Topic Summary
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Dec 15th, 2004, 9:15pm

The Maryland and Delaware is a 120 Mile Shortline Railroad which is the only surviving near me. I saw some Rails in Cambridge,Md (around 20 min away from me) a while ago and did a google search and it turns out it's a Class 3 shortline with Headquaters in Federalsburg Md.It normally operates a RS3M 1203 or CF7 2628 around Cambridge .I haven't seen the units because I thought it was a Fallen Flag until now.
It serves 2 industrys Corrpack ,Hastings in Cambridge, Many more around the system.
Check out there site http://www.mdde.com/index.html
For a more detailed Map of Cambridge try here
  http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?formtype=address&searchtype=address&country=US&addtohistory=&address=&city=Cambridge&state=Md&zipcode=
I traced it to Dover on Mapquest
It doesn't get much use but my Railfanning goal is to see it !!!.
It's a cool  Shortline which doesn't get in the paper  all that often (i've never seen it in the paper but I may have missed it ).  
It's of Conrail and Penn Centrel Heratige I can't wait to See it for myself.It also has interchanges with NS and CSX.
Like the NDC the have  RS3M's 3 of 'em

Hey, BC, is that the rail line that runs next to US 13 on the Delmarva Peninsula. I drove next tosome railroad for miles last May after I got off the Ches. Bay Bridge/Tunnel on my was to NJ via the ferry at Lewis.
Is this the area that your from. I ask because I'm not familiar with that area.
I sure would like to know which railroad that was originally and what it is now.
         Thanks,
         Bruce

Probably I'll check the  Highway maps in a minute.
It was of Penn centrel and Conrail heratige Conrail Formed it in Augast 1977.
I've been near it for my whole life and now just find out about .
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Dec 16th, 2004, 3:43pm
Parts of it may have been but most of it would be NS of ex-Conrail,Which may be operated by them on some joint agreement try here http://www.mdde.com/maps.html for a map of the tracks The green lines are very close to US 13 so it was most Likely NS and parts MD&DE

Thanks, BC, that must be the line that I followed for many miles on my way to the  Cape May ferry. I was wondering if that was an old PRR line headed south to the end of the peninsula back in the days of car floats to Norfolk.
Very interesting. I'd sure like to know more about that area.

 It's now NS and MD&DE of Conrail and Penn centrel heratige The PRR made its mark by going to Easton and Oxford for that line it ran it's last 4-4-0's on that line.
I was on mapquest and did a search on cambridge and came up with 6 potential areas near the track like crossings and a few that follow the rails a little.
I plan to track and scope the areas soon.
 
Long live the Seaford/Cambridge division of the MD&DE RR.

Bruce -
Not to confuse things, but there's also the Delaware Coast Line that runs from its interchange with NS at Georgetown DE to the SPI Pharma antacid factory at Cape Henlopen (very near the Cape May-Lewes ferry terminal).
Posted by: George_Harris Posted on: Dec 16th, 2004, 9:46pm
The line parallel to US 13 up the Delmarva penninsula from Cape Charles:
 
For a while I was working for an engineering company that provided technical advice on this line so I know a few things about it.  My knowlede is from the 1978 to 82 time frame.  
 
In the late 70's this was the Virginia and Maryland, operated by the Accomack Northhampton Transportation District Commission.  It ran from Pocomoke City, Maryland to Cape Charles Virginia, plus a carfloat across Chesapeake Bay into Norfolk at Little Creek and a connecting track to the Norfolk Southern (the original NS that operated from its namesake city down into eastern North Carolina).  I see that the branch to Kiptopeke from Cape Charles is still shown on Mapquest, but did not remember that it was operated, even in the late 70's.  The ferry ran from Cape Charles, not Kiptopeke.  I notice that the line into Little Ferry is not shown on Mapquest but is shown on the USGS quads in Topozone.  However, given the general level of accuracy of Mapquest on railroads, the absence there may not prove anything.  The Little Creek harbor and ferry terminal is just northeast of the Norfolk Airport.    
 
Most traffic on the line came by way of the carfloat, if I remember correctly.  
 
They had one engine and few cars (none?).  At the time it was a struggle to keep in in 10 mph condition.  The hope was to eventually get the tie condition up to be able to operate at 25 mph.  The Commission had no budget whatsoever for new rail.  Fortunately the rail was almost all old 130 PS.  This heavy a rail overcame some of the problems of the poor tie and ballast condition.  The line was also virtually dead straight and flat, so there were no grade issues and few curve problems.

I may be able to clear up some confusion here.  The rail line alongside the highway between Cape Charles, VA and Pocomoke City, MD is the Eastern Shore Railroad.  This company is owned by the Accomack Northhampton District Transportation Authority.  The track is ex-PRR and was operated by the Virginia & Maryland RR from the summer of 1977 until the fall of 1981 when the Eastern Shore took over.  (The corporate structure of the Virginia & Maryland RR continues today under a new name - the Arkansas & Missouri RR.)  The Maryland & Delaware RR to which you refer was under common ownership with the V&M. (J.A. "Tony" Hannold and others, including me)  The MDDE is currently owned by John Paredes, Eric Calloway, former Hannold-era employees and attorney Ed Banks.  Like the V&M, the MDDE was organized in 1977 to operate ex-PRR lines that didn't get included in Conrail.
Posted by: blabey Posted on: Dec 17th, 2004, 1:25am
To add to Mr. Harris' comments about the V&M at startup in 1977:
    It's true that the tie condition was simply awful.  When we began operations it took crews 10-11 hours to make the 64-mile trip from Cape Charles to the Conrail interchange at Pocomoke City.  At one point we had a "standing still" derailment in Nassawadox, VA.  The northbound train was stopped ( I think the crew was having lunch) a couple of cars loaded with utility poles toppled over as the rails gave way.  The poles spilled over on the highway causing a hell of a problem.  But it was helpful in getting the attention of the state and freeing up the rehabilitation funding.  With those state grants, we finally caught up on years of PRR deferred maintenance.  Eventually the V&M got the whole line up to 25 mph.  
  Our primary motive power was a group of ex-LIRR high-nose C420's.  We also had two RS-1's and ex-NS T6 Alcos (used on the Little Creek, VA side of the bay).   Alco C420 No. 200 eventually ended up on the Livonia, Avon & Lakeville (where it is now in service as LAL No. 420) One of the C420's ended up on the bottom of Chesapeake Bay when it went off the barge after the Eastern Shore Railroad had taken over from us.  A couple of the other C420's went to the NYSW (now all scrapped).  C420 No. 201 ended up on on the Bufalo Southern RR, where I think it is numbered 2010.  The RS-1's and the T6's went to the Arkansas & Missouri.
Posted by: George_Harris Posted on: Dec 17th, 2004, 1:57am
To blabey:
 
Thanks for the update and correction.  I can see that my memory had gotten way off on some things, like the power, but then I was only ever asked about track questions that the ex-CRIP trainmaster that we had doing most of the V&M related work did not know how to answer.  
 
