Just a nice sized sand flea train southbound Thursday afternoon. Great to see shiny rails at Mulholland Rd. crossing. The two SD40-2s were working nice with about 60 cars - however crawling. Apparently a couple weeks ago they went on the ground over turning a good section of rail effectively closing the line for a few days until repairs were made. The old sectional rail portion in NYS is in a rather decrepit state.
However, in good news, Town of Erwin and WCOR are working to gether to run Frack Water Trains from Erwin next to Mullholland Rd. to Wellsboro. Instead of trucks, they're going rail for the immense amounts of water needed to Frack. The water will come out of the Tioga River near Mulholland Rd. So besides MOnday and Thursday sand trains - there will be Frack Water Trains. Work will begin on a siding soon an is approved by the Town of Erwin.
