Last week the 1259 had a string of 8 cars on Tuesday, 4 hoppers and 3 flats and 1 boxcar. On Thursday they pulled the 4 loaded Hoppers and 3 empty flats.

It is with great sadness I need to say:

Bob Wyatt, Conrail C&S and THS member passed away this week.

Bob was a larger than life character with and equally big heart.

He was a long time member of the NYSWTHS and among the original THS members to come to the Bel-Del in 2004.

The viewing for Bob Wyatt will take place on Tuesday.

Hi Al, there has been much accomplished on the BDRR this winter (weather permitting, of course). We brought Millie down to Milford for a second time in 2017 for the Halloween weekend festivities in October....

Many more ties were acquired and inserted when the weather permitted....

Image

We cleared the siding into the CPG plant so that the contractor could have access before the track rebuild north of MP41....
Image

And one of the perks of being a part of the crew; a (very) brief stop for a photo op with Millie & our ex-CR flat car pressed into MOW duty earlier this month....
Image

Dozens of more ties are currently laid out and waiting to be inserted, tree & brush clearing crews have also been in full swing over the past few months. The Easter trains were once again a huge success, and the excursion season is nearly upon us. Onwards and upwards as they say, lots of good things ahead for the railroad.

No time frame yet, still work to be done to plant infrastructure to facilitate rail service.

Regular BDRR movements to Milford are still a few years away, although we are working feverishly in our tie replacement program. We will again have 45-tonner #146 & caboose at the Milford Alive festivities on September 22 & 23 for half-hourly caboose hops, so come on out if you are available.

I have no eta on the former MEC hack, perhaps Donko142 can chime in on that.....
