The new diamond is very very quiet compared to the old one. I will miss the cars bouncing up and down over the old diamond, though. I swear it looked like some of the cars got a little air between the wheels and the rails :shock: . I am amazed there was never a significant derailment at the dimaond at least that I am aware of :?

Maybe in a century, two more trains a day will be crossing the diamond.

It's been several years. The new Durand Diamond is now old and used.
