Re: [FJGRailroad] From the Archives
- Im trying to find railroad pictures on the net for the Poughkeepsie
area.I believe there is a line called the Hospital Industrial and also
an old railroad bridge that crosses the Hudson River. Anyone got
pictures or know where to look? Thanks Mark
- Joe; I found a unit #3715-3745 listed as a CN class MR-18d MLW, RS-18 built in 1958. Railroad Magazine put out a book called Diesel Locomotive Rosters many years ago from the pages of their magazine stories. No publication date was found in the book but was printed by Wayner Publications in NYC. CP had no 3700 # Diesels. Hope this helps.

I have been moving a lot of stuff around in the archives and came across possibly the first instance of recording my early railfan adventures.
This was a long time ago but if someone has a CP or CN loco roster, maybe you can tell me what I was looking at.....in fact I don't remember if it was a CN or CP unit, although I think the latter
August 24, 1976
Unit number 3740 MR-18d Pt. Claire Ontario. 1st spur south of the grade crossing across from the Holiday Inn.
This was a dead end spur and the crew performed a flying switch to get a boxcar spotted.
I also spotted a MR 18c number 3693.
So here is my question. What was I looking at and where was this branch and does it still exist ?
