Re: CFE gets $4.5 million grant...

That's a good question. NS is using 136# rail from SDI to replace both rails on the New Castle District from Muncie to the Fort. It takes a lot of work to swap out the extrusion plate and all the shaping rollers in a mill like SDI. They prefer, obviously, to produce huge batches of one size. To stay...

Nice chunk of change. This will help (a little, I know) keep them a going concern.

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

The train with autoracks is no longer 288/289, but 188/189. 189 has a block of general freight up front and lots of autoracks. Most days well over 100 cars. 188 doesn't seem to have much, if any merchandise block. Tue08Sep2020. 174 had a pull apart just North of Ossian. This train had 2x2x0 dpu set-...

Re: Maybe of interest (4).

I did some random speed checks stop to stop at various locations and it averages a little over 30 mph.

They were preparing to remove the concrete base in Decatur. Did it finally come down?

Re: Remarkable reference

You mis-understand, I work with INDOT every other day, so this mind-numbing complexity seems normal to me. Howard nailed it. As for the errors, I see them all the time. Some of it has to do with non-compliant paperwork to update information, like not filing the proper abandonment forms. Purchase agr...

Re: Trains seen on NCD!

It's been a while, but I saw my first autorack train (289?) in a long time heading South THU04JUN2020. For the last three months, you'd see a car or two, maybe a block of six in a merchandise train, not a solid unit train. Since PSR ate the brains of rail leaders, 289 (the regularly scheduled rack t...
