Apparently we got some real morons here... Keep on the lookout for a cheap set of these on Craigslist all the sudden.

Re: Underside of a train - watching the truck on bad track

Looks like Bulgaria, he has a few of those videos, pretty cool.

Too bad that they apparently don't even take care of their graffiti covered passenger cars over there. :(

Re: Michigan Shore, GRE & Coopersville and Marne

Come on out to C&M and I can show you around! We might even put you to work if you're not careful! (assuming you're 18) :)

I'm usually there pretty much every weekend.

Re: Coopersville & Marne Railway Questions

It's me. :) Not to worry.

We were shoving the blue boxcar back that day for veterans day so I got to play with 3049, at least in the brakeman capacity.

New Mexico Semaphore Pics

Hello everyone, I'm still alive! I'm also still stuck in New Mexico. I miss Michigan a lot, that's for sure. Anyway, my parents recently took a road trip up to Colorado, and stopped to take some pictures on my request. These babies are still standing up around Wagon Mound. Thought you guys might enj...

A Kansas town tries to keep the train coming through

Will see this more and more. I imagine Santa Fe and Lamy, NM might get involved with this too since it's the same line. There is a little tiny glimmer of hope that they will keep that line open, but for some reason I doubt it. :cry: http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/13/opinion/greene-garden-city-station/in...

Can this PLEASE mean that they stop forcing diesels into the consists? :shock:

Re: Amtrak Service In Jeopardy in Northern New Mexico

Only Amtrak. The problem is, without them taking that route, Amtrak would have to go north from Belen to get to Albuquerque, and then go south again to get back out. I happened to be in Lamy, MI for an unrelated reason, and while there, Lamy turned into a bustling town when Amtrak was there, then ba...

Just to clear things up (or make them more muddy)... The switch for penn jct. is actually further down the line then the bridge is, and it met up with the line further north a bit.
