Re: Port Morris-Jct

Sorry to sound like an idiot but I don't feel like browsing all the topics on here...unless someone can provide me a link. You mean to tell me they are going to start construction in the near future? When was the approval made to start building out towards Andover? I really havn't been keeping track...

Re: RBMN SW1500 Question

RRfoose,

I believe the SW-1500's were bought in the mid-late 90's. I can give you a better answer in a couples of days if you'd like. :wink:

Re: Scranton/JimThorpe

I could be wrong, but I thought CN operated down to Mehoopany as well. Though to think of it, it probably wouldn't make any sense since they already have a presence in Scranton. Just NS operates into Mehoopany to interchange with the RBMN. Canadian Pacific is the railroad in Scranton (Taylor). Alth...

Re: Scranton/JimThorpe

One of RBMN's locals makes its way to the Procter Gamble plant and the CN/NS interchange at Mehoopany, PA, arriving approx. 9:30AM. I think the branch they run up is limited to 25mph so they probably leave Pittston pretty early. The line parallels roads for a good distance and runs through some ver...

Although I did get a kick out of the story where the train runs down Frelinghuysen Avenue and hits a fire hydrant... :-D You...

NJT took a statement and was satisfied that the engineer operated with proper train handling, but Amtrak was trying to hang the engineer....

Re: warwick furnace bridge

From what I understand, the bridge was used by Eastern Steel to access an area across the river where they dumped some by-product of their production (slag?) - I don't know anything about the iron business so I can't even hazard a guess here. I believe that the bridge was accessed from their proper...
