Unread post by matt76 »

I heard that the diamond may be being replaced tomorrow on Memorial Day. I was going to railfan there tomorrow and was wondering if anyone knew. Thanks for an info.

Don't see them working on Memorial Day at double time unless rail traffic is going to rerouted. Figure rail traffic is slow tomorrow. I need to check it out with someone else

Not going to happen on Memorial Day.
May be the first week in July.

Any clue as to the time frame of the work? Clearly it will be a parade of trains and lots of lunar signals once the work is done.

Doubt if you see any rerouting. Look for everything to be held.
