Re: Impending demolishment of an Erie relic !

Oh I'm sure less than 9 out of 10 men on the street could correctly identify what that is. But isn't that the point of preserving history, so people can know and understand how they got there? Once it's gone, you lose context and perspective.

Re: Churubusco Snyder Grain

Growing up, I went past the elevator quite often as it is/was only a couple of blocks away from the family doctor's office. Only recall seeing a train once or twice in all those years.

Re: KCS 4124

That train went through Bluffton at 1122. I believe it was 61C. A 2nd, W1C went through at 1727.

Looks good. Is that a slightly different font?

Too bad my family tree includes a lot of Schultzs (with a "C")

Re: Muncie Rail Fan Plop Spot

Both CSX and NS run hot and cold, sometimes at the same time. You might get 10 trains in 2 hours or you might get 1 or 0. I think my personal best was 12 trains in 2 hours. YMMV

Re: New York Central Signal Bridge

I will miss seeing that signal bridge as I fly over on I-69. The lower signals will be harder to see.
