Re: Pine Jct switches and crossovers removed

The Pine to 501 connection was part of the original passenger route into the City. It’s a mess to try an explain, but the B&O crossed over the NYC to go over the canal at hick on its own bridge, it then crossed the river next to the PRR and NYC only to dive under both and connect to the Rock to get ...

Looks like CN Crossing, Tower, West Sprigsborro, Fort Wayne, or whatever the heck it's called now is cut over finally.

Re: New Control Point CP Indy at MP B501.5

There is a new control point 116th Street at B509.20 on Main 1 with a single switch to the west, but the screen shows "no track" for the spur. Quick look on the latest Google Earth scan shows a nice clean ballast sub grade from 509.20 to 110 but that is it. Must be part of some future 510 reconfigu...

NS Chicago flexibillity.

All this has been happening in various posts below. But it is clear to me that NS has a goal with all the recent Chicago changes. Trains from the various Chicago endpoints are no longer "locked into a route" What I mean by this is, let's take for example Landers. Trains for that yard were traditiona...

Re: New Control Point CP Indy at MP B501.5

The approach blocks seem to operate like the Amtrak line at Porter in that the approach bits seem to be one way and artificial conditions sent from the other signal system to the NS system.

Re: New Control Point CP Indy at MP B501.5

Looks like on the CSS&SB side we can see the four signals, the two OS circuits, a request for each track, and an ack for each request.

No approach circuits or views of the dang gauntlet tracks. Probably for the better, they would have been a nightmare.

If you need help figuring out which say the south shore trains are going.

Doesn't show freights. But it should give you a big head start

I am going to need to catch the local. I forget the symbol... But I -think- he comes down out of Chicago, but even if it comes from the west. They use the wye to turn the train.

Re: NS Kankakee work

There should be three separate individual signal/stop pairs based on the drawing - 4, 6, and 8. One would think that 2E and 2N would each have their own Clear bit with a shared Stop bit. I suppose that one could program the 6 signals to both show Clear from a single bit if the routes didn't conflic...
