@DT&I
Can do. The CSE has to sort through the mountians of trouble left by the C&C and hopefully by what the MOW are telling us have the line open by Friday, Monday at the latest.

How many Marquette Ballast Trains do you need?

Also, how long are the leases on those GP35s?

We did get the two E units out of the tunnel it was hard work but at least we can get them out the passengers cars come out later tonight or tomorrow morning. The two E units are heading for the Carolina Southern rails at Ashville NC ut from the tunnel to the CS at Ashville NC its a trucking company.

They were in a tunnel? Was there a portal into the tunnel? Was there a number on the tunnel portal?

O/T: a Tunnel Portal is the stone entrance way into a tunnel.

Yes there are portals and the number was 1892 (the date it was completed) but the tunnel number is actually tunnel 10 of 15 tunnels in that area of the line!

The shops for my railroad, the High Point and Rome Railroad, build new locomotives or rebuild GP60s. We have the 45-CWDC (4500 HP, 6 Axles, Wide Nose, DC Traction motors), the 45-CWAC (4500 HP, 6 Axles, Wide Nose, AC Traction Motors), and B38AC rebuilds (GP60 rebuilds, 4 axles, 3800 HP, AC Traction Motors). At one time we were offering a switcher but that never took off so we've retired that. We're based out of High Point, GA so we could get your locomotives to Charlotte or Cincinatti pretty quickly via NS.

Okay we will talk about it tomorrow morning as we have figure out where the a half of mike track was (it's now underwater and supposedly there is passenger cars down there from the accident that killed the C&C! Now these are rumors from old time employees and it could be true. Lets meet up in Ashville and we will drive the line tomorrow morning.

As of 6:20 the GP35s have arrived and are being put to work hauling work trains. Crews already love them and they sayy they are better than their beloved GP10 29. Today plans are to get track built from Ashville to Tunnel 10 and Tunnel 10 to the Tennessee/ West Virginia border. Also coming in the way of purchased power is a GP18 from the M&N.

Probably did they said they would be put on the hottest train southbound :P. The crews love the power they have as they can use one of them as the yard goat at Undercliff yard. We also have 7 GP9s coming from the DT&I. It had been a busy morning for the MOW forces as they went on duty at 4am and are planning on working till 5pm. 3 GP18s are coming from the M&N

I put that power on GRCI, which departed GR early yesterday at 10pm and got to Cincy at 6am but its not the hottest train on the railroad, those are the mail trains and Amtrak :)

If you're interested, we could send you a 45-CWAC and a 45-CWDC for you to test to see if you want to buy some. PC placed an order for 50 of each so if you want to test more than two they might would let you test some of theirs.
