Came across this article this morning. Amtrak 501, a relatively new Amtrak service train, managed to derail itself onto I-5 out on the West Coast, blocking all southbound lanes. The article below reports injuries and damage, hopefully no one got killed. The pictures are just stunning... http://www.t...

CSX Q404-07 on the ground

While on its way today, Q404-07 derailed at CP TOWNLEY on the Conrail Shared Assets. Reports of 21 cars derailed. Derailment looks to be pretty severe as it derailed in three different sections, and has caused NJT to suspend service in the area. Some other freight trains are already detouring around...

NS Portage Bridge Nearing Completion

I ran into this article yesterday. It is quite interesting, and could spell NS using the old Erie Main (Southern Tier Line) to run freight on again outside of NJT peak times. I for one, would like to see this happen, since they only run locals on it for now. I also find it odd that there's MOW equip...

I'm not sure, but I think 7294 is an SD70ACU.

Re: Union Pacific 1943 - "The Spirit"

Ditto what you guys said. It is quite an interesting unit. For boring information...Union Pacific painted this SD70AH in the special scheme to honor our troops and to commemorate the “Spirit of Union Pacific” B-17 bomber. It is former UP SD70AH #9026, built in April 2016. Interesting information Th...
