That is definitely some bad track. Ever seen pics or vids of the Maumee and Western up in Ohio? It's mighty bad as well.

It isn't that big of a deal. It is FRA excepted track obviously, so no passenger or haz mat operation and 10mph speed limit. It looks like one short section where the sub-roadbed has given way. The rest of the line looks fine.

Certainly needs to be top priority to get MOW out, but what we don't know is how long it has been like that, or how long it was until fixed. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
