      The rails are all still there, but they're in bad shape.  I believe there are numerous full washouts and many, many locations where the roadbed has been scoured away on one side by the rushing currents.

      Somewhere I saw some type of inspection or other document prepared on this line... but I have no clue where it is right now.  I read it in a PDF format.  I think some type of county or state agency did it.

      They've got to run from Syracuse all the way to Utica, right?  Have the ripped the main out

      between Bingo and Norwich?

      The Utica shops are now owned by R.D.I. (Ron Delavan Inc.).He does locomotive repairs. We lease a small area from him. We still serve the Utica area and to Sangerfield and sometimes south to Sherburne.I havent been up there in years. Mark

      Do you still service the Utica area?  Someone told me NYSW sold their Utica Shops.

      I dont think all hell is breaking loose. I think we are holding our ground pretty good.Suit-Kote in Cortland keeps everyone busy.Possibility we may take over the Campbell Hall work from the NS,along with the Hudson Secondary from CP-HJ to Warwick.If we are all working at 50hrs per week,Id say the work and the money must be there. And with the pictures with the trains are just sitting may have a reason. Some of these trains cant head north until the southbound arrives in Binghamton,due to having single track from Binghamton to Syracuse. Some of these northbounds are no rush to run. Company doesnt want a crew to go north,interchange than have a crew sit and wait for hours on the inbound drop by the CSX. They'd rather time it right to have the crew get up there,interchange the outbounds,have the inbounds already there,then switch the southbound train,then start heading south,until relieved.

      What is going on at DO now? Once upoon a time they were an aggressive transportation company. Although I do not subscribe to the NYSW list, I do not hear much about them anymore. Are they still in the bulk delivery business? Do they operate into Staten Island? mIs there any stack business left for them?

      Hi guys,

      Mark Wilbur, former FJ&G/DO Conductor, now NYS&W passed some photos along to me. They're of former DO-Line, CACV #2 being placed on a flatbed for removal from the DO Corp. Property. It was sold to someone in Maryland. I've posted them to my webpage, here is the link: http://www.fjgrr. org/ginospage/ CACV_DOS2/ DOCCACV2. html

      The photos were taken by NYS&W Dispatcher Tom Ross.
