K802 in siding at Orange Heights,FL

Last Friday, 08/13/10, I chased K802 northbound until it went into the siding at South Orange Heights, FL. I heard the crew/dispatcher talking about "recrewing" and having to find a spot to "pull off to." The train sat there a while then turned it's lights and crew talked about "tying up for 6 month...

Alternate SAL merger partners

early Amtrak vision of High-Speed service

This of course got me thinking about early Amtrak. So...if we went back in time to the late 1970s or early 1980s what w...

Chessie System paint scheme as CSX paint scheme

This is probably gonna sound like a "silly" question. When CSX was formed was there ever any consideration given to retaining Chessie Systems locomotive paint scheme as the CSX paint scheme? CSX has gone through several paint schemes. I've read that some of the schemes were changed in order to creat...

S- Line traffic between Orange Heights & Hawthorne

I live close to the S-Line between Baldwin, FL and Ocala, Fl and I've seen a lot of traffic recently. Two weeks ago, on a Sunday, I went cruising along Highway 301 and in about 1 hours time I saw 4 freights including a southbound Tropicana Juicetrain. I assumed juice train was all empties as it was ...

Re: Folkston Funnel railfanning

Thanks for the info. I was planning to go up this saturday morning, but now it may be closer to lunch time before I get there. My wife had a "slight" change in schedule. I was shooting for early morning. So...now I'm wondering if it'll be a total waste to get there in the late morning or around lunc...

Folkston Funnel railfanning

I'm new to this forum. I am a Seaboard fan first and therefore a defacto CSX fan. This questions has probably been asked before. Can anyone give me a good idea what the best time of day is to railfan the Folkston Funnel? I'm planning on taking my 4 year old son, who is totally crazy over trains. I l...