Eastern Shore Railroad.  Maybe I can keep that in my occasionally sieve like memory.
 
Also, my 1982 date was wrong. I should have hit 81.   My involvement with the subject ceased in July 1981 when my job unexpectedly dissapeared.  After a few paniced weeks looking for work the stages being: engineering work, reasonably well paid work, who cares what kind of work, can I be sure the paycheck won't bounce? , I got a job doing inspection on a pipeline construction job for a few months, and it was nearly 5 years before I was consistently back into railroad / rail transit related engineering.  
 
Is the car float operation still going?  Did the track change around the Norfolk Airport ever happen?  At one point we did plans for a major simplification (and reduction in size) of the Little Creek carfloat yard, and if I remember right, changing the location of the car float ramp.  Did that ever happen?

Thankyou guys. One and all. I never would have never guessed at all the history that had taken place there as I drove along that rail line on US 13.
Thanks for all the really great old and more recent history of the rail activity on the Delmarva Peninsula. It certainly is interesting to me.
           Happy Holidays to All,

Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Dec 17th, 2004, 5:03pm
I agree with bruce I didn't know about that history either.
 
I saw some of the MD&DE rails earlier and seem to be in very good shape hopefully there be in use for atleast another 25 years. No trains though.

Went out this morning and were planning on just tracing the rails and looking for good  photo oppertunities.So we called the office and they were operating Federalsburg to Hurlock.We were neer there and Saw a headlight it was 1203 thank goodness I bought my camera!!I got about 20 pics (the memory card got full)And will post most of them.I hope my camera wasn't blury were getting a new one soon.
Also the main road from Hurlock to Federalsburg Follows the tracks very close a jump out of the car and you have some pics they don't go fast either

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!

http://abandonedrailroads.homestead.com/DE_Clayton_OxfordMD_PRR.html
 
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.

Train Jumps Tracks in Worcester County
 
[Eight rail cars carrying corn jumped the tracks. (Photo: WBOC)
The crash destroyed a garage, killing the owner's dog in the process.]
 
NEWARK, Md.- An accident early Thursday shut down a local railroad
crossing and destroyed a garage
south of Newark, Md. It happened around 8:30 a.m. near the
intersection of Route 113 and Basket
Switch Road.
 
A rail broke and caused eight rail cars carrying corn to jump the
tracks, according to Eric
Callaway, the president of the shortline Maryland and Delaware
Railroad.
 
One of the train cars ran into a large garage belonging to homeowner
Vaughn Dale, whose home is
located on Route 113. The collision caused the garage to collapse.
Inside the building were
bicycles, tools and a brand new car that sustained damage.
 
Dale said the train sounded like a tornado coming through.
 
"I knew the train was coming by and I looked out the window and I see
all this commotion and the
cars and what not, falling off," Dale said. "I said, 'Oh Lord, it's
done jumped the tracks.'"
 
Dale's 6-year-old collie dog was killed by the garage's collapse, but
no people were injured.
Callaway said the railroad plans to provide compensation for the loss
of the dog.
 
The 50-car train was corn from Frankford, Del., to the Tyson chicken
feed mill in Snow Hill,
Callaway said.
 
A clean-up crew from Richmond, Va., has arrived on the scene with
cranes and other equipment to
clean up the accident.
 
Officers are still investigating what happened.

Great tour of the M&D! A terrific chronicle of this li'l RR at work. Great to see an RS3 in revenue freight service.  
 
Next time I'm in the Rehoboth area, I'll hafta take a side trip west to Seaford and have a look around.   Maybe I'll have some luck.

True, but I've only ever seen one RS3 on the D-L...and it wasn't hauling anything at the time.  I think it was one of the ex-D&H units if I'm not mistaken.

Here ya go Charlie, NDC 99 hauling covered hoppers. Northampton , PA (sorry I know this is off topic). A lot of railroads use RS3 and RS3m's including MD&DE and NDC, DL, Battenkill, and so on, it's just a matter of hoping they are operating when one visits the railroads...
Posted by: Mark J Posted on: Apr 7th, 2005, 11:26pm
That sure is one classy looking RS3 they have.
 
Hey by the way I thought you folks might be interested in seeing one (I believe) of M&D's CF7's before it went to M&D.  In 1998 then Burlington Northern sold a branch line to an independant operator who leased this sucker from NREX for about a year in 1998.  
 
Here is CF7 2632 in south central British Columbia Canada near Fruitvale in 1998.
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Apr 15th, 2005, 10:37pm
Cool!!!Thanks for sharing  that!! It looks really   (im not sure how i missed this   )
Posted by: simca Posted on: Jul 22nd, 2005, 11:49am
Hi,
 
The CF7 in the picture is actually Keokuk Junction #2632, which was previously ATSF #2632.
 
MDDE's #2632 was formerly Black River and Western #42, previously ATSF #2421.
 
Note that KJ #2632, like MDDE's #2628 and #2630, has the round cab profile shared by CF7s built from 1969 through 1976 (#2649 down through #2472).  MDDE #2632 has the squared-off cab profile used in 1977 and 1978 (#2471 through #2417).  Many -- most -- rounded roofline CF7s later had their cabs rebuilt to a squared-off profile.  These rebuilt-cab units can be identified from units built originaly with a squared-off cab by having one fewer side window and a one-piece (rather than two-piece) engineer's window.
 
I'm not sure why MDDE chose to number the CF7s with even numbers in the 2600 range when all their other units are horsepower-based.  #2628 is the original ATSF #2628, but #2630 was renumbered by the railroad -- it was ATSF #2531 (ATSF #2630 was scrapped...).  I would have thought they'd become #1501-#1503.
 
