They bought a loco.

It appears to be from ADM in Brookston, Indiana. It was originally built for Ohio Edison in 1956. Serial number is 32699.

I really like to watch his videos and how he wants to make something of his investment. Little at a time he has cleared the rail, shaped it up, bought equipment and now an engine. From what he said there is potential business coming to his rail so we shall see. He loves his coffee!

I really like watching the ECTR video's as the updates are great. Plenty of information on a spur that was long dead that the father and son have started to put back to life. I would think in another year or two may be less they should have some storage business on the line. If you haven't watched or subscribed you should all the videos are on You Tube.

Haven't seen anything posted on Facebook about this line of late. Brian purchased this siding in hopes to get some business but had hit some roadblocks along the way. Hopefully, he can get something together by spring maybe some scrap business on the siding if he can get a contract. Hasn't been any news of late we shall see.

I found it interesting that Brian and his son bought this siding and wanted to give it a go. They worked the rail to get it in shape to hold cars including a working switcher. That siding was in bad shape over a year ago they cleared the brush put down new ties and had it inspected. Very determine to get a business on the line.

My guess is that he never got anything going. Probably hard to get anything going since he don’t have much rail but I’m not sure how them railroads work.

There aren’t a lot of cars being stored right now. Many are either put to use or have been scrapped. He was banking on a lot of revenue with car storage.

Very interesting! I like how he described his method for bidding a contract to unload steel wire.
