Re: Springfield Line Upgrade in CT

Why will the Hartford viaduct and the Conn River Bridge still remain single tracked? (I'm having a difficult time following what everyone else is saying :P ) They are separate projects ($$$$$). The Hartford viaduct depends in decisions about I-84's realignment. No point in rebuilding the viaduct no...

Re: Official M2 / M4 / M6 Retirement Thread

One M6 triplet lacking logos and two M2 pairs were on the rear of CSXT Q351 yesterday. Waiting for response on exact car numbers.

Re: M-8 Cars

9542/9643 was the lead pair of 1538 today. As to be expected, 9643 looks like any other M8 right now. Something tells me they'll never be converted to bar cars, but only time will tell. Any word on when the single cars are supposed to arrive on MN property? (or somehow become married pairs which wou...

Re: ACS-64 Testing, Developments, & Sightings

Alright everyone, let's get back on topic. I'd imagine the moderators would especially appreciate it ;-). These question are for anyone who has operated, serviced/repaired, or who at the very least works for the railroad: what are the most common problems that have been found recently, and how have ...

Re: M-8 Cars

Not that this is so significant, but 9204/05 was on display in New Haven on track 3 for National Train Day today. The pantograph was down the whole time, but yet the emergency lights were still on. How long can their batteries go for before draining?

Re: Official M2 / M4 / M6 Retirement Thread