On another CF7 note, the original CF7, #2649, is long gone, but the second is in lease sevice for Watco and the third is on the Pioneer Valley and was just rebuilt.  The last CF7 is active as Maryland and Pennsylvania/Yorkrail #1500 just a few hours drive from MDDE.

BC,
 
I just stumbled onto this thread now, and I really enjoyed your photos. It doesn't really matter that you "lost the train" again - the pics you were able to take more than made up for it. Nice job, and keep up the great work!

Does anyone know how the Seaford line withstood the storm?
Reports on the news said they lost some track a bridge, somewehre between Federalsburg and Hurlock. Federalsburg is also on the national news due to 4-5 feet of flooding in some areas. Including Railroad Ave. Where there office, shop/shed and transload facilitys are. I also found a article in the star democrat news paper about it:

Floods in Caroline, Dorchester
By STEVE NERY, Staff Writer
June 26, 2006

Railroad Avenue in Federalsburg collapsed due to flash flooding after nearly nine inches of heavy rain Sunday. Federalsburg declared a state of emergency early Sunday morning.

This railroad track along Route 307 near Hurlock was damaged by floodwaters.
 
Powerful, prolonged rainfall caused severe flooding and washed out roads in areas of northern Dorchester and southern Caroline counties Sunday morning.
 
Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. ordered state agencies to provide whatever assistance was necessary in the two counties, as Federalsburg, Hurlock and Galestown all suffered serious flooding. Emergency management authorities said they had not heard of any deaths or serious injuries.
 
The rain began early Sunday morning and lasted until the afternoon, resulting in around a foot of accumulation in some areas. The National Weather Service is also predicting at least a 40 percent chance of rain each day through Thursday.
 
About 50 people in Caroline and Dorchester counties had to be evacuated, Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) spokesman Jeff Welsh said.
 
Federalsburg Mayor Betty Dallas declared a state of emergency about 8:15 a.m.
 
Donald Nagel, the chief of police in Federalsburg, said low-lying areas in the town were flooded Sunday morning, and about 45 people were voluntarily evacuated. They spent the day at the town fire hall, eating soup and sandwiches and watching TV, but all had returned to their homes by late afternoon as the water began to recede.
 
“We got very lucky. Thank God for the sun,” Nagel said.
 
Authorities said it was unclear how much damage was caused by the flooding. There were no reports of deaths or serious injuries.
 
Caroline County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ron Dixon spent the day helping evacuate Federalsburg residents. He said the heavy rain had stopped by early afternoon, and the water had subsided a great deal by 5 p.m.
 
“I don’t think there’s been any panic,” Dixon said. “Everyone understands it’s better to err on the side of caution.”
 
The Marshy Hope Creek, which runs through town, overflowed its banks, and children waded in hip-deep water.
 
Federalsburg received between 10 and 12 inches of rain overnight. Some church services were canceled Sunday, and parishioners helped to clean out flooded basements.
 
Janice Todd, 47, helped haul soggy carpet out of the basement of Park Lane Church of God.
 
“We had to rip carpets out of two rooms,” she said. “We’ve had just a little bit of damage — nothing we won’t overcome.”
 
One family confronted the possibility of a difficult loss. Terry Cheesman, 47, and his 14-year-old daughter, Ashley, said their pony, a 14-year-old named Misty, was missing. But they were helping their church and their neighbors before beginning to look for her.
 
“I was crying. I was real upset,” Ashley Cheesman said. “We’re just hoping she’s found higher ground. We just have to help our neighbors first.”
 
Billy Hepperle was helping his parents clean up Mom & Pop’s Place, the pool hall and bar they own on Main Street. He said water ran down a hill across the street from the bar and through the front door, but he expected the bar, which is closed Sundays, to be open for business on Monday.
 
“We got lucky because a lot of stuff didn’t get damaged, just some carpet around the bar,” Hepperle said.
 
Talbot County was more fortunate, although National Weather Service Observer John Swaine Jr., who makes his measurements from Royal Oak, recorded 5.6 inches of rain. While flash flooding caused several roads to close Sunday morning, only Deep Branch Road and Island Creek Road remained closed by Sunday evening, a Talbot County Emergency Management Agency dispatcher said.
 
In Dorchester County, water levels in areas surpassed the tops of cars and stop signs, Emergency Management Director Wayne Robinson said, as creeks overflowed from the sudden rainfall.
 
First Sgt. Russell Newell, a spokesman for the Maryland State Police, said at least 20 Dorchester County roads were closed.
 
He said Route 307, a state road, has been completely washed out in a large section down to the gravel. He said the road will have to be completely rebuilt in order to be used again.
 
“It is quite a serious situation,” he said. “There’s a lot of roads that have been disabled due to heavy rains and flooding.”
 
Several roads will likely remain shut down for weeks due to damage, Robinson noted.
 
Dick Newcomb, who lives on Mt. Zion Road near Skinner’s Run Creek in Dorchester County, said he pulled three cars off Skinner’s Run Road with his tractor. After talking to authorities, he eventually left the tractor on the road to prevent people from trying to navigate the flooded road.
 
Newcomb noted he saw crawfish leaving the overflowing river in search of dry ground.
 
A spillway in Galestown suffered some damage, Welsh, the MEMA spokesman, said, but an assessment could not yet be made. MEMA will send out teams this morning to get a better idea of damage in both counties, he added.
 
“We’re in a very rocky stretch of weather right now, with more bad weather forecasted,” he said.
 
Federalsburg Police Chief Donald Nagel said everyone had returned to their homes by Sunday evening with the exception of people on the east side of Main Street. Most of the water had subsided by Sunday evening. A MEMA command center remained to handle problems.
 
Lightning caused multiple scattered outages throughout the area Saturday night and heavy rains and wind brought additional outages Sunday, Choptank Electric Cooperative spokesman Anne Whaples said.
 
The Federalsburg substation lost power about 7:45 a.m. due to transmission problems experienced by Delmarva Power, Whaples aid. Trees and broken poles on Delmarva lines rendered the station powerless.
 
At the height of the outage, 1,300 Choptank members in the Federalsburg area and northern Dorchester area were without power.
 
Most people had power back by 2 p.m., Whaples said, but about 175 members were still out at 4 p.m. Significant flooding in the Federalsburg area hampered repairs.
 
