Re: What is Georgetown and High Line Rlwy LLC?

According to the Bizapedia report linked above, two of the three principals of the Georgetown & High Line have mailing address of 500 Water ST, Jacksonville FL. Which is also the HQ of CSX. Therefore I assume this is a shell corporation owned by CSX. Does everybody already knows that? Interesting.....

Re: All About the Hoosac Tunnel & Wilmington Railroad

Thank you for the link. This is very useful information. A friend of mine and I are working on a model project of the B&M Hoosac Tunnel and are incorporating the HT&W interchange, and possibly model the full HT&W in the future.

Re: What is Georgetown and High Line Rlwy LLC?

I don't trust them... They appear to be real estate developers. The only rail affiliation I can see is David Boor, the treasurer, who "has other corporate interests" including CSX Non-Rail Payroll Services, Inc., and more corporations. His past corporate affiliations, included CSX Holding Benefits.....

Re: Derailment in Andover, MA

Must be some high ground next to it, like some ledge or something. But the photo does contradict the way I was told. Does not look like the conductors side is down at all. But the informant was on scene and it was probably dark. This is at CP Frye where the tracks still drop to single track. There'...

Re: Haverhill Line Upgrade Discussion (Western Route)

One word applies here: ridiculous. Can you see octr202 driving down to Lowell Jct. from Essex St. in Andover?! :-D I'd be moving. Talk about assinine.

Re: Question about background checks

Hello all! Im new here and my question is, will BNSF still consider me when I failed to mention a minor moving violation on my driving record from 2008? I know, idiot. But it was an honest mistake. Nothing to lie about. I drove threw a parking lot to turn on the next street along with a handful of ...

Re: Never even a chance

I know you said you've held a job for 5 years but were you terminated by any employer in the past 2 years of applying with UP? This is an unpublished, yet definite, automatic denial as well. Usually a previous employer cannot disclose this information. In the even that they are asked for employment...
