LAL 20 still needs wheels.

You will still find 72 doing the Lakeville chores if not 418.

Re: D-L Scranton yard

The area to the north of the tracks (near the large, brick building) is private property and should not be trespassed upon. The area to the south of the tracks has two roads that run directly to the engine shop and are thus easily (and lawfully) accessed. Be careful with "accessing" the shop area s...

Re: Lowville & Beaver River box cars in Utica

Just so you know, these boxcars like other cars marked for GVT roads can be found anywhere on the North American railroad system. These specific cars just happen to be in this pool.

Re: LA&L, WNYP, B&H Diesel Status

Brian,

From what I can deduce (as in not based on field observation) all but three? (the two Demos and one other) are in service. I could be wrong however since I've not been to the Cohocton shops in a long while.

Re: NYS Seeks HSR $ From WI & OHIO

Forget not that the airline industry is heavily subsidized by your government. Heavily, as in if it were not subsidized to the level it is today and has been for years, you and I would probably not be able to afford the short 3 hour flight to NYC. By the way it's more like 1 hour from Rochester by a...

Re: NYS Seeks HSR $ From WI & OHIO

I think Otto meant from 79 to 110. The current Amtrak GE Diesel Fleet is capable of these speeds already. It's in track and signaling that upgrades must be made.

WNYP 428 is supposedly in the paint shop. I can neither confirm nor deny this at this time.

Re: Childrens Museum Utica NY

Considering all the derailments that occurred at the time of the 1980 Olympics, I'm glad that this "rare" 6-axle locomotive will never operate again. There isn't much reason for nostalgia over that failed venture. What failed venture? The idea of six axle locomotives? If so look around, all new con...
