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: :?

Bob, I can see where you are coming from. But, I have been going to Durand since I was five years old. This is the first time I remember a diamond going in at Durand. It is a big deal for me because it will change the way we watch trains in Durand! (I mean listen to them). Since they are high speed diamonds, I will really miss the slamming and the sparks of the diamond there now. :(
This will change the way of watching trains in Durand. (I know there is no action there but it is still my railfanning home and I know a lot of people there, so it is my favorite place!)
Anyone up for a emergency Durand meet? October 31st would be a good time!
Does anyone think that with the higher speed trains, they would lift the horn ban in Durand?

The trains will be able to go so fast now it won't be necessary to sound the horn or even for cars to stop :lol:
Thanks for posting the picture of installing the diamond. I didn't realize it was already snowing in Durand :shock: :wink: :lol:

No, Ben, don't be sorry. It wasn't you that prompted changes but rather a series of things. I don't think any changes will come governing the posting of diamond updates. Some find this thread amusing, most find it uninformational. :P We're just saying (and this goes for everyone, not just you, Ben) to hold off posting anything until your info can be verified, clarified and certified. It's everyone's posting what they heard from their friend, or the guy 2 houses down, or what they *think* they saw that has caused this thread to balloon now to 5 pages (ok ok...with the help of a few tongue-in-cheeck posts :P )

I like the picture of the diamond being replaced. Is that a rail-based or a truck-based crane on the right side of the picture?

I would hate to be on topic but whoever said something about the Defiance Diamond being one way low speed is wrong. It is a normal diamond, which I find odd considering the diamond is the poster child for places needing OWLS Diamonds.

If the MAW uses the Diamond twice a month I would be shocked.
