...
