OK, GREAT! Picture three makes this whole thing make sense to me now. I know for a fact that I have NEVER seen this picture. Thanks for the help!
I have to agree with Bob, I don't recall ever seeing this angle before. It really puts things in perspective.

Re: RoadRailer almost made it 4 Decades

There was another TC train on its side down in GA. Glynnwood or somesuch place. I have photos of the aftermath stored somewhere.

TC was a trucking company first and foremost. As they used less rail, they still had some contract trucking to do.

Re: NKP 626

I saw the three pulleys arranged across the horizontal bar with what looks like two “flags” raised and thought ball type signal. Zooming in, I didn’t see enough detail to make out whether it pivoted or not.

Re: Can anybody explain the city of Fort Wayne's lack of interest in Headwater's Junction?

Never forget tax revenue when talking to politicians. What would bring in more of other peoples' money they can pocket, I mean, spend, a shiny HQ Building or a park-like rail museum site? I know NS would not be interested in sharing the R/W, but I can envision the trolley line circulating to a spot ...

Re: Refueling at Garrett 11-23-2019

It happens. Unit was needed before serving was completed; someone mis-read the fuel gage; fuel gage not working properly; it was “just enough”, but something happened to delay it en-route to the next service location, etc.

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

Somebody is having a bad night. 25A was put into the siding. There was another southbound past Winters RD, but it doesn’t fit. 288 was told to stop while in Bluffton blocking all crossings. When they re-started the suffered a separation between the 90th and 91st cars. An hour later and they are look...

That stack has probably been clear since Dunrieth as the T-1 coasts to a station stop from 100+ mph [/sarcasm]

Re: Richmond IN/PRR Newman Tower

So many iconic elements in this photo. 1. A fixed hoop for the operator of the tower to hand up orders without risking standing too close on a curve where long cars will overhang more. 2. 40s vintage end-cab switcher still toiling away. 3. Even with icicles hanging off, the engineer has the window o...
