Re: Trains seen on NCD!

Somebody is having a bad night. 25A was put into the siding. There was another southbound past Winters RD, but it doesn’t fit. 288 was told to stop while in Bluffton blocking all crossings. When they re-started the suffered a separation between the 90th and 91st cars. An hour later and they are look...

Nice photos. PRR kept trying to increase the state of art with steam.

Re: Richmond Indiana C&O & PRR

...CSX offered the line to NS.....
Between which endpoints would NS use this line? All the way Cindy-Chi-town?

Re: T-1 coming into Richmond

That stack has probably been clear since Dunrieth as the T-1 coasts to a station stop from 100+ mph [/sarcasm]

Re: Richmond IN/PRR Newman Tower

So many iconic elements in this photo. 1. A fixed hoop for the operator of the tower to hand up orders without risking standing too close on a curve where long cars will overhang more. 2. 40s vintage end-cab switcher still toiling away. 3. Even with icicles hanging off, the engineer has the window o...

Re: ND&W Photos

I have to look, but I think I have photos of PREX1616 in Sturgis, MI (or Ashley) a few years ago.

Re: PRR Falstaff Baggage Car

Are the angle brackets over the trucks some kind of high-speed stabilization?

IIRC, the PRR did not service the Falstaff Brewery, so I don't think there is a Fort Wayne connection here.

Re: Richmond

I always thought it odd to mix hood units in with the Fs. I know as long as the gearing and mu are compatible, it makes no difference, it's just aesthetics. I also note the number of empty tracks in the yard. It could be a quiet time, or traffic has dropped off from war-time peaks and justifies some...

Re: ERIE in Decatur IN

I guess they weren't worried about the lines falling onto the building.

You also don't see any hoops laying around, so the radios in every locomotive/caboose must have eliminated the need to hoop up orders. (or they only did it at the tower beside the diamond)

Re: December on the Erie

You'd think an old passenger car would have a lot of room. These photos make it look cramped. It looks like it is strictly work-space, no domicile or kitchen for working away from home.

Re: Speaking of Richmond

at 15:10 you see the fireless cooker for the steam plant in downtown Indy. It looks shiney in the video. What happened to it after the 44-tonner took over?
