Thanks it was unplanned kinda we were hoping to scout it out what a suprise to see them running.The tracks wernt too shiny but it was awesome.I would have taken alot more but the memory card got full.I only bought 1 but the other one doesn't hold much either.I also hope they use the CF7 in the summer because I read that they sometimes need 2-3 engines on the Seaford branch.Mostly for Solo cup,the Purdue places and Corrpack in Cambridge Which is really neat.Sometimes also in Hurlock They have Rail excursusions in the 2 coaches Hurloch owns you can sorta see in 1 pic. There N&W too.It's this pic. There stored on part of the unused broken Wye.

I was researching the Salisbury trains and found out in the 80's  the MD&DE owned the rails that ran from Clayton,DE to Easton,MD(where I am) and did a rail excursions!! my Dad said they wouldn't let them cross route 50 though If they did it would have ended a few blocks from my house!! before I was born though!!Sadly the rails now end at Route 50 and the ROW is now a Rails to Trails .They also sold the tracks to the Chesapeake Railroad.Which abonden them in 98 and went bankrupt or somethingTruly a sad fate fate for the towns 2 engines still exist but are heavily vandelized and some coaches in Clayton,DE try the 2 sites on it.Also the one that pulled it was 23?? which was renumbered.My guess is that is 1203 because 23 is in the new number.
Check out the sites for more info!

Hopefully it will start off again though a very low chance of it we can still dream!!
Maybe the MD&DE would buy it again and return service that would rule for me though the oxford part is impossible now because it's long gone .
The Easton to Clayton could happen because the rails are "Rail Banked" and are also in better shape than some I've seen and heard of.
 
Happy New Year!!!

50 firefighters extinguish blaze
at Tri-Gas & Oil in Federalsburg
Propane cylinder struck ground, shearing off valve
By WENDY GARNER
Staff Writer
January 18, 2005
 
 
 
 
 
 
FEDERALSBURG A propane fire erupted at Tri-Gas & Oil's corporate headquarters on Federalsburg Road shortly after 9:30 a.m. Monday, but the quick response of firefighters and employees kept damage to a minimum.
 
The incident happened in the vicinity of the LP tank re-qualification building just north of the executive office of Tri-Gas. All employees were immediately evacuated from the area.
 
According to a report filed by Deputy State Fire Marshal Paul Schlotterbeck, Tri-Gas employees were lifting a 1,000-gallon propane cylinder with a backhoe to remove the propane from inside the tank. The tank struck the ground shearing off a valve which allowed liquid propane to escape and come in contact with a nearby ignition source.
 
The fire took 50 firefighters about 45 minutes to bring under control. One employee was taken to Memorial Hospital at Easton with frost burns. There was no report on his condition.
 
Damage to the propane cylinder dock area and building is estimated at $15,000 and damage to its contents is also estmated at $15,000.
 
The Federalsburg Volunteer Fire Company was the first of six stations to respond to the two-alarm call. Federalsburg Fire Chief Steve Cox established command at the site. Hurlock and Preston companies from Maryland, and Bridgeville, Seaford, and Blades from Delaware, also responded with Eldorado-Brookview and Easton on standby.
 
"When we first arrived, the fire was well involved around the dock area," Cox said. "Keith McMahan, Tri-Gas & Oil president, met us immediately. He talked with us quite a bit and pointed out which tanks were of primary concern. This was a great help.
 
"Our main concern was to cool the tanks. I directed an engine around the back of the affected area to keep those tanks cool. When the next engine arrived, I directed them to the front side to keep those tanks cooled. When Hurlock arrived, they took care of the fire inside the dock building. When Hurlock's ladder truck arrived, they set up and quickly vented the roof."
 
Water was directed onto the affected tanks long after the fire had been extinguished to sufficiently cool the containers.
 
A release from Tri-Gas and Oil stated that the company's number one priority has always been safety. All employees involved in the distribution of propane and the servicing of propane appliances and equipment participate in Certified Employee Technical Training sponsored by the National Propane Gas Association.  
 
McMahan serves on NPGA's executive committee. According to a statement issued by Tri-Gas, "Due to Tri Gas & Oil's excellent safety record no accident of this type and size has happened in over 20 years. Propane is an extremely safe source of energy used in all aspects of daily life. This type of occurrence is extremely rare. We thank the local community and fire rescue for reaching out and supporting us."
 
"I can't say enough about our officers," Cox added. "I gave Joe Holland, our third assistant chief, a task with little discussion and it was done to a tee. Our communication all around was great. All of the neighboring companies came quicker than I expected and they did a tremendous job. If it weren't for them, this could have been a lot worse."

Any word on the recent(?) 9 car derailment of an M&D chicken feed train? I saw several photos on it on Trainorders.com
 
Apparently the only casualty was a poor dog that in its dog house that was next to a garage that was crushed under one of the cars. Accident was pretty bad with cars all turned over. Two CF7's were in charge of the train.
