Response #1 By roc       Thread Started By roc
According to the Yahoo BL Group, today is the last day to observe or photograph Pennsy position light signals:
 
"NS is expected to turn off the signals from CP S Driftwood to CP N Drury on Monday 1/22.
 
if you want to see the PRR position lights in service in this area, today is the last day, unfortunately."

NEW Post By ClydeDET
Well, first trial on the Lac-Megantic derailment and fire has concluded with acquittals for all three defendants on all charges.
 
Mr. Harding (engineer) apparently has more charges, process starting next month. Not sure what else he is charged with.

* My new addition to this thread is a pair of Gilbert C&O F3A's # 31025. They are different in their schemes but identical in their numbers, which is an odd thing for Gilbert HO items. I forgot this is where you can only post one photo in one post so I guess I won't do it here. They would look good together in one post and would't look right in two.
 This is one of them the blue and white one. the other is all blue with white lettering.

Well I guess for now we just speculate.  
 
Doesnt seem this board gets much attention anymore. The WNYP Yahoo group is dead....  
 
I'll keep my ears open, last time I was up there the two plows were OOS and needed work.

Hi,
 
Following a Summer and Autumn spent on our British outline layouts, the winter has seen us return to Mauch Chunk PA in preparation for last weekend's important exhibition at Stevenage (just north of London).
 
Here is an image showing the newly-installed signal bridge on Mauch Chunk.
 
Regards,
 
Richard
