Re: CF&E Van Wert Operations

HEADS UP Ft.Wayne! I was in town here in Warsaw and caught a Ft.Wayne bound train on CF&E with more windmill parts with empty rail train on back, If they drop empty rail train at SDI you have some time, I ended up shooting a video of this train at Van Ness road west of Pierceton, so be on the lookout!

Re: Work in the Junction area.

Interesting, along the CF&E out west of Warsaw along old US 30 I noticed trees laying down that seemed to been pushed over with a bulldozer or something, but it wasn't done all along there. If you drive by the bridge over the creek east of Atwood, the tree growing out of bridge is still there even. ...

Re: Train Derailment

Just curious, did they send an engine east and pull whatever moved slowly away or did someone have to go near the fire and check before pulling? Or was it the rear end of train and remaining cars naturally got pulled away from scene before coming to a stop?

Re: December Out and About

I not long ago found out somewhere online why the CTC ends in Three Rivers, as the actual traffic went east from Three Rivers and the CTC continued that way until line was abandoned, but the CTC remained from Three Rivers to Elkhart. I found this info looking for possible dates for antennas on the s...
