I have no information of were or when the slide was taken.

Before we moved to Ftw I would come here for training and meetings. As I learned more about the railroad I would bring my camera and during free time I would get some photos. On one of these trips I found Hugo Jct. (as I now know where it is) For reasons unknown to me Triple Crown was using this are...

Welded Rail

February 2016 issue of Trains mag has a good section on welded rail.
One of the articles features SDI welded rail mill and CF&E.
Interesting read.

NW 611

The following photos of 611 were taken in Fort Wayne.
Probably an excursion that stopped in Fort Wayne.
I have no date when they were taken.
Can someone on the list please supply a date?

I am In.

But I don't think you should pay for everything.
How ever it is great that you are willing to do so.

Re: Cargill SD40-2

This was taken at Kimmell.

If you go to Google earth and view Kimmell you can see a locomotive on the siding.
Not sure it is this one though.
