Well let's hope NYGL does service, chance to catch an SW running streetside. NS would only use geeps.

(At least I thought nygl had a couple of SW's kicking around)

NYGL had former Erie 436 that they used.

Not to stray off topic but I thought the M&E had one the bid like a year ago?

Just had a conversation on the topic of Campbell Hall (which is off the Dundee topic and I apologize) and I was told that at least 3 bids were placed.

No idea. Just some shop talk that I've been a part of recently. Personally, I'd love to see it end up with anyone other than NS. It would make my job easier.

No idea. I wasn't involved last time. Like I said, anyone but NS and my life gets a lot easier.

Is there any progress on re-opening the Dundee Spur with the NYGL? I haven't heard anything about it in 2 months. Any new info?
I think it may be possible that NJ Transit might not be the perfect, infallible organization that most people assume it is.

Drove by hoping to catch the move but they had taken care of it long before I got by at 9:30A.

NYGL 1267 picked up the two box cars this morning and brought them to Atlantic Coast Fibers.

What happened tp this RR line??? I remember when the would switch everyday at Atlantic coast fibers at least 1 maybe 2 boxcars?? It looks like ACF ships all by truck now! That building was build to bring RR cars right it the building ! now nothing-!! Did inter-model kill this just like it did allot of boxcar deliveries???
