Re: Campbell's

The re-structuring should be benefitting the Napoleon Plant, They also recently opened a $40,000,000 Facility near Willard OH to produce Goldfish ! Soup sales are soaring.. when things are good soup sales go flat.. when things get tough soup sales soar !

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 sta...

Not sure if I believe that the ND&W will get 132# - 136# rail unless it re-lay 115# stick rail makes the most sense but it is certainly good News !

Re: Eel River

Was there much interchange traffic at Auburn ? Too bad the Eel River didn't survive. I never saw a train on the Eel in Auburn but do remember the crossing in Auburn near the Brown House. I wish I could see a photo of that crossing when it was still in place.

Re: Indiana Northeastern's Western Extension towards Chicago

Are they not the ones that took up the track from Wolcottville to South Milford in the first place? I bet that you're correct they lifted/severed way too much track sidings at Helmer and Hamilton which are now both in service. Am I understanding this right? They are putting down new track to store ...

Indiana Northeastern's Western Extension towards Chicago

The westward extension toward Chicago is progressing...westward. In fact, the gang is almost to 550E, which is about two and a half miles to the west of South Milford.. The extension is 7000' and will be used to hold cars for loading and is on the former ROW

Re: PRR era question

That's a lot of interesting information! What does it signify when a city name is in bold font , compared to the cities listed in regular font? Such as Fort Wayne compared to Crestline.
