Re: Central Michigan Railway History & Roster

if you'd like to add it, the 9209 and 9210 both went to Continentel (sp) Grain and barge. One is at Naples Illinois, and the other is at another location in Illinois. both still in CMGN paint which CGB adopted for a few other highhood geeps.

Re: Central Michigan Railway History & Roster

Another couple corrections. 4502 ran for a few years as a CMGN unit as well before the 8903 blew its prime mover, the 4502 "donated its PM to the 8903 since it was already painted. The 8903 is in mexico, not the 8905 which was scrapped sadly (i have one of its numberboards next to me) The 4065 went ...

Re: CSX Locomotive Roster News, Updates & Information Thread

thats what I'd thought as well, but all i can find, and the diesel shop (stop laughing) still shows them as active as former SD35M's. i can't find any pictures of the SD40-2 variant.

Re: Huron & Eastern 3868

So 3868 is sold to MEI once the 2169 comes up. And after that, i believe I may have helped it move onto its next life. Rock Island Rail is interested in the unit as it and its sisters are all originally rock island units. so keep your fingers crossed. i'm to let them know when the unit departs for M...

Re: GLC Acquiring SD35's?

Per the GLC mechanic on another board, the Dead 35's are going to begin a program to upgrade them and rebuild them. my guess, and its only that, is to Dash 3 standards like the SD35s they just got.

Re: Rails on the Road

So i saw these trucks, or a couple like them around 12Pm on I75 northbound in Bay City. they were spine like trailers and only had 1 or 2 sections of rail per trailer. I'd guess 50 to 60 foot lengths.

At least 4 AC44's have been sold to CP rail for parts. I wonder if the remains will be scrapped or sent to wabtec to be rebuilt like Cp's own AC units?

Re: CN SD60F Status?

well, it looks as if 15 of the former CN SD60F units will be saved. The following is from the new loconotes group page and at least one of these units has been spotted in transit with ACWR reporting marks, as I questioned as to weather or not they were simply going into storage for someone. ACWR is ...

Re: Propsed Steel manufacturing in/near Durand

we have the room along the Saginaw river. Ships can bring in the iron ore, drop it here. i'm sure HESR wouldn't mind the haul from Bay City to Durand of the iron trains. Just a random thought.
