Major bucks aside, I remember the complete Kinzua  Bridge, walked it several times. Historically even the remains have are significant but honestly it's only a shadow of it's former self.

Mantua - Tyco Also produced radial roofed passenger cars. There were two types. Combine car and Passenger car. They were called 1860 cars.  
 
This is the 1860 Combine. Central Pacific colors by Tyco.

Agree. Old bridge would become "clutter" as per the bighams projected view of new structure. Progress in this case is good, new  bridge is elegant

 
The Kinzua Viaduct tragedy also comes to mind. That said, perhaps a truncated section of the bridge. That, however, would take major bucks that would be better spent on road maintenance (no new roads please) and transit.

squeezing in behind the engine house and jammed up against the backdrop is a mock up of 1/2 model compressed Boon St Station.  
 
this is the 4th mock up, each one seems to be bigger than the one before.  it has grown from 7 1/2 inches to 11 inches so far.  next try will lengthen the open shed end.

Im back, boys!  heres more continuing.  Friday,June 15 , Vic west yard, northbound freight: gp38ac #3001, gp35 #5025 , two grey nahx hoppers, 40' red cp box, 3 propane cars, 50 foot brown southern double door boxcar, 50 foot orange cp ribside boxcar, government hopper, 50 foot NW gondola and caboose.    I rode bicycle back toward langford after watching the northbound depart and when I was around the thetis lake overpass area I heard a horn.   A southbound extra  appeared , to my surprise.  Two gp35s, one gp38ac , 39 empty trailertrain flat cars and cabbose.  Obviously this was to set up for a northbound military train.  I didnt catch the northbound military train the next day but guessing from the previous southbound that included seven trailer train flats   that wouldve made the northbound military train 47 cars,including caboose!!

I've been working on models of the Laurel Line infrastructure. Here is a look at the Scranton Station. I've also made the carshops, Scranton Depot, Standard Beef Building (building in front of the depot) and the small Laurel Line Dispatchers office.

It is better to compose complicated replies in a text editor and then paste it to the forum post editor rather than rely on your browser window to keep intact. Most browsers don't cache text that is in web page FORM elements so if you accidentally hit anything that changes the window contents you lose the partially composed post.
 
I didn't mean for you to go to all that trouble Frank. I was just going by the three porthole sides and high fans on the Gilberts while the Lionel F3's had two porthole sides and later low fans. I think Lionel's were done in 1948 with help from GM/EMD.

* Because I went back to assist in getting a good answer for Henry and acquired the link above, then I came back and this site threw away all I have composed. It was a large paragraph. I guess henry the link will have to do. You could go there and look it up. You will see that L-3003 is one of the last few Gilbert F3's given Gilbert numbers and that was 1956. I have B&O F3a 421 it I think is 1946. That is a 10 year period and may help with the design date Henry spoke of.

Well in 1966, not Penn Central yet. PRR. nd not ANYTHING close to AT&SF service. Not on time, either (except leaving Chicago).
 
Had occasion to go to Chicago mid to late 1974, on Uncle's nickel. Equipment was ex-Santa Fe (cars - power was AMTRAK SDP-40Fs, two of them), and one (put on at Fort Worth) former CB&Q Cal Zephyr round-end dome observation/sleeper/lounge. Wonderful view, but A/C wasn't working, so nobody in the rooms. Crew was still ex-Santa Fe and meals were what they had been Good.

there is a view block 3 1/2 inches in front of the backdrop covered in "improved lichen" (lichen dipped in rubber cement and then in salvaged ground foam) from "the vault of the ages" (a box of stuff salvaged from 50 years of model railroading)  
the view block conceals the "escape track" which connects the staging yards

Tried to think of a polite answer to this, but think I will just answer straight out since your company is not paying me either directly or indirectly.  
This is where you should have started instead of trying to get a freeby out of fans.  If you want a local guide you could probably find one for a fee find help.  (Note to anyone thinking about being such:  Do not underprice yourself.  They should be willing to put out some serious money here.  This is from one who knows the difference between his pay rate, which ain't bad and what my employer charges for my time.)
 
So far seems that we have been pulling factual information out one item at a time. Back to the last unanswered question:
 
What is the commodity, or at the least, is it placarded and with what placard?  Follow this up with any and all useful information, such as waybilled destination, why Gainsville, more specifics on last known sighting where and when, etc., etc.  Otherwise you are wasting your time and ours.

If you want a local guide you could probably find one for a fee find help......
 
Sometimes I have this problem in finding rail cars also.  
 
I would like to know if there are any forums or places to contact rail fanners that may be able to see certain yards or have access if they are in the biz.  This is something that I know our company would pay for if price was reasonable. Obviously, honesty here is important so I will state first off that my company is in the rail car leasing and sales biz. Some of our business is brokered sales or leases and so when it comes to getting information on rail cars thru Steelroads or the individual Class I's - not being a party to the waybill makes it very difficult to find a car sometimes past the track and trace reporting. This post sounds like that scenario.
 
 I've been looking for a particular car myself so I stumbled on this post and curiosity made me check it out. I am coming up hard pressed to even find a yardmaster's phone number sometimes, so it would be nice to know that I could check the forums to see if there was anyone out there willing to check a yard or an industry side track if they are in the area.
 
Thanks, Chris

Here are some photos of the barge unloading taken today. I took a break from work and went over to the yard for an hour. Soon I will try to take a set showing both the unloading and loading. The slight orange hazy look in the photos is from the smoke over Nanaimo being blown west from the forest fires in the B.C. interior.

#25 brought up our flat with the Jennies (yes two Generators as we got a used one from Jack's Cousin).  The red one is the old one.  An electric chain saw is much quieter and the jennie is a ways off so it doesn't add much noise.

Today we were out cleaning off branches from the big tree on the CBE branch.  We got the wood chipper on the tractor and made some big piles of MULCH!  Here is a pic of what we did, compare to the previous post of it.  As a side note, it is hard to get a pic that really shows the work involved.  The white spots are two of the piles, the third is to close to the bank to get into the shot.

Hi Bobby,
 
Probably a week's worth of wood when split.  We are busy clearing down trees!  More pics to come.  I hope I won't bore everyone.

Amazing.  Looks like it could have been shaped and put there by design.  Is this high enough to go under?  Looks to be maybe for equipment, but too low for riders on top?  Would be an interesting feature if it could be left.

 
Hi George, well the flat cars could go under it, but we use the spur to load wood so we will cut it up and haul it to the woodshed.  Sometime the coach may go up here and it wouldn't clear.

Clear Lake had a tree down on the spur track and it missed hitting it from the arch in the tree.
We lucked out again!

I headed back to my hometown for a class reunion last month, with a slight detour along the way. I was trying to intercept the NS Erie heritage unit, so I drove over to the Southern Tier Mainline. Unfortunately, NS 22K ( led by #1068 ) was delayed. However, I did manage a nice grab of NS 37T... which had a KCS unit leading.

All photos in the link and the photo in this post were taken by me Saturday 7/15/2017 in Cameron, NY. The Erie RR referred to this location as Brown's Crossing back in the day.

Guess I should get the maps out, but that sounds right. Goes through Crockett and on south.

Well, he will, if he follows the Trump guidelines, get a lot of push-back from people nd organizations invested in the regulations as they exist. Like a lot of other things - will just have wait, watch, and see.
