I'm amazed that 397 is being rebuilt. Seems like when a frame is bent that its usually the death knell of a locomotive.

The current emissions standards likely have an impact on what is going to be done.

Re: Spring switches, where are they?

The east end of the siding in Grand Ledge was a spring switch until 2015. The spring was starting to wear out and after a train would “spring out” the east end, it often times wouldn’t throw itself quite all the way back over. This would result in bad signals approach the east end of Grand Ledge fr...

Re: CSX Train Locations Updates November 2020

Possibly. Or the kids just miscounted. Anyway they were only stopped for about 10 minutes. We were trying to get ahead of them again to verify lead unit number as i was sure it was 3310 but had been reported as 3340 online. They left unnoticed somehow and we didnt figure we could get ahead anylonger...

Re: Why Amtrak not running 110 MPH

Crossings, crossings, crossings. Without ABSOLUTE grade crossing separation , the higher speeds maybe a ways off. The Milwaukee Road was not the only one to do all of that. They were hitting the Century mark on the Detroit line between Detroit and Toledo on jointed rail. I worked with a couple of e...

And yes, D708 finally picked up the 82 cars on Friday that had been there since Tuesday, as well as the 20 cars in the Ogihara run around and went back to Lansing with 102 cars.
Amusing. A daily local with 102 cars.
