The paper railroad update thread

Unread postby Y@ » Fri Mar 06, 2009 4:02 pm

This thread will be for posting roster updates and railroad info.

Today the CMS placed an order with GE for 25 ES44AC's, the first order ever placed with GE by the CMS. These will also be the first new engines recieved by CMS since 1994. CMS has an option for 25 more if they choose. They are to be numbered 7000-7024 (7000-7049 if opted for 25 more).

CMS is bringing between 20 and 30 units out of storage by the middle of next week... should include a few former Susie Q units as well as the ex OHNR Tunnel Motors they got back in '99, painted them red, then leased them to the Florida Gulf Coast for 6 years, and have been in storage since then. Aside from that will be mostly ex BN SD40-2's.

I'll put numbers up as soon as I know anything.

(Note: Stored units are not listed on the active roster I posted already)

The LMOC will begin putting a new siding in at Okolona on the east side of the town. It will be 2 miles in length. There will also be a new siding going in west of Cecil and the older and shorter one will be removed in Antwerp sometime before the end of June.

SACR GP40 8215 (ex CSXT, in YN1 scheme) is en route to the Savannah shops for major repair and new paint after striking a semi loaded with finished home appliances at the Highway 190 crossing north of Wellston, GA. Nobody was hurt in the incident. The truck stalled on the tracks after the driver tried to negotiate around down gates. He escaped from the truck before it was hit.
