    If you ever plan on visiting, and wanna learn more, you gotta check out my thread: Moffat Route Tour. Not to toot my own horn, but in my visits, I have grown to love the area more and more. And with that, I love to share my experiences, and my shots!

    Ah, Jerry- great to have you back! I was worried when you left the OC. But it sounds like you've landed on both feet.

    These small branchlines are becoming a story in themselves, as the Class Ones abandon large stretches of track. Maybe they'll help rekindle some of that old affection we used to feel for the Santa Fe, B&O, WM, Pennsy, etc.

    BTW-
    And WHAT was wrong with the MA & PA? It's one of my favorite railroads! At least the original MA & PA. [​IMG] There still stands a set of MA & PA bridge abutments near where I work- where the old MA & PA went through Towson, MD! I need to get a photo of them.

    No relation intended with the real MA&PA!!
    I should have said the OC was more of an operating museum, rather then a freight railroad. It had 'some' nice equipment, but it struggled in the freight, and safety department, mostly due to very poor management. It is a shame, as there are some good railroaders still there.
    And you are right.....
    With Class 1's continuing to abandon lines, the larger shortline freight haulers like OmniTRAX and Rail America will continue to grow their systems with some really great railroads.

    I like that view of the lake from you house! To me, that's a great place to just sit down, cup of coffee at your side, in the early morning hours when the sun is juuuuuust coming up, and listen to the sounds of nature.

    I've lived in the country here in Texas, where my noisiest neighbors were a pack of coyotes. Still beats in-town living any day.

    Dave, where in Towson is that? I was there last week (Trader Joes, cuz they don't have any here :D ) and I'll probably be there again in the next month or two.

    Jerry, Welcome to Alabama.
    I think you will love it here. Lot of beautiful country to see. I live right down the road from you in Anniston. Looking forward to more of your classes.
