Very Nice! Looks very similar to the Illinois Terminal scheme.

ICS 208
Thanks! 1000 is in Maumee right now actually. Will go back to the ICS tomorrow. State has allowed us to swap engines. ICS 208 is the only one not painted in ICS Green. All other ICS locos are sparkly clean and green.

There will be a lot more in the near future on the MSRR. ICS 404 is supposed to bring an auto rack train for the WE soon too. They want to know if you can take it to them.

How soon? I need to talk to the WE guys about it yet. My guess is it won't be a problem, since they'll get extra traffic, too. Might be a little slow going, too, since track speed is 30mph between Delphos and Carey. We are gonna work on it this Spring.

When we secure the track in Indiana there will be one train a day in each direction, bound for Cleveland.

Alright let us know! Also ICS 404 and ICS 208 have been leased to the MSRR until all U30Cs and C424s can be returned from being painted in Chicago.

Just so you guys know, Penn Central is the designated operator of the state owned Cloverleaf trackage from Bluffton, IN to Ohio City, OH and we are currently in negotiations with the states of Indiana and Ohio to purchase this segment from them and add it to our system. If you guys purchase back the rest of the Cloverleaf and want trackage rights, we'll grant them for you.
