Conrail Branch Line Spinoffs?
« on: March 13, 2014, 12:17:13 PM »
I've got an idea for a small layout for college; I could build a small layout based off of a Conrail (or NS or CSX) branch line that was spun off somewhere in Indiana; pretty much one side would have an "interchange" at the spin off point and the other side would have a grain elevator and fertilizer area (think the Logansport and Indiana Northern from GMR) except it would be much smaller.
So my question as I begin research for a prototype to find pictures is when did Conrail start spinning these lines off? I have a GP9 which would be great as an ex-PC umir included in the sale, or I could use one of my U23B's, again as an ex-Conrail unit, so knowing what timeline I'm looking at would be great; I also have a track plan in mind which I can post in the next few days (I have lab in fifteen minutes and a physics test tonight, but then it's spring break)

INER 2230 is ex-PC, as evidenced by the third picture. It's not a GP9, but INER 1602 and INER 1770 are. They don't appear to have any U-boats. Dunno if this helps.
