Re: New Info: CSX and NS/CF&E at Bucyrus

You are correct gtwtd3. I should have made myself clear on that. It will happen for NS no matter what. Have you heard anything on this hang up with CSX? I've read some of your posts on another forum and they have been pretty accurate. I also wanted to say my friend Bob didn"t say it that way. That w...

Question: About Cargill 2-bay hoppers

Last week I was waiting for a CF&E train to pass a crossing in Van Wert and wondered what the Cargill 2-bay covered hoppers carry. I noticed that the loaded weight was 234,700, 234,800 and 235,400 . These cars had slightly different loaded weights. Probably depending on when they were built. Their l...

New Info: CSX and NS/CF&E at Bucyrus

i talked to Bob who works for NS today and he said that CSX has slowed down the process at Bucyrus. CSX owns a little piece of land around where the connector will be built. Bob said that CSX won't sell the land to NS. He doesn't believe it will deter NS from getting this done. It may take more time...

Has CSX thrown wrench into NS/CF&E at Bucyrus

Heard from my railfanning buddy Bill today that CSX has possibly thrown a wrench into the NS/CF&E connection at Bucyrus. Bill talked to 2 CF&E employees at Van Wert today that were checking the bridge on the old CN just north of the junction of the Pennsy/CN. The one man told him this. He didn't kno...

Re: NS Bucyrus, OH new connection with CF&E.

Just wanted to add a few things to my original post. The NS guys in Bucyrus we talked to thought that NS could try and buy the old PRR in time. They figured we will use the old Pennsy and CSX barely does [grain trains]. If not that, a long term lease. I was wondering couldn't the STB or whatever its...

NS Bucyrus, OH new connection with CF&E.

This is my first post and wanted to let you know that there is going to be a new connecting track at Bucyrus, OH with the CF&E. I have heard the possibility of this connection before. A friend and I went railfanning. I suggested we go to Bucyrus first. So we did. What we saw was not much. But we did...
