Re: Wabash Indiana Video & One With a 150plus cars & a DPU :)

One take away for me getting a few video minutes is they don't waste any time in that town! In my town the speed limit might be in the 10-15mph range. They were flying in Wabash as comapared! And with these newer configuration massively long trains....that as to be harder on everything from track to...

Re: NS SD70 Series Units All Stored In Roanoke, VA

SO what happened to their business where all these locomotives are now no longer needed? Are new ones coming on line? Or did their customer base shrink? Or they doing that very long train thing where there will be less trains to cover the same customer base? That is a lot over units to just dump unl...

NYS&W Switching in Cortland with 10,000hp. And WHAT is 3016?

Have a bunch of "catches" to build into a video from a trip to Wabash Indiana....BUT came home and while doing my regular chainsaw repair parts hunt, came across this train working in Cortland NY. For what ever reason the lesson is the "impromptu" always seems to work out better than planned. SO Sna...

Re: Snaggeg this gp38-2 a NS unit switching for NYS&W

A couple of possibilities, there are the two "energy" companies. They sell oil & propane. But most likely Sute-Cote, the regional big boy in road paving. They have their Asphalt plant there and also have a straight oil for oil & stone a mile or two up the road. Get their raw materials by rail and pr...

5, count then FIVE playing yo-yo in Cortland

They went cross the river and I just didn't have time to catch the real action. Looked like they were switching cars across where they deliver to Sute-Cote. My best guess was either they were disassembling or building a train, didn't hang around to see exactly what....BUT did get a minute of diesel ...
