Re: Additions to the P&W Locomotive Fleet

Perhaps now with 4301 online, 582 can finally get its turn in the paint shop?

Re: Grand Junction Branch (The North/South Side Connection)

Looks like there is some MOW work going on - driving along Soldiers Field Road I noticed a couple of pieces of MOW equipment on the small overpass. There was a long string of MOW equipment on the lead to the GJ and about 7-9 AFCX-marked ballast hoppers underneath I-90. I couldn't get any numbers, so...

Perhaps they are subbing for the flats damaged in the Andover/Lawrence derailment?

Re: Haverhill Line Upgrade Discussion (Western Route)

There was a switch panel installed this morning on the running track just north of Frye Interlocking under the 495 N overpass and onramp (not directly beneath, but close). CR trains had to run on the yard track through Lawrence, which meant slow orders from the Andover St. crossing to Frye.

Orange Line Winter Resiliency Program

I've seen some signs posted at Orange Line stations saying there will be evening bustitutions June 22-25 between Wellington and Oak Grove for a "winter resiliency improvement program." Does anyone here know what that entails, exactly?

Re: Status Of Equipment at BET

1005 and 1011 have been moved from their siding and put with the rest of the dead screamers. Two plows and a flanger have taken their place in the siding.

Re: Manchester-Lawrence still in use?

Thanks for the info B&M 1566! If I had to guess, the steel coils were for the trailer company, yeah?

I was a child during the final years of the line's use. I never saw many trains on the M&L so it was always an event for me to spot one.

Re: EMD F10 Detail Parts

I am thinking of modeling a MBTA FP10, but in N scale instead of HO scale. I found an article on Trainlife from an '80s issue of Prototype Modeler on how to make one in HO scale: http://www.trainlife.com/articles/709/massachusetts-bay-transportation-authority-fp10-s . For the most part, the techniqu...

Former Manchester-Lawrence customer question

I am doing research on M&L branch operations for a possible N-scale layout. In the following two videos by the late Richard 'Moose' Ouellette on nhrrman's YouTube, you can see a coil steel car being switched near a building next to the old Grossman's Lumber (now gone and replaced by Tuscan Kitchen),...

Re: Interesting Consist Discussion for the North Side

I saw an unusual consist in front of the wash tracks at BET this afternoon. It was HSP46 (2007?) - MBB - flat - flat - flat - Rotem - Rotem cab. There was another train next to it and I was too far away to get numbers, unfortunately.

Re: 2014 Discussion for Commuter Rail Delays

I'm aboard train 321. We're stranded outside the Tighe (?) warehouse. GP40MC is having mechanical problems. Will get loco number when I get a chance. At least the HEP is still working, would hate to be caught without heat on a day like this! UPDATE: Dead loco was 1135. We got pushed into Anderson by...

Same here. I would have thought that since it came from NS only recently that it would have outlasted PAR's other GP40s!
