Re: Where/what is this railroad(East Terminal?)? Actual real question.

I'll give them credit for finding a niche that might work and also might not. It's interesting to follow them as they share their adventure of making this into potentially something. We do have to be honest about a few things and honest about some of their rather interesting interpretations of the s...

Re: NS Peavine talk

So those modern, efficient locos in storage have been built in the last 20 years have a large problem for shortlines and regionals, anything built after 2000 have those expensive and complicated EPA Tier regulated motors. Now if you have say $1 million dollars sitting around I'll be more than happy ...

Re: Two abandoned Columbus rail spurs

I was a student at OSU way back in early '90s and by then the track ended at Columbus Builders Supply. I don't recall there being anything left by that time other than the apparent right of ways by the shapes of the buildings. I want to say Columbus Builders Supply was occasionally getting a load of...

Re: G&W to Purchase Ohi-Rail

The line has zero customers other than car storage. Fracking sand transload went away, the line is just far enough out of the fracking area the extra distance killed the business. Other than access to Apex, which they already had, really doesn't make sense G&W bought the company. The 2 GP38-2 were p...

Don’t deflect your guilt on not saving the B&O. Is the tears of the rail “enthusiast” community that bother you the most, or the regret you could be worshipped by said enthusiastically if you had.....?

Correct on 2109. 2134- NS 5058 There is not a I&O 2104 There's only 2 true CIND locos at the moment 2001-2002. Power is shared with the I&O so it's whatever 4 axle that is over on the CIND.
