"Pemberville Sub?" That's new! This would lead me to believe that the C&O south of Fostoria is going elsewhere (I've heard rumblings about a site in Huntington). Just think, a southbound leaving Walbridge for Cincinnati will now traverse portions of FIVE subdivisions (Toledo Terminal, Pemberville, Fostoria, Willard & Garrett) before hitting the Toledo Sub @ Deshler. I'm not sure if this means more bulletins for the crew to get at the beginning of their run or not, but it seems a little redundant to me.

I'm not sure how the Toledo Terminal fits in Chicago compared to other potential locations. but it'll be interesting to see how "well" communications occurs between the various offices when a train is handed off from one to the next.

Finally, I would suspect that the Toledo Sub (B&O side) will be moving out as well, probably to Louisville or Indy - does anyone have confirmation?

It would be interesting to hear how the changes go on Sunday, but I'll be heading back from New Jersey - so I'll miss all the fun of the first day!

Thanks in advance!
