Well, if they are going to run it, they will have to build a wye, or turntable, or return loop, as they have no way to turn it. Unless they are cool with backing 9 miles in one direction.
Pretty sure Colebrookdale has a runaround track for their GP-9, why would that not work for the 5030?

Re: GLC GP38 incident

I'm amazed that 397 is being rebuilt. Seems like when a frame is bent that its usually the death knell of a locomotive.

Re: Hamilton/Allegan Abandoned ROW Q&A

I also see zero trace of the Interurban ROW that was abandoned in the 20’s. Has anyone ever been able to detect the interurban grade anywhere between Martin and Allegan? Take a look here, I believe this is the grade. Monteith Jct would be in the field if they had left the tracks intact. https://www...

Re: Hamilton/Allegan Abandoned ROW Q&A

Does anyone have any photos or track layout when the Chessie served the customer just south of the Hamilton Co-op? It appears their building is still there just south of a storage lot and the current end of Track. I also have not seen a single milepost on the Hamilton Branch, so I have no clue as t...

I also have not seen a single milepost on the Hamilton Branch, so I have no clue as to where the railroad starts on paper and where it ends.
MP17 is in the middle of the Hamilton branch, located at Fillmore Rd:

Hamilton/Allegan Abandoned ROW Q&A

Yesterday’s adventure of exploring downtown Allegan made me trace the former PM into town, abandoned in 1979. I also got lucky and caught 702 working the Co-op as well but it left me with some questions. First one is in Hamilton just north of the trestle over the Rabbit River. There appears to be an...

Plymouth Sub happenings

So along with the ongoing track removal projects at Wyoming Yard, I saw the other day that it appears track gangs are outright removing the old siding at Sunfield, which outside of storage hasn’t been used in sometime as an actual siding. When I was in Grand Ledge in the last month I also noticed so...

Re: SS Badger Sold

Re the Spartan, "The company, he said, intends to explore opportunities for it." That could mean anything from putting it back into service to cutting it down to a barge. In the warmer months the traffic gets backed up pretty good in Ludington waiting for the Badger. If Interlake wanted to jump on ...
