Re: KCS 4124

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

I know, and he probably knows, too. I was just yanking his chain. I would think he was just giving the modern reference points for those that don't know.

Re: Indiana Northeastern 3084

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

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