Re: Southern Tier - East of Binghamton

CNYK is a sub of the Delaware & Otsego. CNYK is a paper only railroad.
NYSW is a sub of the Delaware & Otsego.
So NYSW has right to use the CNYK from Port Jervis to Bingo, through the parent organization the D&O.

Re: bevier st yard layout help

Post a pic of your mock up, would love to see it. We finally got the Perdue Logo up on the mill, they have only owned it for 10 years. NYSW's Dirty Dirt trans load has ended, there have not been any of those cars in the yard since early fall. Still lots of hoppers of plastic pellets for National Pip...

Auto Racks Capacity?

How many of an average sized Car does an Auto Rack carry?
Son and I sat at crossing last night, and had a debate about this, while waiting for train to pass.

Thanks

Re: Catskill Mountain Railroad (CMRR) Discussion - 2018

First, I am a big supporter of the railroad, I have ridden it with my family in both Phoenicia, and Kingston. I was at one time a volunteer also. But.... 30+ years ago CMRR blew their opportunity with this rail line. If they had been running trains from Kingston to Highmount, from the 80's till now,...

Re: Moving a Trackmobile

I got my answer from the railroad, it does not have a coupler that meets the correct standards.
So we will have to put it on a truck.

Moving a Trackmobile

Guys,
Can a trackmobile be moved by rail, as part of a freight?

I need to move mine from Upstate New York to North Carolina.

Herzog Hoppers with Solar Panels on Top

This morning in Binghamton, a Unit train came north on NS through Conklin, it was all Herzog Hooper Cars.
I wrote down one number, HZGX 10131.
One front and back edges of the every one of the hoppers was a pair of solar panels.

What the !@#$% are solar panels doing on open hopper cars?
