    Odd caboose spotted in Nichols,NY today

    Spotted an odd caboose on the tail of an EB freight thru Nichols, NY today. Unsure if CP or NS was pulling it. The caboose was white, had windows, ladders and only one story but no overly large windows. I think it had an AC as well. The car was also built on an old flat car. Anybody have...

    Can anybody ID this old rail road ROW?

    While traveling from New Mexico to Oklahoma thru Texas along I40 I noticed there is an old rail line that parallels the interstate across the whole of Texas and can be seen in NM and OK. Runs directly past a lot of old grain silos and part of the line still has rail in Amarillo and appears to be...

    UP diesel with 3 windows on the side

    Probably one of those, looks real close, just stuck out to me for some reason. I should have grabbed the cab #.

    UP diesel with 3 windows on the side

    Driving across Wyoming and noticed a UP diesel with extra windows on the side, appeared to be 3. Is this a special model? Sorry for not having a photo. Thanks!

    How far south does the North American rail network go?

    Wondering how far south the North American rail network goes. Does it continue past Mexico? In essence, how low can you go? :p

    UP Big Boy on the Move

    4014 is now less than 1/8 mile from 4004. Would be one HECK of a photo if somebody could pull it off but there is a lot of stuff between the tracks and the Big Boys. Probably the closest 2 Big Boy locomotives have come since 4023 left Cheyenne.

    UP Big Boy on the Move

    Caught it right outside Granite, WY...WOW is all I can say! EB I80 was at a near standstill. The amount of folks pulled off the HWY was impressive. Folks were set up for miles with their cameras.

    Is 4014 visable from the road?

    Saw those photos but I can't make sense of where it is after driving by. Wherever they parked it they hid it well!

    Is 4014 visable from the road?

    Anybody know if it's possible to view 4014 from the road? If so where? Drove past the yard and I can see LOTS of trains but no Big Boy.

    Anything left of the Knox & Kane?

    Anybody know if there's anything left of the Knox & Kane south of the Kinzua Bridge/Viaduct? I've heard that it was scheduled to be torn up but has it happened yet?

    Trying to hunt down a private car formerly parked in Las Vegas, NV

    Wasn't sure which section to put this in so if I've posted incorrectly mods feel free to move it. :) Back in the early to mid 90's for the longest time there was an old Amtrak car parked next to a building just west(HWY north) of the 'Spaghetti Bowl' on US95 on the east side of the roadway...

    Kate Shelley Bridge

    Been awhile since I've been over the Transcon in Iowa and didn't realize they've built a new parallel bridge. Are they taking the old one down, keeping it for emergencies or abandoning it in place?

    CN Conductor interview (US)

    Can't tell ya about CN but with the UPRR there is a ton of nail biting and waiting then there's an automated phone call a week or less before the interview date telling you to show up. The eventual interview is one on one but first there is a group presentation of the job then a reading...

    SLRG F40PH+Slug on the move and headed east?

    Sure is but I can't take credit for it.

    SLRG F40PH+Slug on the move and headed east?

    Gotcha. I'm not sure about their use for the revamped Ski Train, I thought they were going to use a pair of SD90's with the same paint scheme. Either way it's a shame the Ski Train never came back.

    SLRG F40PH+Slug on the move and headed east?

    Heard a rumor that one of the SLRG F40PH+road slug sets were headed east on the UP to North Platte. Anyone know if there is any truth to this? Also, if there is any truth to this any idea where they're headed? Here's a photo(that I did not take) for reference:

    Questions on a shortline in Upstate, NY

    My job has had me on the east coast quite a bit lately and I recently found myself in the town of Green, New York. There is what appears to be an abandonned line that runs north and parralells NY SR12 for 40 or so miles. Anybody know the history on this line? When it was abandonned and why...
