Re: Attica NS derailment 2/15/18

This is going to take a while, that whole fill that collapsed is going to need to be rebuilt and stabilized. Along with any underlying drainage/culvert/subgrade issues that may need to be corrected either as the underlying causes or results of this. And that won't even begin until the recovery is d...

Re: Major Derailment in Hyndman PA

I don't think the Hours of Service regs mean too much to John Q. Public. For probably 95% of the readers, the operative point is the first crew was done and new guys took over. That said, AP like most other news media has become a caricature of what journalism used to be. Grammar, syntax, accuracy,...

Re: Buffalo Central Station under Amtrak (Past, Present, Fut

By irrelevant, I was referring specifically to Riverbend as it will be open and largely staffed long before any proposed development occurs at BCT. Now presuming that 1.) BCT is redeveloped with the proposed housing units; 2.) the Buffalo growth spurt continues; and 3.) the area 'around' BCT can be ...

Re: Buffalo Central Station under Amtrak (Past, Present, Fut

Due to expansion of Tesla and Panasonic to have factories in Buffalo, NY, rail becomes more important in the area especially for freight and for passengers for those employees who need transportation. Buffalo Central is a huge railyard and makes perfect sense to rehabilitate. Looks like Buffalo is ...

Re: old tracks in Sunset Beach by Cape May

Hmm, I guess the press is a bit late (as usual); Ben got the scoop TWO YEARS ago here. Thanks for the report pumpers, and thanks Ben, your south Jersey reports are always appreciated, and 'on time'... :-) Chris In their defense, the Press did say the tracks originally appeared in 2014.

Re: Niagara Falls Station

Here's a Google Maps aerial shot of either the eb Maple Leaf #64 or train #284 arriving or departing the old NF station (can't tell with certainty from the summer sun angle if it's early AM (284) or midday (64) but I'm guessing it's the latter).
