Maintenance Work

Post by rrnut282 » Thu Jun 08, 2006 9:39 pm

The description in the index suggests "places to avoid". I thought why not make a space someone going out for a day of fanning can check to see where Maintenence of Way forces are at work which will affect where and when trains run.
If this is to work, post with as much detail as you can get. Information like district, location, type of work, duration, and operation windows while work is going on will make it even better.

I saw a rail-grinder tie up at Knox on Thursday. The Chicago District will have fewer trains in the daylight until the grinder finishes working in this area. :(

I saw a loaded rail rack heading south through Bluffton Monday which is unusual. It's usually empty headed back to the welding plant outside of Atlanta. Maybe it was on its way to drop that rail.

Keith,
They put up a new sign last week along US30 that says SDI structural & rail plant. I didn't see any rail. All the trucks I saw were hauling I and H beams. I haven't seen any rail rack trains go that way, either.

Thanks for the good wishes, Keith.
I do not think becoming a Redneck requires any
training. Probably just detraining. Have you ever
detrained?
