Re: Amtrak's Goals

I wonder how much their cargo businesses make? The freight on buses and passenger trains used to be where the money was. The airlines make a substantial amount of revenue hauling freight. Especially the overseas routes on wide-bodies. So much more valuable is the freight business that just about ev...

Re: Great Lakes Central Passenger TC

My take on it is the project isn't as much providing a passenger service as it is providing a project to promote and vision of a future without private cars. Lease a bus and you are in business tomorrow and being in a for profit business is way different than talking about it. Lease a bus, start a ...

Re: Plymouth is now busy again??

I vividly recall seeing an Engine with "Soo Line" painted on the side of it running through Lake Odessa in early 1987 (winter months) from my 6th grade classroom. It was the first time I had seen that livery on an engine in Lake O. There may have been some running before then but I know they were ru...

Re: Tootles

I recall a concern a few years ago was the bridge, the need for inspections, cost of, results of etc. Must be the bridge is in somewhat decent shape if they are running motorcars over them, seems like for some reason a train was unable to run on the bridge though.
