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

After he and his son get all the trees out of the way the next big project is replacing the ties which is going to be a real task. Then getting the rails to all line up. I will give it to the guy both of them are really trying to make this happen two guys who one a railroad track not a short rail co...

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

Great question why not a gas operated chainsaw a powerful one at that? Takes seconds to get these small trees knocked down with a gasoline chainsaw. If he is going to buy all of this equipment for thousands of buys might as well spend a few more bucks and get a good chainsaw. Maybe he wants to prote...

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

Interesting video watched it last night. So it appears he is going to store cars here and the G&W is going to pick them up and deliver them. First he is going to do plenty of work on the rails as G&W made some suggestions and comments but it looks as he does have a plan and moving forward.

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

The CCET here in Cincinnati running on the Peavine stores hundreds of cars tankers being the favorite yet in recent months they are storing other cars as well. They have plenty of siding to store cars and it is a major revenue maker for them doing slow times. If this guy only has up to 3/4 of a mile...

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

Thanks Dave that clears that up. I just don't understand where they are going to make any money on this short track. Only one customer there and G&W services them. Not sure where they intend to get another customer unless someone is hauling stone gravel rock maybe will park a few cars on their track...

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

Dave it appears where he is digging the ditch is near the pond or retention pond not sure which it is. From Google earth if looks like a pond but either way when that pond fills up the water must run by the tracks. He has his equipment fairly far from the tracks which I would think infringes on the ...

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

Interesting video yesterday on the new one mile railroad doing ditch clearing to move water. I thought it was kind of strange that they are off the tracks with large equipment digging. Wonder how much of the property they own? Thought it was only the tracks the guy bought. Now he is trying to divert...

Re: NS Peavine talk

NS has brought over 90 cars for storage to the CCET siding at Clare Yard last week. All have been moved this past week up east. This is the most mixed car drop off I have seen other than tankers. Looks like concrete hoppers for the most part and some tankers. At one point all the siding down at Clar...

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

I have been looking at this track from Google Earth. It appears to be only one customer on the line and most likely G&W does their service. Not sure where he is going to get additional business unless he is going to do car storage. He only has one mile at the most. Surely he has a game plan in progr...

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

Jim that would really rock the boat. I know a guy who lives next to the tracks here in Cincinnati and a nice residential neighborhood how loves trains and he gets to see a few a day from his house. IN the back of his house he stores whistles train whistles from as far back as 100 years ago. He is a ...

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

The guy has something up his sleeve. He is talking transloading and having a customer yet he only has one mile or less of track. Then I think he is talking about adding more track in the future. Now he is talking about getting an engine which is going to be some bucks. Since that line has not been u...

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

Yes I have been watching it as well. I would say Dayton as they were going to an auction in Springfield so Ohio for sure. Don't think it is the CCET but think an old CSX or NS track that didn't service anyone for a few years. The tracks we not in very good shape trees growing in the middle of the tr...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Well my buddy Heypal which most of you know on this thread received a cool Christmas gift from a unknown person last week. He came home from work and had a gift on this front porch wrapped in Christmas paper. So he took it in the house. He said it was six feet high felt like a door of some kind and ...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Big Bob think the new power is sitting on the sidelines as it needs some work before it can be put into service. That is what I heard this past week. Not the best paint job but it does stand out I must say. Plenty of cars were on the siding east of Clare Yard this week for sure the line is much busi...

Re: NS Peavine talk

It will be interesting when the movement of stone comes east and the new business opens in 2022 that is going to need a four to five days movement of freight cars east and west plus the Ag and other business and storage on the peavine will the CCET use the rails in Clare Yard? I just see they will n...

Re: NS Peavine talk

Not sure if the CCET wants to get much capital from these old engines but they need some power motors to move heavy stone. They don't have the money to invest in new equipment so they go for older outdated. The CCET is going to start pulling plenty of stone going west from the 76 mile mark they need...

Re: NS Peavine talk

I just received an email on the new power for CCET seen above. AS far as i know the new power is not in service yet. I haven't seen it down here at Clare Yard or on the siding in recent weeks. Maybe it needs some work before they send it out for service . I think the NS crew said it came all the way...
