Like everything else, post to Facebook and not here......
Just the realities of current life..
I would estimate that 90% of railfan and model railroading discussion has moved to Facebook groups.

Re: Towanda & Monroeton S.L. SW-1 status

When it was owned by TMSL, it was usually kept in a small engine house in Towanda, where the TMSL met the NS line right near the Susquehanna river bridge. (perhaps it was kept in Monroeton in earlier years?) Reading and Northern bought the TMSL in 2010, they were hoping to have a lot of fracking bus...

Re: Towanda & Monroeton S.L. SW-1 status

It's now owned by the ARHS, on loan to Steamtown in Scranton.
last I heard (a few years ago) it was said they plan to restore it to its original ACL purple scheme, and use it as a Steamtown park switcher.

I just googled it, and found a reference to LAL 15 on "the diesel shop" https://www.thedieselshop.us/LAL.HTML" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; It must be just a typo. ;) a mistake, because the locomotive itself has been saying all along that it is LAL 14, and it has never changed since...

Re: B&H 4, B&H 5, LAL 14 Scrapped

Otto, The former Tioga Central No. 14 has always been referred to as LAL No.14, since it moved to Cohocton from Wellsboro four years ago. Never seen it called #15 anywhere before. (Just curious, where did you find a reference to #15?) No, there has been no conformation that No. 14 or No. 5 have been...

Re: Any truth to WNY&P 6-axle Alcos leaving?

I joined the DL facebook group, (im already a member of all the relevant NY state groups)
I can find zero discussion anywhere about the locomotives going to the DL.
All I know of is that one random facebook post from a few weeks ago, that I mentioned in my last post.

I agree..just a rumor.

Re: Any truth to WNY&P 6-axle Alcos leaving?

There was one post on facebook, a week or two ago.. basically someone said "they heard" the 6-axle MLW's were leaving (or being retired) by WNYP, does anyone know anything more about it? The answer was: no, no one else has heard anything. the end. I havent seen anything else.. But the DL connection,...

Re: Landlocked at Dansville?

Thats a double track bridge, from the double track DL&W mainline. but only one side and one track in use today.. the side closest to 390 is the abandoned side.. could the barricade possible be on that side only? to prevent ATV and dirt-bike riders from crossing it perhaps? https://www.google.com/map...