The American Red Cross set up shelters in both Hurlock and Federalsburg, but they were not extensively used. The Red Cross left both towns by Sunday evening.
 
Welsh, the MEMA spokesman, said there were reports of 4 to 5 feet of water in parts of northern Dorchester and southern Caroline County. He also said a spillway in Galestown near the Delaware state line was at risk of giving way, but that no one would be in danger if the spillway gave. He said the Maryland Department of the Environment was sending engineers to inspect it.
 
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources sent boats to assist in rescue operations if necessary, Welsh said.
 
Mike Zeigler, an assistant director of the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, said there were some evacuations in the Galestown area of Dorchester County. A Maryland National Guard UH-60 helicopter has been deployed to survey flooded areas on the Eastern Shore.
 
In Seaford, Del., Amy Walls, a spokesman for the city, said between 10 and 15 people were evacuated from homes in an area known for flooding. She also said flooding caused some cars to get stuck at intersections, and city officials were urging people to stay off the streets.
 
Associated Press Writers Kristen Wyatt in Federalsburg and Brian Witte in Baltimore contributed to this report.

From the tv there appears to be a bridge washout at Williamsburg, MD (outside of Federalsburg).  Washout aside, the track looks to be in good shape, well ballasted with good ties, etc.  What is the traffic on this line anymore?

Yeah, the bridge seems to be gone. I saw a vid of it on WBOC somewhere.  
Most of the tracks in really good shape. Well it was... From the pics and video it seems most of the tracks held well...  
On the Seaford line it really depends,(The flooded one) Its as needed, weekdays only. Its possible to see 10-20 car trains on Average, and sometimes even longer depending on how much is needed by Purdue in Hurlock and other customers. They could run all 5 days, or no days, I always call the night before to find it. And they also normally will tell me where there heading to for the day. The only bad this is they start really early! (7:00-7:30)

I just happend to be on my way to the beach and saw the engine. No one was around and it was late in the day. I did see the NS on the way back to Harrington but I was late and did not want to take the time to turn around and catch up to it.
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Sep 13th, 2006, 9:54pm
Good to know I dont have to be there at 7-8am to catch um like in Federalsburg, They tend to leave around 8ish there. Then catching them can be a intersting task....

1201 this spring in Massey.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 1st, 2006, 5:17pm
801 also from the spring. They have been using on the Centreville run this week.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 16th, 2006, 2:07pm
801 comes into Massey bringing 5 box cars four of them their own up from Centreville and Sudlersville. They dropped their four box cars picked up cars from mill in town and tank cars up from the Chestertown line.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 16th, 2006, 2:10pm
801 heads up twoards the interchange in Townsend Del. This shot is between Massey and Golts in Kent Co.Md.

Anyone have a pic of switcher #802?  I've never seen this unit.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 21st, 2006, 4:59pm
Caught 1202 coming north into Barclay past the REEB Millwork siding today. They had just picked up cars from CPS in Carville and Perdue in Ingleside.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 21st, 2006, 5:02pm
1202 crossing Rt.302
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 21st, 2006, 5:04pm
Now crossing Rt.313
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 21st, 2006, 5:07pm
At this point the train is only about two cars short of covering the entire town at once.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 21st, 2006, 5:13pm
Last one. Once in Massey they picked up several tank cars from Worton left in Massey this morning. Then took them to the interchange.
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Nov 23rd, 2006, 2:37pm
Wow!
Lots of action around there.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 23rd, 2006, 6:01pm
It is the busy  time of year. I am not sure but I think that they had been running 1202 on the Chestertown run and 801 on the Centreville run then putting the train together in Massey and taking it to the interchange with one of them. As I had been hearing 801 every day for a week  going through Millington,and it made two runs down the centreville line in one day that week.
The day I caught 801 at Massey there were cars waiting on the Chestertown line with the time of day I don't think they could have gone to Worton picked up cars then gone to Centreville as well. There were also more cars in the yard lot than usual.
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Nov 23rd, 2006, 6:43pm
Good to know its busy over there...
I saw them about a week ago, Bout a 10 car train on the Seaford line, Not bad, 2628 is still the power, 1203's in the engine house/shop...

Does anyone know the status of the Bay Coast Railroad's intentions to start a tourist railline? Last I read was that some passenger cars were ordered and there was going to be a station built along Route 13 near Cape Charles..
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 30th, 2006, 11:08am
Caught 1202 heading light back to Massey today on the Centreville line.  The next two shots are from the High Bridge road overpass just north of Millington MD. 1202 is north of the bridge in this shot.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 30th, 2006, 11:12am
1202 now just south of the bridge. Most likely they dropped cars off at Perdue as they had none yesterday.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Nov 30th, 2006, 11:15am
I then went the mile north into Millington to try and catch her in town. Almost made it.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Mar 27th, 2007, 4:53pm
Today's Star Democrat had a story reporting that a contractor had removed the rails from the Cambridge Branch  north of Washington St. in Cambridge.  that section of the line is not currently used but it is not abandond and the State who owns the track was unaware. The person who was taking the rail out told someone that he was doing it for a rails to trails group, but they also claim to be unaware,as they have no approval from the state. MDDE still uses the line up to just south of this area.
 
Next I took some shots on the Centreville Branch today.

Just north of High Bridge the tresspassers decided to get off of the bridge as the train approached.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Apr 5th, 2007, 6:54pm

As we head north with five cars I get a shot of the reason for my trip at Price. the engineer was well into blowing the horn when this guy went accross.  the driver was shook up enough that he stopped on the other side and pulled over.

And I finally got a cab ride.....Yeah.....Anyway. Engine 2628 was on Hurlock duty this year. I think they need to put a 6 chime on her. A 5 chime isn't loud enough . I should have pictures by today.

MDDE 1201 was taken down to Sudlersville this past Tuesday. The unit has been sitting out of service next to the Massey Engine house for the past couple of years. Last week they moved it from the engine house accross to CPS in Massey before the move to Sudlersville. Not sure the reason for the move unless it has to due with a big event in town this weekend.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Oct 17th, 2007, 3:14pm

It was to go out for repair at some point but has not, so I would say it is not running currently. But I could be wrong. I have spent a day in 1202 and for 50 years and counting she is doing rather well. There are many newer engines no longer running.
As Massey has 1202 and 801 I would guess getting her running is not high on the list of priorities.

