Trip Reports and Photo Sharing / Re: Hanging out in Dead Ox Holler

Butch, likewise it was great to finally put a face with a name.  Wish the sunlight had been a little better.    I do like the Dead Ox Hollow area, having been back there many times.   I did manage to gbag a shot of 22A northbound, leaning into the curve just above KD Tower.   Unfortunately, the nice long grain train that followed showed just as the light went to crap!   Just my luck...LOL!

The Nags Head Lounge / My website relocated
« Last post by Bill Richardson on October 11, 2017, 11:17:41 PM »
I had to relocate my websites with a different host.  Tonight, I posted an update in another section, Trip Reports, to a string started by Matt.  He had asked the name of my RR website back in August.  Since then, it has been turned off, because of a change in the "relay station" for want of a proper name for it.  I had a sub-domain, and now have a new one with a different host.      The carrier for certain sub-domains stopped carrying them.  No, I don't understand it, but had to change.  Besides, my allotted space was about used up.  Anyway, here is the link for the new home page:

Matt---Back in August you asked the name of my website.  I gave it, and the name of my outdoor website.  Recently, I had to change the host.  I have a new host, and have uploaded my outdoor website, with a different name--Woods Cliffs and Waterfalls.  I have yet to upload my RR website.  It will have a different name, probably Railroad Engines.  I changed the headers on the pages to "Railroad Engines and Related Subjects."  I figured on using that as the website name, but had trouble when trying to add on a 2nd website.  Staff suggested RailroadEngines.  I guess they want something like that, instead of a name with more words, in order to make it work.  Anyway, the old websites are deactivated, gone, can't be found.  The names will still show up, but clicking will bring up a 404 error--not found.  I'll get the replacement up soon.

A few months later, I had an interesting visit with NS before spending Thanksgiving at a family dinner. it was the beginning of fr=oreign power becoming more common on the Southern Tier mainline. At this time, NS 309 still originated at Gang Mills, an interesting set of power was assembling a train to take westward:



meanwhile, a second set of power (possibly NS extra I09) was building another train to take west and relieve the congestion at Gang Mills:



NS 12T crossing the Chemung River in Elmira during the early afternoon:



A complete look at my Thanksgiving adventure with NS is in this photo album:

Disscusion / Re: River Point Station

The trucks are out. All I can say is River point Station created some really nice trucks with this run. The crane attached to a MOW truck really makes it stand out. Looks like they have learned to make a big order so these hopefully will not sell out anytime soon.
