Welcome to Short Lines, a place to discuss happenings on all your favorite 'little railroads'.  From the huge multi-railroads lines such as G&W or R.J. Corman to the smallest lines such as the NDC Railroad and everything in between, it's all welcome here! Just remember to keep it clean and have a good time here in Short Lines...

I am working for RJ Corman West Virginia Line on the old CSX Loup Creek line between Thurmond and Pax. We started in July this year hauling coal for Foundation Coal at their new loadout at Pax to Thurmond. We use CSX power and cars interchanging at Thurmond Rush Run Siding. We generally receive 100 empties from CSX taking them to Pax. We cut train in half, load fifty, and return first cut to Rush Run siding at Thurmond. We use two "tunnel motor GP40's to push loads at Pax. After we clear first cut, the pusher loads second cut and waits for CSX locomotives to return for second cut to return to Rush Run.
I would be interested in hearing from former C&O traincrew members that may have worked on this line, or others with experience operating at restricted speed on steep grades. Thank you

Where do I find info on the Morris and Essex of New Jersey?
I have tried "search", but it doesn't work for me.
