That's a small yard. With the increased business at King it's got to be congested. Can you imagine what would happen if Amway's rail traffic every increased to where they used to be.

C&IM SD20 #18 is sitting in Marquette Rail Manistee Yard. Didn't know why it was there, but it's one of the last in original paint.

It was transferred to MQT earlier this year. Unfortunately it suffered a major failure when MQT got it running and it sounds like it will be scrapped.


How long do you expect it to stay in Manistee before being "Scrapped?" I know someone that could go to Manistee, but not until Mid June! Please stay C&IM SD20 #81!!!! :cry:

Here's a photo, 2007, of CIM 81 on Tazewell & Peoria in Peoria, Illinois (Craig McGregor photo): Image

GRE locomotive and a line if cars is parked for the night, west Alden Nash/Segwun crossing south of Lowell, kind of an unusual place to leave it. Plus the 2 yard tracks south of town are full. And it looks like a line of Amway cars in the Ann Street yard. Running out of tracks!
