First topic message reminder :

i am also still looking for some more cylindrical grain hoppers, and also anything of interest in the way of model buildings and track-side scenery, so feel free to offer some up if you have any laying about or know how to come about them

Hello everyone, here's another update! Please stay tuned until the end as well, because there's a special message at the end.

As of 8:35 am Central Standard Time on 11/7/2019, the PLRX situation looks like this...

1.) The Rustyville town site has a 3-track grain car yard with a 30 car capacity now. This yard is also connected to the mainline.

2.) The grain elevator & intermodal yard track is now connected to the mainline. The loading and elevator switcher storage spurs have yet to be completed at this time but this work is going to be happening very soon.

3.) The railroad's Maintenance of way (or MOW) train has taken a few trips over the new lines but, due to issues their trucks, 3 of the cars in it cannot be used (these three cars have triple-axle trucks which have proven to be troublesome). Unfortunately this problem has forced the railroad to remove a car from its Phoenix Flyer passenger service and assign it to this service. It can use one of its other 3-axle cars (a combination Baggage/Railway Post office car) however (according to local scuttlebutt, this car's RPO section has been converted into a small kitchen in order to prepare TV dinners for the railroad's work crew).

The railroad is presently trying to fix this problem, but the cars have been placed in storage in response to it and will remain stored for the foreseeable future. 

4.) The summer version of the railroad's Phoenix Flyer has also made a test run on the new line and, aside from a very minor issue with one car's trucks (which are a 2-axle design), everything worked out fine.

5.) The work to convert a single-ended spur into one that can accommodate the unloading of bi-level as well as tri-level autoracks has been done but its end hasn't been given protection to keep these cars from derailing on it yet. 

Please stay tuned as the PLRX's story continues.

As promised, here is that special message I mentioned earlier...

I'm sure that most of you have noticed that I've been posting updates every two days by now. There's a reason for this actually, and its being done this way so as not to upset anyone. I was posting updates every day for a while but this was upsetting people and they've asked for this to stop.

Hopefully the new system has been successful in keeping people satisfied in terms of how the Phoenix's Line is progressing.

Hello everyone, here's another Phoenix Line update!

As of 12:45PM Central Standard time on 11/9/2019, the situation looks like this...

1.) The loading spur for the Archer-Daniels-Midland (ADM) elevator is in place now but, due to clearance issues, only two cars will be allowed in it at a time.  It also has an extra spur for car storage but how many cars will fit on it has not been determined yet. A dedicated parking spot for an elevator switcher is also in place, but it has not been powered up as yet.

2.) Unfortunately an issue with a section of the double-track mainline has appeared and this has created problems in regards to keeping trains together in the area. Before any work can be done however, the railroad needs to ensure that the grain car yard is empty before any work can be done to fix the issue.

3.) Another unfortunate development is that the railroad's yard switcher service  in the main yard at Rustyville is currently out of action due to mechanical issues being experienced with former CP Rail GP9 8827, which occurred almost  three weeks ago (this unit acts as a mother unit to former Southern Pacific GP7 no.5600, which was converted to a slug by the Liptonville Central Valley Railroad). This unit has not been repaired as yet but another unit (the 2448, which was a custom SD60M built by the LCVR and decorated as a CN Rail unit) has returned to service after receiving repairs for its own mechanical issues (which, thankfully, were very minor).

Please stay tuned as the Phoenix Line's story continues.

Hello everyone, here's another update on the PLRX

As of 11:50am Central Standard Time on 11/11/2019, the Phoenix Line's situation goes as follows...

1.) All of the issues with the main lines have been solved now and, much to my surprise, weren't as bad as they appeared to be at first.

2.) The "standby" track at Rustyville's ADM elevator has a maximum safe capacity of 4 cars.

3.) The grain car yard can hold 31 grain cars safely but its been determined that its better to limit its capacity to 30 cars due to clearance issues.

4.) Rustyville is going to be getting a passenger car yard soon but space restrictions mean that it will only have 3 tracks. These tracks will be rather short as well, which will limit how many cars can be held there at any particular amount of time.

5.) The Phoenix Line is now leasing some of its MOW (or Maintenance-of-way) cars (cars 404910, 411296 and 411297) to a private rail-themed hotel and restaurant company (Crossover Junction Enterprises, which was incorporated on January 22nd, 2019). These three cars have proven to be very problematic due to their 3-axle trucks and have been declared unusable on the railroad's tracks as a result.  Also, one of its former Santa Fe Railway baggage cars is now operable on its tracks.


 Please stay tuned for further updates as the Phoenix Line's story continues.

Hello everyone, another Phoenix Line Railroad update here!

As of 10:35AM Central Standard time on 11/13/2019, the situation looks like this...

1.) Work on the passenger car yard tracks in Rustyville is about 95% complete but it needs at least another day to be completed.

2.) The switch points that will allow access to this yard and Rustyville's passenger depot & enclosed water tower have been placed in their final positions now but haven't been installed as yet. 

3.) Unfortunately there's still no news about what's happening with GP9 8827 but it has been replaced with a single EMD GP35. This locomotive (the 3535) was last used by the leasing company First Union Rail but is now a PLRX unit. It saw service with its Phoenix Flyer operation.

Please stay tuned as the Phoenix Line's story continues.

Hello everyone, another Phoenix Line update here!

As of 9:30AM Central Standard Time on 11/15/2019, the situation looks like this:

1.) Work on Rustyville's passenger car yard has progressed a lot and most of its track is in place but there is some work that needs to be done before all three are fully completed.

2.) Electrical work on the other entry track to the railroad's main yard at Hillside has yet to be done, but this work is going to be done soon. 

3.) Rustyville's passenger depot & enclosed water tower now have a connection to the mainline but it has not been tested for clearance as yet. This may change at some point in the near future however.
 
4.) The switcher lead track at Rustyville's ADM elevator has been given an end of track marker now, as it never had one before (its a pile of railroad ties).
 
5.) This track will be getting its own power as the current system of powering it is much too complicated.

6.) The single-ended spur near the railroad's interchange yard at Hillside has a wheel stop on its end now but this will only affect the PLRX's boxcars as the two 89' auto carriers owned by the railroad sit too low and need space to open the loading doors on their ends. 


7.) The lease agreement between the PLRX and Crossover Junction Enterprises involving the 3 former CP Rail heavyweight maintenance-of-way cars (Tool and cable car 404910, 12-1 sleeper 411296 and 36-seat diner 411297) owned by the railroad has been terminated, but they remain in open-air storage at Rustyville. The railroad has hired its own staff for these cars though and two of them (411296 and 411297) are still in use (for the sake of clarity the term "12-1" means that this car has 12 open sections with two fold-down single beds each and a separate room that can comfortably house 3 people). There has been some talk of modifying their couplers in order to make them operable on the railroad's tracks but such remains unconfirmed at this time.   

Please stay tuned for further updates as the Phoenix Line Railroad's story continues.
