I'm open to offers, we are interested, we would pay for the north switch, and you pay for the rest.. Also we would have control of it as well (correct?)

Also I have forgot to establish a main dispatching center I believe.. (been a while and I cant believe I forgot :lol: ) Main center for dispatching is in Durand (center of system) with additional dispatchers in Mackinaw and Toledo.

Ill have to look over my info to create my divisions, but I shall have 3, and the Toledo dispatcher will also dispatch MoTown rail for that area

No, MQT would still control everything from your SAS to your NAS. The approaches are linked so we know when you are coming.

I'm thinking $20,000 to install, not including your north switch. I plan on only having it be 20mph anyways, so none of my 60-mph turnout fun stuff.

Thing is then, can we get passenger trackage rights from AnnPere to Grayling, where our current TRs start? We'd love to run some trains that way as an alterinitave to rebuilding our Evart-Clare line.

As in real life, the AA never controlled AnnPere.

Can the GR&P have trackage rights again over your line between Durand and Toledo again? The trains would be:

S100 - Saginaw to Walbridge - Mixed Freight - Daily
S101 - Walbridge to Saginaw - Mixed Freight - Daily
S102 - Saginaw to Lang Yard - Mixed Freight - Mon thru Sat
S103 - Lang Yard to Saginaw - Mixed Freight - Mon thru Sat
S104 - Midland to Stanley - Mixed Freight/Chemical - Mon thru Sat
S105 - Stanley to Midland - Chemical/Mixed Freight - Mon thru Sat
S106 - Durand to Walbridge - Intermodal/Mixed Freight - Daily
S107 - Walbridge to Durand - Intermodal/Mixed Freight - Daily
S108 - Durand to Cicero - Intermodal - Daily
S109 - Cicero to Durand - Intermodal - Daily
S110 - Pontiac to Walbridge - Autorack - Tue thru Sun
S111 - Pontiac to Chicago - Autorack - Wed thru Mon
S112 - Saginaw to Walbridge - Mixed Freight/Autorack - Daily
S113 - Walbridge to Saginaw - Autorack - As Needed
S114 - Saginaw to Walbridge - Mixed Freight - As Needed

If I can have the trackage rights, how long can my trains be? Intermodal traffic from Durand may grow soon, but I'm not sure. If I can't get the rights, it's no big deal, I can just work out a interchange agreement with CN or another railroad.

GLCH now owns the former CN/GTW line through Durand. You are welcome to interchange loads with us, we can discuss it on this thread.
