Re: Fort wayne maps 1898

During Eel River RR research I found many parcels of land owned by railroads that were never built near those parcels. For example, IP&C's line ran from Indy to Michigan City, and it owned tracts 70 miles away in DeKalb County. Furthermore, the tracks it owned in DeKalb were scattered, and not conti...

Re: Bunge Waterloo Nov. 16

Bunge 103 was scrapped in 2008. It was partially dismembered one day when I drove past, but I didn't have my camera. After it broke they used NS 5339 until ILSX 9 arrived.

Re: NS 1801 SD70ACC at East Wayne

Cool paint scheme. Will NS paint any more of them like this?

East Wayne is in the City of New Haven, west to Meyer Rd., which is the dividing line between New Haven and Ft. Wayne.

Re: Nickel Plate Road's last steamer

Not a builder's photo: too shiny, no construction number plate near the rail, and, most importantly, a power pole in the middle of the tender.

It was really dolled-up. For what, and where?

Amtrak at Waterloo

This is the first time I've seen Amtrak trains in Waterloo, and there were two in 10 minutes. Both were westbound on the eastbound main, but switched to the WB main west of the shelter.

Where is the reporting mark?

Why does FRA own a locomotive that it has leased to INER for a decade?

FEC SD-70M at New Haven

I found FEC 107 eastbound on NKP, parked along Old Maumee Rd. west of New Haven. A lot of rust and deteriorated paint. Must be the salt air near the ocean.

Weaver Popcorn, Van Buren, 1950

Nickel Plate 912 switching Weaver Popcorn c.1950. Look at the lumpy track profile. I haven't seen railcars there in the past few trips to Indy.
