Locomotive footboard removal

When the Railroads had to remove the footboards were they attached by bolts or did they have to torch them off?

Low platform walkway crossing

I’m building a walkway across double tracks to connect two low level platforms. Should I have yellow safety lines at the edges of the walkway as it crosses the tracks or white or just leave it black.

Re: Newport VT

I saw your track speeders while I was passing through Lyndonville on Sunday morning. Looks like a lot of fun but how expensive is it to get into that hobby?

Newport VT

Was in Newport VT and noticed the rail line there splits in town. One goes on a trestle over the lake and one goes straight next to the mall. Is the line going past the mall active and are there any rail customers in Newport. Didn’t see any rail service to the grain mill there.

Re: Hewlett Station Raze?

I think the mushroom lights by the building were installed because the building still housed the ticket office and waiting room. You had to walk across the street to the high platform and the old low level platform was not illuminated when it closed down. You may want to contact Hempstead town hall ...

Model Railroad project layout

After seeing the project layout in the January issue I am a bit disappointed. This just doesn’t seem to be on the par as with other project layouts in the past. Any comments?

Single intermodal container car

Slip slide issues

I don’t remember the older mu cars mp54, mp72 and 75 cars having an issue with leaves on the track and sliding. Are the new mu cars sliding because of the quick braking they have compared to the older mu’s?

Re: stranded Acela

Woodside would be a reverse move to LIRR mainline so that move would be impossible. Hunters point is possible if it’s a diesel switcher.