You mean the MD&DE engines or other make of engines?

I think 1203 was in the engine house. Maybe they just figured that 2628 looked better on a passenger train then 1203 would. I don't really know.

I would imagine that it was due to the switching being done that the one loco was mid train....appearing as a "helper."

I thought that would get some questions. 1202 was the power 1201 does not currently run and was down there for an event last weekend (see earlier post) It was in the in front of the cars they needed and had to be moved around. As she is most likley not going to run again (at least here) I was trying to get some last time movement shots.

I have some N scaled ones, for #1201. Need to repaint my RS3 sometime, haha.
 
I'll try to scan them sometime...
Posted by: SRC#90_KB3PQD Posted on: Nov 14th, 2007, 5:58pm
That's cool. Where did you get the decals from? Or are they just from a regular decal sheet? I hope you'll be able to scan them, I'd really like to see them.

One more question. What shade of red are the engines? I'm guessing a dark cherry red? I'm not sure. Thanks.

Well, here's the very first MDDE F7A . Not yet numbered yet. It's actually red, the picture just makes it pink.

I've always thought they were more of a maroon myself.
Lookin good so far, Woulda looked better spraypainted though.
Technically, MDDE has a few F7s, well, they were at one point in there lives.  
 
Edit: Oh yeah, its just a single decal, at the very least I'll take a pic or two, I dunno if the scanner still works.  
I got them at Howards Hobby shop, Its in East New Market, no idea if it's still around, I think I got his last set though.
Posted by: SRC#90_KB3PQD Posted on: Nov 15th, 2007, 7:02pm
I would've sprayed painted it, but I don't have a spraypainter yet. Maroon huh? Hmmmm....Well I'm not repainting it . I didn't know MDDE had F7A's. That's pretty cool.

I got my decals at Dennison's Hobby shop in Burlin, MD. There $4.95 for a sheet of eight MDDE RR signs, and two of every engine they have execpt fot 801 and 802. He still has them, but he's more then likely going out of busness after Christmas. So if you want more, you better hury up .

I need to get down there sometime.
 
And can anyone confirm 1203 is back in service? I found some pics from last month of her in cambridge.
And Cambridge also seems to have some sort of loading track now, and a run around track? Its near the Wawa from what I've heard. Haven't gone down to investigate.

I was at the dispatch center today when the call came in that the crossing light at 301 in Centreville did not go out. After I told the dispatcher were to call (he called a terror hotline the first time). I went out to find the train to of course take pictures.
 
Found 1202 working CPS in Carville.

It Memoral Day. I doubt a short line like them would run. Even the NS Delmar local didn't even run.

Hi Guys:
 
Does anyone have a picture of MDDE #802 they could share?
 
Or, failing that, could anyone describe her paint scheme?  What is this locomotive's pedigree?  Conrail/PC?
Posted by: LDS Railfan Posted on: May 28th, 2008, 8:19am
From what I know, she's still in her CR colors.

I haven't been able to make it down there for awhile, So she could be back already.
Posted by: pablo Posted on: Jul 7th, 2008, 9:53am
Well, let's try this here.
 
I'm down in Dewey Beach, and I might be able to catch some action on the line if there's action to be had.  
 
I'm 10 miles from Lewes, and can obviously move further.  
 
What might I be able to see? Any clues?  
 
Thanks in advance!

Lets see. It sounds like your close to the Delaware Coast Line. I'm not 100% sure, though.
Posted by: BC_and_A_railway Posted on: Jul 7th, 2008, 1:29pm
Yeah, Lewes is the Delaware Coast Line.
There based out of Georgetown, DE. There located by the big airfield inside an industrial park thing. It took me ages to find it the first time, haha. But there really nice people and will let you walk all around and take pictures if you ask. As for catching them in Lewes? I can't help, as I've never done it. Every time I've gone there no trains are running. .

Nice shots Chris. There are 106 empties coming for Perdue for grain season, so there will be alot more action on the Centreville Line soon.
 
The bids are in and RCC of New Jersery has got the bid for the repairs on Chestertown Line. Not sure when they are going to start but i'll keep you posted.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Aug 19th, 2008, 5:37pm
Thanks, that is were the high rail was going to inspect the track for the empties as nothing has been past tidewater for quite a while.
The county wants to make a trail of that part of track so nice to see some RR use.

Well 1202 was able to get the days job done. I found them late today dropping off 22 empties on the line in Price. Then they took 17 more empties to Perdue and dropped them off on the line. The passing track and the spur into perdue were already full of cars. as well as both sidings in Sudlersville. There are more empties on the way.
 
1202 just North of Price picking up a crew member that was brought around from the rear of the consist as they had done a reverse move from Roberts.

Yes 1201 died. She made it as far as MP 14.2 almost to Speer Rd.  
We had to go back and pick-up 1202, pull 1201 and the freight back to Massey. Long day, but we got the job done.

Who's going to the Hurlock Days this year? It's the first Saturday in Oct. My brother and I are going to be conductors again. Here are some pictures from last year.
 
Jason, do some of these people look familiar?
 
First picture: Jason is switching the cars back into the siding.

 

 
Here's Jason and my brother on the front of 2628.

 

 
BTW, does anyone know what engine is running? It's probably 2628 again, right?
Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Sep 18th, 2008, 7:01pm
90 cars for Perdue are online. They are spaced out around the Centreville line. As of now, there are 35 on the main in Roberts, 29 on the main in Price, 11 in the siding, and 15 in the Sudlersville runaround and storage track. The lineup of these cars sure make an MU (rare on this line) a possibility in the near future, provided 1201 gets back up on its feet and stays there.
 
As for Hurlock Days, you only get two choices. If the engineer (JB!) is the one from the Snow Hill line, its a very good possibility it'll be 2628.

There are 17 in Roberts right now on the main, 6 in the siding, 3 coming on line tomorrow, and 15 in Sudlersville to be moved and put on top of the rest. Yes, that string in Price will be getting longer. There had been talk about moving them across 301 past the runaround. That may still happen, but Perdue Lynch is already loading and Roberts won't be too far behind. Must be grain season, eh Jason?
 
KentQARR, how long have you worked QACoSD? Is that the right abbreviation? Are you still volunteering at the Wilmington and Western?

It's QASO (office not Dept) and 10 plus years. I am at the WWRR about 4 times a month. If they need help with traffic pushing accross 301 Joe can give me a call.

