carefree highway, take me to the tracks

jwrinn@kalmbach.com @TrainsMagazine @trains_magazine Oren Helbok’s story about U.S. 220, Eastern America’s vaunted railfan road, evokes multiple thoughts and feelings for me. I first was told of 220’s charms as a young railroad enthusiast more than 30 years ago. Over the years, as my curiosity caused me to travel, I learned just how apt the informal designation was. I am happy that it still is so: All of the major sites and sights along the way were enough to convince me that it truly is a gateway to great main lines, museums, and much more. Of course, U.S. 220 is but one of many roads that we who love trains particularly like to travel. There’s U.S. 30 along Union Pacific’s busy main line across Nebraska, including a wonderful stretch of triple track between Gibbon and…

KEVIN CORBETT, president and CEO of NJ Transit since February 2018, oversees the secondlargest commuter rail agency in the nation — one that has faced significant challenges in funding and manpower shortages. In conversations in January and July, Corbett discussed his agency, which offers commuter rail, light rail, and bus service. Its 12 rail lines serve over 300,000 passengers daily, second only to the Long Island Rail Road. The interviews have been edited for length and clarity. Q What makes NJ Transit different from the Long Island Rail Road, Metra, Metrolink, and other commuter railroads? If you were trying to sell NJT to a client, what would you say? A One of the things about our job is it is an amazing entity on the rail side, the largest statewide one in the…

stb plays referee in chicago

THE SURFACE TRANSPORTATION BOARD HAS BEEN ASKED to settle a pair of disputes in Chicago — one between Amtrak and commuter railroad Metra at Chicago Union Station, and one between the two Canadian-based Class I railroads over interchange procedures. The dispute over the rent Metra pays to Amtrak, owner of Chicago Union Station, has already gone to the STB once. In 2018, Metra asked the board to get involved. But the STB returned the matter to Amtrak and Metra then, saying board involvement would be premature. This time, it is Amtrak asking for an STB ruling, saying in late July that the two sides have reached an impasse. Amtrak is asking to increase rent from $9.66 million in 2018, while Metra reportedly wants to reduce the rent to $7 million per…

durango & silverton sued over 2018 wildfire

Federal prosecutors filed a lawsuit against the DURANGO & SILVERTON NARROW GAUGE RAILROAD, saying one of its trains started a fire that began June 1, 2018, and burned more than 53,000 acres. The suit seeks about $25 million toward reimbursement of the costs of fighting the “416 Fire.” The fire, which closed the railroad for more than a month, led to D&S plans to introduce diesel locomotives in periods of high fire risk and convert at least one locomotive to burn oil. An attorney for the railroad declined comment, citing the pending litigation. BOMBARDIER will lay off 550 workers — half the workforce — from its Thunder Bay, Ontario, plant in November, citing a drop in orders and the effects of “Buy America” provisions on car orders in the United States.…
