    Run 8, Down South.

    Here's a little railroading on our Waycross route I thought I'd share. Its based loosely on a few real life experiences.

    So the Fitzgerald sub is big time single main railroading. Even at just...

    Just wanted to clear up a little misinformation but the next HRS release will be the Fitzgerald Sub from Bolen to Manchester Ga, not the Thomasville Sub. There will be more info to come on that...

    Hard to say on the recharge without seeing it but there are a multitude of features and systems programmed into Run 8's brake system that probably most aren't aware of or ever noticed. One of them...

    Yes, just dont auto EOT when you set up the train. The caboose brake pipe gauge works regardless of the EOT status.

    There are basically two forms of water used on the route, open and stagnant. Open is found more in large open areas and contains static waves, stagnant is used more for more of creeks, ponds, etc,...

    The J&SW has been around for a long long time. It operated as its own railroad up until the ACL took over it which eventually became CSX. So in short the J&SW operations have been CSX and its...

    The JSW is CSX trackage and is worked by CSX. Its just known as the J&SW from its predecessor way back when. I do know it is worked by various yard jobs but I'm not sure about their schedules or...
  8. Oh yes they did. For the most part I remember...

    Oh yes they did. For the most part I remember them more on a tonnage basis rather than cars. The Bostwick trains usually averaged between 11-12k. As best I can remember, once in a while we would get...

    I did a little digging and found your Stanton Symbols circa early 2000s. These actually span from 2000 to 2004. These were running N symbol both loaded and empty.

    Stanton Trains
    N176 (Taft,...

    Hmmm, I honestly cant remember the difference between the T and N symbols. Bostwick is actually a rotary facility. Back then they used a combination of SEMX and COAX cars. Stanton is a bottom dump...

    Yeah those Stanton trains were N trains back then as best I remember. You might have to fudge a few symbols that are used by current Stanton trains. I'll look and see what else I can find.

    Well we did have E series coal trains back then but from what I remember E series trains did not have a mine to return to upon departure. So your Crystal River, Bostwick, Stanton trains all had...

    Ok here is what I remember from running the T series coal trains from Birmingham to Waycross which eventually wound up in Bostwick. There were a LOT of them and I mean a lot. Probably close to one a...

    This all coinsides with my other response, switching at bloated capacity. There are tons of industries that may only get one or two cars a week if even that much. Or they may take more but may not...

    You have to remember that operations in that area have changed a lot over the years, especially since the early 70s. Rice yard in Waycross is a relatively new yard with it being constructed there...

    I can tell you guys right now, with absolute certainty, that is not the case. There have been very few changes made to the physics and any that have been made is absolutely an attempt to increase...

    Also the NS had their own line down to Palatka that was eventually ripped up in the late 90s. If you follow the tracks out by the GP plant then swing SW you will see where it used to connect into the...

    The unit trains vary, at least the K trains and there are so many bulk trains heading in and out of Florida (sulfur, phosphate, aggregate, coal, etc). The Bostic symbols I'm pretty solid on since we...

    Yeah you wont find A767 on any list that I know of. What you will find is a few pictures of it around Pecan, Bostwick, etc. There are even a few pics of it taking a cut to Moncrief. What I assume...

    I think its A767 Pecan-north etc. Georgia Pacific has their own power to switch the plant. As far as I can tell CSX just shoves and pulls from the GP yard. Jacksonville has no locals with all those...

    One major one I just remembered was Q237. It ran, circa early 2000s, from Louisville - Taft - Tampa and regularly had empty Tropicana cars on the head end.

    Gosh man, you know, operations have changed soo much down there just since I worked for the railroad. In the early 2000s Baldwin Yard was a major player or at least a lot more active than now. I've...

    I can offer a little insight since I used to work north out of Waycross many years ago. You'd be correct about the manifests going into Waycross. In fact every manifest that passes through Folkston...
