Distributed Power

Just saw a BNSF intermodel westbound on the La Plata railcam with 300 cars. 2 locos leading, 3 in the middle and 2 more on the end. Watched it on the Ft Madison cam and again on the La Plata cam. And it was making 60 through La Plata.

Re: Did GTW Acquire PC Track in Oxford?

I worked for the GTW in Pontiac during the late 60s. I don't know what we owned in Oxford, but we ran a PO and N [Pontiac, Oxford and Northern] local that way several times a week, and they brought back a lot of gravel from the Oxford gravel pits.

Re: Trestle Burns in WA fire

Could have been torched. Seems to be evenly burning from side to side and top to bottom. I could believe anything in Washington state.

Re: Anyone on here a boat nerd?

Here's a good site for boat nerds. It's a Facebook site for the Cason J Calloway laker. The guy works on the boat as a helmsman, and answers questions and posts pictures of their trips and lake conditions.

New Railcars

Watching the La Plata railcam lately, on Monday and Tuesday this week, I saw what appeared to be a BNSF coal train, with the usual coal gons. But they all had some kind of cover on them, with what appeared to be vents in the end of the lids. Never saw this before. One in each direction. Anyone know ...

Re: Crude Oil storage in Railcars

The glut of crude, including millions of barrels stored in ships, didn't stop them from raising gas prices 50 cents a gallon overnight. Thursday prices averaged $1.39 and today they are $1.89.
