I actually heard where some of the things are going but I neglected to ask if it was sharable. In any case it seemed like good news to me.

If you weren't told not to share, then you can.

The only one I’m willing to say (I don’t want to upset the guys signing the checks) is that ALCO #5 is going to CNY NRHS, it’s a matter of the paperwork at this point. As for the E-8’s, they are being prepped to move to another railroad along with one or more BL-2, the passenger cars are being flung to any operation that needs or can use them. Other than that, when they get there it will be known. I will say that nothing is going to get cut up or left behind. I personally know IPH is trying to make sure some things are right when and if they go. This is why ALCO #5 was sent to CNY, IPH was concerned with it leaving NY. I think that was a great thing for them to do and shows the concern for historical value. They are working hard to make sure things are right in NY but it’s really a hard fight these days.

Your off the hook LVRR325, and I moved your truck today.

On another list, it is reported that County officials have not even acknowledged the correspondence for the PA company.

Pennsylvania railroad operator offers help on Warren County line

A railroad operator in Pennsylvania believes he can help turn around Warren County’s rail line.

Robert Lowe, who owns Rail Holdings Inc. in south-central Pennsylvania, said he reached out to Warren County officials in recent days after reading about the demise of Saratoga & North Creek Railway. The railway has operated on the rail line owned by the county and town of Corinth for seven years, but announced in March that it was shutting down.

Lowe’s overture was mentioned at a public Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, and he discussed the interest in a phone conversation with a reporter Tuesday.

Lowe said his company owns two railroads and runs a third in Pennsylvania, including Landsville Railroad, Elizabethtown Industrial Railroad and Clinton Terminal Railroad. Lowe said it also helped operate Piedmont & Northern Railroad in North Carolina after it ran into operations problems similar to what has befallen SNCR. That railroad was also run by SNCR’s parent company, Iowa Pacific Holdings, for a period of time.

I noticed today that the SNC is selling a 2003 Chevy highrail and their material handling truck.

They're closing the operation, so it's a matter of what things are worth the expense to ship to another of their properties and what ones would be sold right there.
