  • Updated the Video page. I have added 3 new videos. One video is from Conrail days on the GR&I. It's neat to see how much that area has changed in just a few years. Thanks to Zeke for submitting his two videos, and I look forward to him uploading many more. If you have some video clips you'd like to share, please email me and I'll get in touch with you about how to submit them. I have also put the 765 test run video online. For more information on this please visit the discussion board.

  • Added a special section dedicated to ATCS Monitoring. Please check this out if you havn't gotten into this niche yet.
  • Added information to the Indiana Northeastern page. Thanks to Don Reid, a reporter for the Coldwater Daily Reporter, for this information.
  • I have a few new things to come that I'm working on, one being a section dedicated to Bryan, OH. I know it doesn't have much to do with Ft Wayne, but it's my hometown and I feel it's worth putting a section in here about it because of the rich railroad history there. Lots of photos, diagrams and stories to come with that page.
  • I've noticed that NS is doing something at the east end of East Wayne Yd. In the field between the round house and Hartzell Rd they are building up the land with dirt. I'm wondering if this is the beginning of the new dispatching center that is to come?
