Re: Michigan G&W Loco Roster News, Updates & Info Thread

IMRR 81 was never transferred to LTEX. It was stored LUGO on Indiana Southern until G&W decided to send it north due to lack of coal business on ISRR.

Re: Where's the coal?

No SD40's came from ISRR. There were 2 GP40-3's that were supposed to go to the ISRR but G&W rerouted them to HESR.

Why not buy both? Hoodie for cold weather work sessions and t shirt for warm weather work sessions.

Re: New Coach at the Southern Michigan Railroad!

The comparison between a nonprofit that actually owns the equipment that the donations goes towards to fix up and a railcar that is individually privately owned and on loan to a non profit is not an apples to apples comparison. Thanks though.

Re: New Coach at the Southern Michigan Railroad!

So is the car owned by the "Friends" or a private individual as stated in earlier posts? Seems like solicting for donations on a privately owned car is wrong. If the owner couldn't afford to buy, transport and restore the car why should others pay to fix up his/her toy?

Re: GLC 391 & 389

All the engines are needed but keeping the currently operating engines serviced, operating, and chasing their issues are priority.
389 has generator and electrical issues.

Maxwell, Before commenting on something please stop and think instead of posting just to hear yourself talk... The berks for comfort were never meant to run tender first but from an operational stand point it is no different. For years and years the 1225 has run in reverse. Leaves on the rail would ...

Re: TSBY Railroad

GLC has zero TSBY trackage? Hmmm seems like that would be false seeing as how they bought out TSBY and operate the same rails TSBY did. Now if you're talking the original cluster then that statement would be correct.

Granted but weekends are now Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and all the fun things happen on Friday, Saturday and Sunday still.
