Re: West Michigan RR Abandonment Petition Coming

I recall Pioneer buying the West Michigan out of bankruptcy for $500,000 total in cash and stock. They sold some real estate in Paw Paw for $300,000. Not sure what they may gotten in terms of scrap for the rails they tore up. I think the failure to get the plant in Paw Paw to ship by rail was their ...

JAIL Question

I went by Mason today and the engine house door was open. I saw something with CV (Central Vermont). Is this another locomotive or another piece of equipment? I just got a partial look since the door was not completely open.

Re: Napoleon, Defiance and Western: The Definitive Thread

The August 2020 edition of Trains is about Ohio. There is an article about the IORY and a short article about the ND&W. What I found interesting about the ND&W article was the roster listed. Apparently the GP-16s have been moved off the property. The current roster is: 105 GP-9 Gettysburg 2026 GP-20...

Grand Rapids Question

My daughter is thinking about moving into the Bicycle Factory apartment on Front St SW. There's a rail line that runs past it. Looks like the CSX line from the CSX yard to Ann St. How many trains a day does this CSX segment in Grand Rapids see?

Thank you.
