David S about More on the John Mcloughlin

82 feet high? I don't think that will fit under the trolley wire! But seriously, kudos to all of you who work on this and the other cars.

Adding 1309 to the mix gives us more flexibility in building consists and allows us to reduce wear on our service cars. 1309 also has 6 axles and a [...]

After last weeks severe weather that occured not too far from the IRM's campus I began to wonder about how, and if the museum's collection is covered [...]

Couldn't you just add another car for extra brakes? Also then shouldn't the RPO car always be out for a more authentic train?


Brian L. about The Old Bag and the Silver Beaver

From the operations side, 1309 would be a welcome addition for appearances behind 1630 and give us more weight and therefore more brakes. When 1630 is [...]

Hello Russ The acquisition, in my view, is important in a number of aspects. First, we want to demonstrate and educate the public on RR use of a [...]

Hello Roger, and thanks for your reply last week. I am curious about the desire to bring 1309 to the museum. I understand the idea that it is [...]

I meant to say the CNW 8609 instead of the 8784, but yeah that's an RPO/Bag.

To be purely technical, the N&W baggage (converted Pullman) used by the used bookstore and C&NW 8728 are heavyweights, however, they are used by other [...]

Mon, 04-13-2015 21:43
I see. I wasn't sure if the CNW 8784 or the Havelock car were considered heavyweight baggage cars. I've always liked the look of the 8784. Too bad [...]

We have a few cars that would be considered cafe/lounge cars, ATSF lounge dorm, IC Grill-Lounge, and the Dover Strait lounge-buffet-sleeper. We do not [...]
