Re: Wabash Indiana

It is my understanding that the Marion Branch cannot run auto racks or double stacks because of that bridge. I also understand a clearance project there has been discussed, but due to the rather stiff grade there, simply undercutting would be problematic, which would leave raising the Wabash line, e...

Re: W&LE on CF&E

The owner of the W&LE is an ex-Rio Grande man. They bought several ex-DRGW units when UP was thinning the herd, and some are still in service in their full Rio Grande paint, while other locos have been painted in this tribute scheme. here is a pic of a couple of their units waiting to leave Bellevue...

Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

Another crappy old scan of a dreary day, but worth a look. I don't have the date on this one at the moment, but sometime in the 90's shortly after the diamonds came out at Mike and were replaced by switches.

Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

Both of my Sonys are capable of shooting in RAW format, but honestly, I have never even tried to do it. I guess I should experiment. This particular picture is admittedly lees than it should be for two reasons. One, the camera settings were less than optimum, and two, it was a good bit darker that n...

Re: Comment and question

Saturday, 1/8/2011. My wife had an all day business conference in Merrillville, so I dropped her off at the hotel where the conference was, and headed into Chicago for a day of train watching. In the early afternoon, I was exploring Hammond and the area around what was State Line Tower, when I saw a...

Re: Comment and question

Well I for one REALLY appreciate what David started, and Greg and then you have carried on. That's the reason I have been trying to do a version of what Craig is doing by posting photos of local interest and generating discussion. That's the way to learn, and interesting topics bring people back to ...

Re: Comment and question

Seems to work OK now. Thank you for what you do to keep this place going. I think we all understand this is not Trainorders where they have an IT staff. :)

Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

Sometime in the late 90's Indiana Hi-Rail #332 showed up at East Wayne Yard. This ALCO C420 is ex-Monon #515 and was last known to be in a dead line on the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad in 2014. IF this locomotive still exists, I would hope that maybe it could be repatriated to Indiana and cosmetical...

Re: Comment and question

I still cannot post any attachments. It tries to load the picture and then it gives me a little warning triangle. When I click on the triangle, it says this: Error
Cannot add another attachment, 0 is the maximum.


Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Comment and question

Well, that's kind of what I figured. We always went on Sunday, and I actually thought the crowds looked fairly good to me, but I wasn't sitting there counting heads. I wonder if an every other year thing would have worked better? What I hate is that I have a couple of friends with young boys who are...

Comment and question

First off, sorry I didn't post a new picture this week, I am getting an error message when I try to post it. I sent a message, so hopefully we get that fixed soon. Second, what happened to the railroad history events held annually at Baker Street Station? I always really enjoyed those, and they seem...
