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...

Agreed, Joe. However, just like the early days of the Alien Bee craze, some people do it right, and some don't. But the "Golly, jee whiz!" factor does seem to have some effect on the acceptance...

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
