Maybe... I don't know. You might be on to something.

That's just silly, none of that is going to happen, things like that cost money. I think the surprise is the caboose on the Valley Train.

After talking with a friend, the extra to Whitefield should have had the 216 listed and I believe the 573 for the valley train service.

I thought 573 had an electrical problem, why isn't it running on the valley trains?

Is 1751 down for the rest of the year? Has it even been used this year?

I was told by another railfan weather it’s true or not, but the 1751 has either bad wheel set or a traction motor.

What "other railroad's power" could y'all be possibly talking about? NHCR is the only connecting road, and they only have one unit; they need it at least up near Stratford while not making trips south to the pellet drop at Presby. SLR wouldn't think twice about it, we all know the G&W's current stance on passenger ops.

Wipe off the foam, and use a little common sense/logic here.

I wonder when 573/4266 will run down to Conway. Will it be the day before/earlier Saturday?

I'm pretty sure, it will be early Saturday morning before the RDC departs for Redstone. Will the freight extra be running down to Redstone/Saco River Bridge? Or is the RDC really the only schedule train to go down in the morning? This year's schedule seems really simplified. With really only the freight extra and the RDC following close behind it.
Are they no longer going to write Wheel Reports? I used to enjoy reading those.

Didn't the owner used to work for the G&U? Didn't G&U recently get new locomotives, and have an old E something they aren't using?

I agree it is simplified. I think that might be because of 1751 being out for mechanical issues. I don't think the freight extra will run down to Redstone. Also what time should I be there to see the freight extra depart?
