Martin Seyller General Is this line still in use? 5/13/2014 12:58:58 AM
Greg Thompson General YES! The line is still active, although not what I would call a "hotbed of activity" LOL! 5/13/2014 5:39:21 AM
Martin Seyller General Looking on Google Earth, I notice there are two locomotives, mow equipment, 11 tanker car and three hopper cars. Is the fracking activity going on? 5/13/2014 6:15:36 PM
Jonathan Spurlock General Love that bell-and-bracket. too! Nice touch! As for the plow, and the snow, these SW-1's didn't have a lot of horsepower (660?) so I hope it can make it through another winter. 6/23/2014 6:21:09 PM
