I would like a heads up as to when it is going in if anyone knows. I think it would be interesting to watch.

OK NEVER MIND MY EARLIER POST. One of the ppl that originally called me, called back a few mins ago to say that the diamond is being put in in approx. 3 weeks. They are just unloading the trucks for it today.

Does that mean a regular diamond, or a high speed diamond?

I have now heard that there are THREE diamonds sitting next to the tracks at Durand. All three are high speed. Two of them have ties on them, the other one has no ties just rail.
Does anyone know why they would have a third diamond at Durand without ties?

YEs, nevar have i scene a 3 page thred about a dimond,, What is the Big deal? ARE THAY IN YET ARE THAY IN YET???? WOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WOOOO WOO WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Hear com e a train!! Are their one dimonds to dimonds or 3 dimonds or FOR dimondS?? :shock: ARE THAY IN YET ARE THAY IN YET???? YES THAY ARE IN !!!! NO I WAS Wrong thay are not in yet. I herd somone say thay will go in later. I herd somone say somthing wissper in my ear a secrit. OooOooooo goodness *&^%$#@#$%^&*

THEY ARE JUST STEENKING DIAMONDS. Someone who knows how to spell better than the above, please let us know when the diamonds are actually being replaced, and no more daily updates, of "are they in yet?" or "I think they are getting replaced!!" We have already discussed the differences between flange-bearing and regular diamonds, and it is clear that nobody here knows 100% yet what they are going to be or when they are going to be replaced. I don't think I've ever seen a thread spin it's wheels this much before :lol: :?
