IH Travelall

Where was the IH Travelall on-loaded for the Erie-Lackawanna and likewise unloaded in the Chicago area? I took these shots of a westbound train in 1972. I didn't live in the Fort Wayne area at the time I took these photos.

When in doubt, post the picture with your best guess. Someone will correct you. The same thing works on FLICKR.

North Judson,Indiana - now & then

I haven't been to North Judson in 10 years. My wife and I need to visit the Hoosier Valley RR Museum. The Pennsy, Erie, NYC and C&O once crossed there. I hardly recognized the layout of the tracks and tower then. This photo was taken at the junction of the Pennsy Panhandle and the Erie-Lackawanna lo...

Re: Narrow band radio

The NS Huntington Division radio frequency, as an example, is 160.380 Mhz. The wide band bandwith was 25 kHz. With narrow brand radio, the bandwith is 12.5 kHz. The audio with NB may be lower in volume due to the narrower frequency bandwith. The center frequencies for the channels here in the area s...

Re: Narrow band radio

I monitor NS 160.380 only. I just re-programmed my radio and am listing to a female dispatcher at Waterloo. Everything has sounded ok. I'm going to monitor NS, CSX, etc road channels to see if I hear any difference. So far, I haven't heard any difference in audio. I've been told the AAR test facilit...

Narrow band radio

Has anyone noticed a difference in the audio from the railroad radios, since the RR's have gone narrow band?

Re: I shot these in Indiana in 1972

This tunnel is west of Louisville. I think Wayne Gest guessed correctly.

I know of one other tunnel in Indiana. What RR ran through it?

Re: Remember when PC referred to a Railroad?

I am from Elkhart (IN) originally. The squeal of the retarders on the hump would
keep me awake on summer nights.

All these photos were taken in January 1977 after Conrail was created.

Re: Yellow Stripes

I can't make it out to New Haven tomorrow to see if the IT engine is still there.

I do like those stripes though!!

I shot this set of IT stripes in 1975
