Unread post by ConrailMan5 »

The HC&E R.R Company has been chartered to re-open th former NYC Hillsdale branch as well as opperatte the Former Lakeshore and MI southern branch from the NS interchange west of Butler to the GR&P interchange at Jonesville.
Line clearing is almost complete, and crews are finishing up with the last miles near Brooklyn. The major commodity is grain from the numerous elevators on the line.

THe power for the line comes 3 EX GTW RS1's that are yet to arrive on the property As well as a leased SW1500

Interchange points are West of butler with NS, Jonesville With GR&P andn AA at saline

The GR&P no longer exsists...the old main is no OC&M, and the rest was dissolved into the TSCR

I'm confused, what ex NYC line are you claiming that ran west of Butler, the old FW&J that ran thru Waterloo? If so, I own that line under my Penn Central.

GTW only had 2 RS1's, 1950 & 1951. The were the last two domestic RS1's built.

Okay, we have a problem then. You are claiming ownership of two specific lines that my Penn Central owns, the first being that part of the Waterloo Branch from Steubenville to Hillsdale(I own the entire thing from Jackson to Fort Wayne), and the North Adams Branch from Hillsdale to North Adams(in my world the branch ends at North Adams).

Now, what I can do is give you ownership of the North Adams Branch from Hillsdale to North Adams, as long as I get trackage rights to switch my customers in North Adams. As to the Waterloo Branch, I will offer you trackage rights from Steubenville to Hillsdale with PC retaining ownership of the line and dispatching control over it.

The way to differentiate is one has 7 in their username, the other doesn't.
