Maumee Southern Railroad

Unread postby DT&I » Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:44 pm

A class three shortline that runs from Delphos,OH to Maumee, OH hauling mostly 20-25 car grain trains from Central Soya in Delphos(Most of the business is to the PC) and other places including McClure,OH, Grand Rapids, OH, and Providence, OH. The railroad interchanges with:
PC at Delphos
TSCR at Providence
TSCR/WCSR at Maumee

This line is the former NKP Cloverleaf, then NW, then TSt.L, and now MSRR. Roster is:
6940, 5773, 4727 - GP40
7738, 9381 - S2
485, 567, 884, 9382, 477 - C424
472, 48 - C636
100, 993 - U30C

Yards are located at Grand Rapids(Classification of cars) and Delphos(Run Arounds and Grain) and they also have access to TSCR's Riverfront yard in Maumee. Trains are:
G001 - Delphos - Maumee Grain - Weekdays
G002 - Maumee - Delphos Switching Local - Weekdays
S003 - Waterville - Muamee Stone - Weekdays
Y004 - Grand Rapids Yard Job, works interchange withh TSCR across the Maumee River - Saturday
Y005 - Delphos Yard Job, works PC interchange and prepares grain to go north to make switching easier on G001's crew.

The number of power is so units can be rested as often as possible and inspected, saves fuel when you don't have to fill the same loco up every couple weeks, you can just get one thats already filled. The alco power is mostly ex-LV and CBRY. The geeps come from BNSF/ATSF/CR. The S2's are ex-C&O. The U30C's are ex-SOO.

You realize that this line is abandoned in real life from Grand Rapids to Delphos, or are you presuming that NW/NS kept it open or at least in place until you created this fictional railroad? You've got a lot of rebuilding to do, including putting the bridge back in over the Auglaize river, putting the diamonds back in at Continental, Holgate, and Delphos in addition to regrading and relaying the track and roadbed otherwise.

Actually awhile ago there was a railroad called the TSt.L that bought the Cloverleaf after NW from St. Louis to Toledo. The TSt.L went bankrupt and sold off the line in portions, AW now owns part of it in Indiana. Plus there is a new stone customer in Waterville(In real life, they want the TLEW to service them). There is a lot left in place in Indiana, Illinois that the government owns becuase no one bought it.

Others will begin soon.

Speed limit is mainly 15 to 20 MPH on the line.

Y004-01 is getting crewed so it can sort some empty hoppers and put trains together so when Monday rolls around locos can grab their cars and go. Power is S2 #7738.

Should have the first of some DERR interchange headed your way. Two cuts of 8 loaded CH's (1 from Pandora, 1 from Jenera) will be picked up tomorrow, making 16 cars.

Good, I'll give NREX a call then and see if PC can lease them and add them to the small roster of 5 or so that I currently own.

Im sure they would let you, no one else seems to want ALCo's, but no one else checks into the details, these C636's were rebuilt totally in 2005 and pack a more fuel efficient mover that has 4,000 HP. I could do a drawing to show you the differences if you want.
