Ex-TPW Watseka trains?

Unread post by pakarinen »

Spent some time in Watseka a few weeks ago and saw a couple G&W (ex-TPW) trains crawling through town. Are there any scheduled trains or is traffic all as-needed? Is there a typical frequency of movements through town?

Seriously?? I went to Gilman and didn't see a freakin thing! No TPW isnt really scheduled. Theres an Indy local that runs 5 days a week but where it goes those days is anyones guess... could go east could go west. CSX grain trains show up whenever and the junk train from East Peoria I believe runs out of Fairburry now. Wish I knew more so I could catch em out there myself.