You should come play with our coaches if you want a PAIN, especially the former MU. Nothing like 80 year old equioment.

We had over 800?! Wow. That's more then what I thought we had. We really need to find another coach somehow(even if the town buys it). They should repaint the ones they have now into PRR scheme. But I'm just day dreaming again.

How come your Company is never hiring?  I moved to Dover 2 1/2 years ago from The Lehigh Valley and your website STILL says you are not hiring.
Do you have any positions open for someone willing to work L O N G hours in A L L weather with little experience?
 
Come on!  You gotta be hiring for something?
Posted by: LDS Railfan Posted on: Dec 18th, 2008, 3:41pm
Whoa, enzio, keep your tender on.  
 
It's just that whenever they do have an opening, they fill it up quick. Trust me, my brother tried to get a job here when they were advertizing in the Guide(?), or something simular, and he called them about three or four days later and they already hired. He has his application in, so unless you put yours in now, I bet you have to wait a long line.  
 
This is just my $0.02, though. Jason, Brian, sorry if I got anything wrong, that's just what I can recall.

Norfolk Southern seems to hire in the local papers every once and awhile. Normally track gangs from what I remember...

To answer the question about hiring we get flooded with applications and and we call back everybody to set up an interview. Some show up others don't. You just have to check in the local papers because we have not updated the website in almost a year. If we start hiring again i'll post a notice here.

If you will notice, the web page hasn't been updated since the beginning of this year, and that was just to clean up some old news. Prior to my employment, the webpage had been updated only twice that I know of since 2006. What I am trying to tell you is that this is not the place to find current info. I can also tell you is that the RR will be losing several employees in the next five months. There are only about 15 of us to begin with.  
 
My advice to you would be to either call and speak to the general manager expressing interest in employment or drive over to Federalsburg and fill out an application. The contact info on the web page is correct.
 
In other news, it was a long day on the Federalsburg line. We ran the length of the line to Cambridge and back to Seaford today. We bumped lots of cars around.

Is 1203 still running? I'm planning to head on down there soon if the weathers decent for once.
Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Dec 24th, 2008, 10:47am
Yes, #1203 is alive and well. I worked on it recently as I am usually up north in Massey. All three RS3m are alive and well. #1202 is prepped for winter though.

Would it be best to apply directly from your website, mail, fax, email it in or apply directly at Federalsburg in person should I want to 'wait'?

Monday was a good "play" day on the Delmarva.  Massey had 1202 stored for winter and 1201 on the train; didn't find the Federalsburg crew but 2628 was in the enginehouse.  And Selbyville crew was returning light from Frankford when I got there with 2630.
 
Did not find 2632 or 801 at Selbyville.  Nothing was parked in the siding south of the crossing, where often I have found 2632.  I assume one was in the shed and the other? maybe at Snow Hill? for unloading?.

Hey Toby, is that shot taken at the Club in Delmar? It almost looks like 2628 pulling into Seaford, just missing Invista.

Jason, was there an extra on Saturday? I heard rumblings that there was going to be for Williamsburg.
Posted by: MDDE608 Posted on: Jan 25th, 2009, 11:33pm
No Saturday Train got canceled. Tri-Gas would not have the cars empty in time for a Saturday switch.  
 
Got to see something you don't normally see on the Eastern Shore. An old Pennsylvania GP 9 stuck in between a Dash 9 40CW and a SD70M-2 that the H42 crew was working with on Friday afternoon.
 
Went past Harrington yard today and saw alot of MOW equipment on a siding. Anyone know where they are working, or going to be working?
Posted by: LDS Railfan Posted on: Jan 26th, 2009, 10:16am
All I know about the Geep9 is that the DCL had stored it on their track for a private owner. Not exactly sure who the owner is, though.

Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Feb 15th, 2009, 7:51pm
Chris, not that I am aware of. They were moved to Massey a while back. We were using them occasionally as spacers since last winter. During the fall, the end of the line in Worton was being used for storage much like the main in Price.  
 
Hopefully, we'll put most of them back in storage soon and free up the track around the engine house, especially if we have to weigh a bunch of cars. Right now, we can only weigh one at a time.

There are, and we have. If you look around you will find the Delaware Coast Line(Coastline) Railroad topic. I do have some pictures that I have taken in March and maybe April from the DLCR and I need to upload them, if I haven't already, that is. Thanks for the reminder.

Well, I'll give you a couple reasons. One, there are some insiders from the MDDE on here giving the heads up to our fans. I am one of them.
 
Two, the motive power used by our railroad is interesting to some of the diehards of the world. We are still running RS3ms and CF7s, as well as the switcher in ex-CR paint. The history of the MDDE's motive power makes for an interesting topic.
 
Lastly, the DCL and the ESRR aren't nearly as active on Delmarva. The only thing running otherwise is NS, and their trains all look the same to me. Dash 9, Gevos, and whatever else on the point is boring in my opinion. Once in a while you get lucky and get a GP or an SD, sometimes even in CR blue, but the other newer stuff is more likely.

Hey, Brain. I'll trade you Delmar's local power (GP38-2's and SD40-2's) for your Widecabs. Delmar needs some of them once in a while.

The MDDE T6s are all gone, sadly. The Delaware Coast Line runs an EX-MDDE unit, #19. Picture
I believe some also ended up at the Arkansas and Missouri.

Its stored and operated out of Georgetown, Delaware. The last time I was there (Nearly a year ago mind you), it was the main locomotive on the Lewes line. They runs as needed. They also use the caboose as the idler car, which is kinda neat to see in this day and age.

I just realized something, not that we don't want to answer you questions, it's just that this should be discussed in the "Delaware Coast Line Railroad" topic. Please move it there and I will be more then overjoyed to answer your questions. Thanks.

I know this goes back a week or so, but on June 27, I photographed a southbound NS unit grain train (so it appeared) passing through Bridgeville, DE. Is this something that goes to MDDE? What would the NS symbol be?

Which direction was it headed? North or South? It might have been headed to the NS/MDDE interchange in either Seaford, Townsend, or Frankford. But at the same time, they were probably headed to the Delmar yard.
Posted by: Century430 Posted on: Jul 6th, 2009, 10:02pm
It was heading south. I shot it coming past what I assume to be a block limit sign called NYLON.

