Re: Pan Am Worcester Main Line

I just learned that MASS Dot DID indeed buy the Worcester line... when did THAT happen??? I haven't talked to many railfans lately or maybe I would have known. But the person I got the info from is very reputable. Can't say I am happy about the state gobbling up so many MA lines, BUT then again, it'...

Re: Pan Am Worcester Main Line

Concerning that notice from the MBTA regarding track work last year, why would the MBTA even be involved? They don't own the track or run trains on it (other than detours). Did they perhaps know that Boston may possibly be taking the Grand Junction bridge out of service for years thanks to a Mass Pi...

Re: Railroad Picture Archives Down

OK, so not just down for me... not sure if that is good or bad...

Alas, the site really needs a major update. Not sure the owner is interested in that. Has anyone yet dropped him an email asking what's up?

How Rare Are the EMD SD60M Triclops Units?

Hi all

I managed to accidentally catch two ex-BN EMD SD60M "Triclops" units recently. I am seeing people refer to them as "rare", but for the life of me I can't find any real info about them online.

Does anyone know roughly how many of these still exist?

Re: Grafton & Upton Railroad (G&U) Discussion

What are the odds that John was at the yard Monday snapping pics, and WE were there yesterday?? Of course, when WE were there it was CLOUDY!! :( :(

Seems G&U isn't doing much to patch #1130.

Looking for B&M Jeep FC Photos

HELLO all I am looking for a decent quality SIDE VIEW of one of the Boston & Maine Jeep FC's that they once used for MOW vehicles. I know that they were yellow, though I don't know what shade. I am also pretty sure the logo on the door was black. I could use a color view, and/or one showing the side...

Re: Fate of B&M steam locomotive #827?

Yesterday I decided to try once again to pinpoint the location of the B&M derailment photo I mentioned here way back in 2009. The location is West Lynn MA, the accident was in March 1910. I have added a page to my blog covering the discovery: https://newenglanddepot.blogspot.com/2018/02/name-that-ph...

Re: B&M Location Question...

AHA! So there is NOT a thing called an air-reduction-switch!

HA!

Seriously though, I had a feeling there were indeed two different "locations", I just had never heard of them before so thought I'd ask around. :wink:

B&M Location Question...

Attached is a page from a 1953 station & siding symbol booklet. My question is this:

Is "AIR-REDUCTION POWDER SWITCH" a thing or a location??

Curious...
