Re: West Michigan RR Abandonment Petition Coming

To bring in more business and expand?

The track ends just shy of 56th street. Its just under a mile between 681 and end of track. Technically anything East of 681 is considered Lawrence.

Re: New hobby shop - Troy, MI

Not surprised one bit. I stopped by in April last. The prices were just that - insane. I mean, Old Bluebox locomotives, for 50+ or better... Not a thing was marked down there. They did have a decent supply selection though.

Re: CN Local rescue mission

I am not really sure who told you that one, but that cant be further from the truth. Injectors are a common wear item, and top out around 200$ each. - He who has run plenty of large engines out of fuel, taken the diesel bath getting the fuel back, and never once had to replace injectors because of ...

Re: CN Derailment in Port Huron Tunnel

You are making a lot of very unfair assumptions. No one knows the cause of the derailment yet & it's probably more like than not that the DP unit had absolutely nothing to do with the derailment. CN has been running DP through the tunnel for a couple years now, (I would be one who would actually kn...

Re: CN Derailment in Port Huron Tunnel

That freight train that derailed in the tunnel this past Friday morning were operated by a London, ON train and engine crew. Not true. Pretty common to have trains go through to Sarnia. Battle Cr...

Is there even an investigation? I thought they only did those if there was loss of life or a significant environmental oops.

LC Howard in Kalamazoo. I think it is Cottonseed they get in woodchip cars.

Graphic Packaging/Treehouse in Battle Creek is switched by CN only as far as I know. Never, ever seen NS switching those.