OK, it was probably heading down to the Seaford yard. Some cars might have been going to the NS/MDDE interchange and the others were going to Delmar.  
 
And this is just a guess, but NYLON might be a company the railroad delivers/exports from. Again, though, this is just a guess.

The train might have been heading for the Allen's Feed Mill just north of Seaford. They have a long lop track that holds at least 100 cars for unloading.

Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Sep 1st, 2009, 7:44pm
Jason can say for sure better then I can, but 2630 isn't quite ready to go back in service. Its back on its trucks and parked inside in Selbyville, but #801 is still working the southern line.

2630 still needs some mechanical work, and a few odds and ends before it goes back in service.
 
There is a possibilty that 801 could move back to Massey for the upcoming grain season instead of going back in to Storage in Bishop.
Posted by: Railfan Entertainments Posted on: Sep 1st, 2009, 9:13pm
So how will it take until it's back in service? Two weeks at most?  
 
Sorry about the obvious questions, but I just want to try getting this topic more active. I wish I could railfan it more.

They are building a new substationjust north of Massey. They are also rebuilding an old one just south of Millington. I would guess it is for the Massey site, it is about a mile north of the tracks.

There was still some action in Massey today. They were working on a new grade crossing in Massey and just east on the Ctown line a contractor was picking up old ties.
 
I see some new rail and ties have been placed at the side of the tracks in Price.

A lot of the crossings are receiving some work. If you go west towards Worton, there is heavy rail at almost every grade crossing.
 
One train Monday, Massey to Centreville.
 
Not MDDE related directly, but thought I'd share this link regarding the Bay Coast car float. Some of our outbound loads are supposed to go this route:

Last time I was at the MDDE, Selbyville had 2630, 2632; Federalsburg had 1203, 2628; and Massey had 801, 1201, 1202.  The seemingly never photographed 802 is out on lease.

It all depends if crews can make it to there stations. If so all trains will be plowing the snow and cleaning switches. I have well over a foot and a half of snow in Hurlock and have drifts 4-5 ft high in my yard. I have heard of 2ft + in northern Delaware and Maryland.
 
I have a pic of MDDE 802. Probably the only one in existence.

They should have MUed all the engines they could a opened up the throttle. Then again, if the engines jump, you'll have a bigger problem. Scratch out my idea.

I've always wondered and just thought about asking on here; what are the prime movers in the engines?

Maybe not such a good idea to to have sold us that MDDE Jordan Spreader!

Nice pictures . I am looking for the following pictures :  
 
of  Ex-LI RR No. 221,V & M -Virginia and Maryland Railroad- ALCO C420 No. 202, 
Ex- MDDE No.202 ALCO C420 in full dress. That's the paint scheme,in case you missed it.  
I have a picture of this loco in N.Y.S. &W. RR yellow and black as it arrived on the BUFFALO SOUTHERN RR property.
 This loco ended up on the BUFFALO SOUTHERN RAILROAD as No. 2010 and it's painted green, I think it's in storage.
Posted by: Railfan Entertainments Posted on: Feb 24th, 2010, 9:19am
Very interesting. I never knew MDDE had a C420. I will keep my eyes on the lookout. Do you have any other information on it? Thanks.

Sorry about the double post, but I just found this old picture of one of the RS3m's. It says in was taken in F-burg by Peirce Behrendt. I'm not exactly sure which engine it is, though...

Looks like it's maroon. I saw the picture of 2010 on their website yesterday, but that was the only picture I could find of it.
Posted by: PVRX1 Posted on: Feb 28th, 2010, 11:03am
The Virginia & Maryland had the high hood C420s.  As far as I know none of them were ever lettered for the Maryland & Delaware.
 
The comapny that owned both lines had two low nose exLehigh & Hudson River C420s wearing MDDE 52 and 54 paint with no lettering = now Arkansas & Missouri 52 & 54.  I have photos of them stored and fully painted at Federalsburg, but they were not lettered.  There were also two RS32s on hand numbered 40 and 42.
 
MDDE power was the four RS-1s joined by the stable of T-6s.
 
When the VAMD 202 went to the NYSW it was painted in the VAMD maroon scheme.  It wore numbers 202, 2002, 2010 while on the Susquehanna.  Eventually it was repainted yellow and black, and later sold to George Hockaday and leased to the BSOR it wore number 2010.

While we are delving into history, here's a quick roster.  I can post more detailed info as found in my 2009 book called Northeast Railroads Volume II: Regionals and Short Lines:
 
Original DMV Corp. / MDDE / VAMD:  includes sold and parts units
 
MDDE:
T6:  12, 14:1, 14:2, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 100
RS1:  20, 21, 22, 23, 25
RS32:  40, 42
C420:  50, 52, 54   (all low nose)
 
VAMD:
S4:  10
C420: 201, 202, 203, 204 (all high nose)
 
There is also a photo in an ALCO book showing an RS1 numbered 1, in Rutland's green/yellow paint scheme, switching the Little Creek float brige.  My guess it may have been #20, as she was a former Rutland unit and was #1 for a previous owner.
 
Modern Day MDDE:
 
SW900: 801
SW8:  802
RS3m:  1201, 1202, 1203
CF7:  2628, 2630, 2632

Late notice, but the old PRR (Ex-Chesapeake RR) bridge over Route 404 near Queen Anne will be demolished this evening for the 404 widening project.
 
In other news, all 3 trains ran today. The plan for the Massey line from when I last worked was to run to Centreville today to work Carville. If everything was taken down that was online, there might even be some cars parked at the Tidewater runaround track.  
 
Cut Jason some slack for the lack of his usual updates. Jason's been working very hard on the RR these past several weeks with all of the snow and subsequent events on the RR (let's just say Cranemasters has been busy with us; the MDDE was even on the WBOC news a couple of Fridays ago).

I just got back from the 404 Bridge, and the SHA workers said they were knocking it down between Wednesday and Friday nights, so tomorrow I'll be going by to get pictures. Thanks for the tip! But its possible they didn't want me to stick around, haha.

Well there thinking wide gauge from all the quick melt down of the snow. Not really sure thou. That was my first(and hopfully LAST) derailment as an Engineer. Cranemasters has been busy also on both the Federalsburg and Chestertown Lines. In Federalsburg Loco 1203 came off of it's back trucks at a RR Xing the was packed with 6-8 inches of ice. On the Chestertown line Cranemasters was called for a HI Rail Excavator to digout the valleys that were covered with 12+ Ft drifts.  
 
