Re: PRR signals on the CFE?

When in Indiana you may also want to visit downtown Marion,IN. NS has not touched the signals there yet and there are 2 mast style signals at cp 78 and then a nice mix of a dwarf, a pedestal dwarf, and 2 mast style position lights at the diamond at cp 79. Traffic there is not the best, but beteen 36...

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

Now catching a train in light in marion is the fun part! Some days it's not hard,others forget it.lol
That's the reason I chased 369 from Elkhart to Marion a couple months ago when 8025 was leading it on a sunny afternoon.

Re: CP 421 Upgrade

One thing I noticed about the new CP 421 is the platform and lack of space on other side prevented the conversion from electric to gas switch heaters which seemed to be the standard practice everywhere there were electric heaters.

Re: CP 421 Upgrade

That car scanners been there a few years or more, maybe they replaced them if they look like work was done recently.

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

most wbs are NS intermodals, only rarely does a NS train run eb, but 3 or 4 wbs of NS make the ebs rare, and usually CF&E when they do run. last i heard 282 and 216 run cf&e and sometimes 240.

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

Look close west of town,as of now there are 5 signals with only the old position light one currently in use! Atwood and the one between the newest one and the one in your picture have notched markers so i assume those 2 which were added when the one you picture were were for some sort of ctc passing...

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

OK, thought youd figure this out by those hints, the really new distant signals on CF&E are just east of the creek west of town and across from lake city bank in Winona lake, look to be a green or yellow only , so atleast they know when they have signal once cut over.

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

Looks like 6 position lights fall when Warsaw is done, but also if the CF&E track thru town is kept up they will probably be able to do 40 over diamond on cf&e.

Re: Norfolk Southern Marion Branch

The cutover on the branch must be pushed back a ways, the trailers at cp 21 and milford jct have left and there seems to be a lot of work and trailers now along chicago district east of claypool to ft wayne.
