- Nov 15, 2006The track materials are in gondolas in Fonda Yard. The relay rail is coming
from Amtrak's plant in Delaware on the 30th. The plan is to run the train up
the Harrisburgh Buffalo main so it will be facing the right direction when
it gets to Fonda. Hulcher will be on hand to pull the rail off the train at
Fonda. Adirondack Power and Light will provide the power for the overhead
catenary system which will be installed after the track has been relaid. An
NJT E-60 will be the sole power until negotiations can be completed with
NdeM to get the operable PA out of the museum in Nogales.
The original FJ&G 44 tonner has been purchased from the Associated Feed
Mills in Iowa and is already moving east on CSX. The 44 tonner will be used
for switching moves and will also have an electrical cabinet installed so
that it may be used on the main. I(n addition the Mohawk Hudson chapter has
agreed to lease the last T motor to the railroad. This unit will also be
converted to AC propulsion.
The operator is a startup company known as The Fonda and Fultonville
Electric Railway and will maintain thier world headquarters in Fonda in the
brick commercial building next to the Canajoharie National Bank Branch.
And if you believe any of this I have a bridge in Brooklyn you may find of