Lets just hope March is a better month for the MDDE.

This is probably hidden deep within the last 47 pages, but where was 20 moved to after it left the MDDE?
Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Mar 8th, 2010, 8:31pm
#20 ( I believe) went to a start up railroad in the 1980s named the Arkansas and Missouri. It may still be rostered by them as they are known for having a fleet of ALCOs.
Posted by: Railfan Entertainments Posted on: Mar 9th, 2010, 8:48am
I thought so. Because the other day I saw a picture of a particular number 20 on the A&M. And I couldn't find any hard evidence that was the same one MDDE had. Okay, cool. Thanks.
 
BTW, here's that one picture I saw.

Pretty sure it was the old ballast regulator that sits behind the ballast hopper, and not one of the RS3m's or the SW900. Jason, can you confirm?

Turns out that the regulator in question belonged to a contracotr who was disposing of it, and not the MDDE's. The salvage company jumped the gun and began to torch it but it wasn't prepped for torching (ie removal of flammable fluids), resulting in the fire. I think it was the hydraulic fluid that really got that thing going.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: May 11th, 2010, 10:40pm
I got a picture of it today I will post later, It did not look like scrap material before but it does now. Atleast the MDDE one has a nice tree growing out of the top.

Federalsburg train ran Monday, Massey train is running today. Don't know who is running yet tomorrow, but Massey is probably a sure bet.
 
Stone trains ought to start here soon too down south. Jason can confirm this.
 
In other news, 1202 is off hiatus and now working up north as the primary engine. #1201 is stored inside and #801 is stored in service in Worton. There have been occasions where the Massey crew deadheads to Worton to just switch the chemical plant with #801.

I've been scouring the internet for days looking up info on the MDDE RR, trying to find out when and where trains are going to be running so I can get some good pictures! Thank god for this site, and more specifically this thead! I wish I could just go hangout and talk with the crew, but most of the time I've only got a tiny window of time to set up and get the pics before I have to get to work.

There is an additional train this year and it leaves at 9:30AM sharp. Get your tickets early because they sell out quick!

I got pictures of the event and some night shots on Friday night of the N&W coaches. I'm still no Master O. Winston Link, though.... lol

Hi Jason,
I want to let you know I really appreciate your postings of the movements.
Because of this, I was able to get some great shots last year in February
of the Massey train.
I will be in your area from 5/9-5/13 to try and photograph all the lines and I am sure these posting will come in handy then!
Thanks!

How'd the MD&DE fair Irene? From what I've seen online it seems like there has been a large amount of flooding almost everywhere it goes.
 
Found a photo taken somewhere in Millington, MD. Photo by Carl Hardin posted on WBOC's facebook page.
 
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Aug 28th, 2011, 10:17pm
This picture was taken just south of town, the Chester River bridge is south of the wash out.
On this line there is also a  minor washout south of Sudlersville, and I believe one North of Millington from the last rain storm.

Both Fed and Selby lines are clear of debri, no washouts.
 
Loco 801 is O/O/S til further notice due to hitting a tractor-trailer at Rt 313 Barclay 2 weeks ago.
 
Loco 1203 is O/O/S due to and broken lead spring. Loco 2628 is handling the duties for the Fed Line.
 
Loco 1202 is O/O/S due to blown air compressor. Loco 1201 is handling duties for the Massey Line.
 
Centreville Line is O/O/S due to 2 large washouts 1 north of Millington and 1 south of Millington.
 
Trains have been on call in the mornings due to lack of freight. Any train can run at anytime until freight picks back up.
Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Sep 5th, 2011, 9:15am
In lighter news, Hurlock Days will be 10/1/11. 2628 will be on the point!
Posted by: rockgp40 Posted on: Oct 15th, 2011, 5:48pm
2 trains on 10/17: Massey & Federalsburg
 
Centreville line is almost back in service. Look for a large cut of covered hoppers to move south into Perdue Roberts in the coming days.
 
#801 is also just about back in service.
 
1202 and 1203 are both still out of service.
Posted by: KENTANDQUEENANNERR Posted on: Oct 16th, 2011, 2:07pm
Great I guess that means the wash out repairs are complete!

I'm posting these img links from my facebook page. Tell me if anyone has any trouble seeing them. It's been so long since I've done this so let me see I still remember how to post this way...
 
Power for the day was 2628

These are the only decent ones I got. I didn't take too many because I was working train.
 
And if anyone is interested, here's me tricked out in full uniform.

Hey Jason or RockGP40, could you start posting when they are running again? I've been getting off work around 8:30am, so I'm thinking of heading to Federalsburg tomorrow or anytime next week.

One train Monday, Federalsburg.
 
In other news, 2630 is down for the time being with maintenance woes but will be repaired. 2628 has been or will be sent to work the southern line in its place.
 
With that being said, #1203 gets the call for Hurlock Days on 10/6/12. Be there or be square. I will be the conductor on the locomotive. Six trips are planned.

Awesome! I'll definitely be there on Hurlock Days, not sure if I will have time to catch it tomorrow morning though.....

NO Trains

Only one train today, Massey with #1202.
 
In other news, Hurlock Days is fast approaching. It will be held on 10/5. Not sure what the power will be that day. My guess would be on CF7 #2630, but it could be #801 too. #1203 is still down for repairs.

1201 and 1202 are in Massey, both are in service.
1203 and 801 are in Federalsburg, both are in service.
2628 is in Selbyville, DE, in service.
 
802 was sold about two years ago to BRW.
 
2630 remains in disrepair post the Sept. 2013 derailment.
2632 remains O/O/S with a host of issues.
Neither will likely go back in service.
 
No new news regarding an excursion train on the Snow Hill line.
 
Otherwise, normal operations. Grain season has gone well thus far up north and the propane season is well underway.
 
One train today, 12/30. Federalsburg
Posted by: Century430 Posted on: Mar 26th, 2015, 3:21pm
Might be in the area next week. What might operations be looking like?
 
Thanks!

One train tomorrow, 8/26: Massey
 
Here is a shot from yesterday's Massey train. RS3m #1202 has runaround two cars in Sudlersville. It has spotted the one and is now coupling up to continue south to Centreville, MD. Of note is the PRR heritage depot in the background.
