Re: NS Peavine talk

Since I have been off I have checked out the CCET at Ancor and they have been rather active going east and back west in the afternoon to Clare. I can see of late they are haul more cars so the Ag must be pretty busy along with the paper plant in Batavia. Plus plenty of storage going out east The I&O...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Correct been reading this information today. The CCET will move 1500 cars for a week for 30 plus weeks. The CCET is making a major investment on the line with Hanson and the Ag as well. Moving gravel and grain and the new transloadrers will be a major plus of the line. They may need to do some exten...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Mike sorry haven't been posting for a few weeks. Yes there was a incident with Brian and a CCET employee up in Batavia I think. That issue is under investigation. Think the CCET took Brian's phone wouldn't give it back. The police were called and now everything is under investigation. I found out a ...

Re: NS Peavine talk

It was a great afternoon so I said why not get the bike out and take a ride up to Plum Road. So I headed east checking out the Peavine tracks going down side roads most likely the same ones Jaw Tooth films the CCET on you tube. I notice out east there are several tankers on sidings way out east Past...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Northstar right you are. I have been rather busy at work but have been in Newtown playing some golf during the week and the CCET has been running nearly every day going back to Clare at least three days a week. I have noticed they the Ag must be very busy as the grain loads are on a average of 15 ca...

Re: NS Peavine talk

I have been out of the loop here but I do know that Northstar walks his dog down by Clare Yard a few times a week and does talk to the NS crew and CCET crew down there as well. So the info he receives comes from the crew. The CCET can request more rail expansion from NS if they want to past Plum Roa...

If I knew that you could have brought me something back. There is a shop up there this guy holding something for me. Oh well I will be up there in April. Ch...

Re: I&O Oakley Yard

I stopped by on the way home tonight there was a large crane there putting the car back on the track. Kind of interesting to watch. Looks like there is going to be some track repair there as the car dragged a good 75 yards down the track before the stop was made. Looks like three cars went off the t...

Question on a Ohio Railroad

There is a closed railroad in Cincinnati that is owned by the City of Cincinnati. It might be the only railroad that is still owned by an City in the USA. The name is CNO&TP. Some railroad fans say it is or was the park of Southern Railroad. Yet from what I have found it is not. My buddy has an old ...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Happy New Year Northstar and to all railfans out there. Northstar thanks for the report! I have been pretty busy in December at work but have had the chance to get out the last week to see a little of the Peavive activity. They continue to be rather busy this winter. I have noticed several cars on s...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Glad to see you joined. The new CCET railroad has rebanded the name to Cincinnati Eastern Railroad in the last two months. They now have a few new investors and are getting an upgrade in two different engines that have been sent to Cincinnati. After NS left the rail they ran most of the rail busines...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Interesting you say that last week I saw the I&O putting down weed killed on tracks they rarely use in the yard some that looked like they couldn't even hold more than one empty tanker. CSX NS all use weed killer matter of fact NS used some down at Clare two weeks ago. Weed killer is cheap when boug...

Re: IORY South End Part Five

I noticed tonight that Rencome tower must have had a fire or lightning hit the building. I only caught it out of the corner of my eye but it looked like the roof and was black and the windows at the top of the building were black like there was a fire.

Northstar good info. Haven't been keeping up with the new owners and the old CCET. Just what I read on the facebook page. I have been pretty busy at work. I was over in Newtown yesterday on a motorcycle ride noticed the tracks are very shinny so I take it they must be using the tracks. After this mo...

New website will be up and running in a few weeks. CCET LLC purchased 2 GE B36-7s that should be on property in the ...

French Lick Trains

Heading over to French Lick to play some golf in a few weeks. I see there is a train depot there. Was wondering if it is still in use for passenger service and if there are any freight trains that still run there or close to that area. Is there a rail yard there that I can watch trains without getti...
