Re: Nickel Plate Road's last steamer

It doesn't look like the factory in the background, but as shiny as she is, it has to be a delivery/acceptance photo.

Re: Fort wayne maps 1898

I love looking at old maps to see "what it used to be" because it adds context to what we have now.

Re: Louisville and Indiana (LIRC)

CSX trackage rights, so CSX crews and power. The few crew changes I've seen seem to be all CSX crews. I haven't heard anything about L&I hiring more crews to handle this traffic.

Re: Louisville and Indiana (LIRC)

Kinda sorta. CSX invested millions to upgrade the line so they could use it as a relief valve for routes into Cincinnati. L&I owns the line, but CSX owns the improvements (ballast, ties, CWR, new bridges) and has exclusive trackage rights.

Re: Amtrak at Waterloo

As I recall, they have to be running late to be seen in good daylight this time of year.

Re: NS Dispatchers

I think the NCD dispatcher has moved to ATL. You can hear a distinct change in radio quality. It's like they are off-frequency.
