Thanx! NS has replaced alot of the older signals with the new "vader" style signal in NY, but there are a few places (including Hornell) where  the older signals are still in place. CSX has also been replacing the older NYC signals in NY, as well. The signal bridge in Hamburg will sadly be gone in a year or two, I think.

Here are two photographs of Athearn products taken on the exhibit floor of the National Train Show in Orlando on August 5th . . . . one is an artist's drawing of their planned 9-1-1 unit and the other showing several new models; note the SD 60 on the top row.

Sorry about the photo quality, as they were taken using my cell phone in the Athearn booth.

Some nice looking prototypes!

Athearn has announced they will release both the Vet and GoRail SD60E's at a later date.
The idea is spreading out the 3 special ones so modelers didn't have to choose which one to get
They are also releasing 3 regular SD60E's

I like that signal bridge!
If anyone is in eastern PA, I would grab shots of the NYC style, Reading vintage signals on the Reading line soon.
New signals are up and there's been renewed activity this past week with contractors working on them.
The old ABS system is on borrowed time for sure.

General Discussion / NS train symbol 740
« Last post by Trainmaster8774 on August 13, 2017, 03:03:21 PM »
Does any body know the destination for NS 740. The only site I seen for its destination was from 2007
And it said it goes from Memphis, TN to somewhere in Alabama. But a heritage units spotting said NS 8098 was on NS 740 out of Conway, PA not Memphis, TN. So does any body have an idea where it's destination is?

I was out in western NY 3 weeks ago this evening. CSX and NS run side by side from Hamburg to Dunkirk. I chose the Bayview Road crossing, which is one of my favorite location to railfan in greater Buffalo.

NS 316 heading east on the former NKP mainline:



NS 316 had welded rail flats in the consist:



CSX intermodal heading east, with a classic NYC signal bridge overhead:



For the rest of the action at Bayview Road, please visit this slide show:
