I live along the Muncie to Frankfort (Indiana) mainline, and we get major work done on this line every 2-3 years.  So here is some MOW action from both June 2009 and November 2011. The first image is of the crew headed in for the evening . . . the broad smile and huge wave is likely due to the operator knowing that another long day is about over.  The tie-inserter photo shows the power of NS's equipment, handling a new tie like it was a toothpick.  It is pretty impressive, watching (close up) the skilled crew of the tie-and-surface gangs, with their modern equipment.
Virtual Railroading / Links for Territories?

I'd really like to try the TD3 territories that were updated as mentioned in the various posts, but saw no links to download them.  If anyone has them, please reply?

It is June 18, 1992 and a track inspector and his antique track car are in the siding at Rarden, Ohio to meet train 429 on its journey from Portsmouth, Ohio to Cincinnati on the former N&W "Peavine".  This line has been out of service since 2002.

General Discussion / NS 174
« Last post by irgoodpilot on April 23, 2017, 11:22:03 PM »
I show that NS 174 normally goes north from Macon, GA to Elkhart, IN via the CNO&TP.  However, this Saturday and Sunday it has come to Knoxville on the West End District and been routed north to Harriman on the K&O.  Does anyone know why this detour has occurred?  It's very unusual to see anything but northbound grain trains from Loudon get routed north via Coster.

My family lives over 2 hours from me... so Easter weekend is a great reason for a road trip. Of course... y'all know I'm gonna spend some time trackside, too.

Day #1 aka Easter Eve was spent following the Southern Tier mainline from Linden to Elmira. I caught 4 traisn along the way.

NS 287 passing the former Erie RR/EL depot in Sliver Springs, which NS now uses for MOW:

NS 287 passes the siding where NS interchanges with Rochester & Southern RR in Silver Springs:

Due to a derailment on the Pittsburgh Line, NS detoured a couple of trains via the Southern Tier Mainline. I itnercepted the 21Z at Cp Cass in Hornell:

I looked at these and those of the 611 on your Flickr account.  You make very nice pictures; good lighting, etc.
