Gonna be cool when those things get paint, whatever scheme it may be (probably G&O black). Thanks for continuing to document the changes on the L&C, Joe.

I honestly have thought several times that NS may consider "reshortlining" that one in a PSR world. It already operates like a shortline. I believe the crews' paychecks are even from the CW (or...

They still have the trio of WW-painted GP38s. The GP9/10s are all out of service now to the best of my knowledge. All but the 498 had their stacks capped when I was through there a few months ago,...

All's well, Joe. I think next week will be a good time to start easing back into some railfanning around here. Palmetto is a sharp scheme. I've hit it a few times on previous visits. There is...

Latest I've heard on this is UP is not willing to sell, and the STB has ruled the company cannot be forced to sell the line.

My take only-- an interesting shot, and probably because I've been to NZ and enjoy international railroading.

Taking off that hat, I do think some photo editing may help. Note the white tops of...

Not for nothing, but Pennsylvania does have one of the most generous shortline grant programs of any state. Much of what the Reading & Northern is doing to expand service comes from state grants.

Farewell to the Winchester & Western
