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, another update from me

As of 15:50 hrs on 12/2/2019, the Phoenix Line's situation goes as follows

1.) One of the flatcars owned by this railroad has undergone some maintenance and this has helped to bring it back into service.

2.) The railroad's camera car has spent some time in service but has been returned to its place in storage.

3.) An issue with power has occurred in Hillside, and its because of an experiment that my dad tried a couple of weeks ago. 

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

Hello everyone, here's another update

As of 9:10 AM Central Standard Time on 12/4/2019, the Phoenix Line's situation looks like this: 

1.) The power issue in Hillside has turned out to be a minor one (both sets of switching points allowing access to the lead track of this village's interchange track have to be opened in order for this track to have power).

2.) Some of the railroad's bulkhead flatcars (which are both 50' and 60' long) have had a chance to operate on its tracks. all proved to be operable on these tracks.

3.) The now 50-car long "Grain Express" has yet to be tested on the westbound mainline and 22 car long "Stack & Trailer Pack" have yet to be tested, but its hoped that this will be happening at some point in the near future.

4.) The railroad may be getting another three 20' shipping container as well as its first 45' shipping container, but nothing is for sure at the present time.

5.) There is nothing to report in terms of GP9 8827 or the former CP Rail heavyweight Maintenance-Of-Way cars at this time.

6.) There is nothing to report in terms of building the railroad's Oakdale section at this time. 

7.) SD45's 7406 and 6144 have been removed from service and placed in storage due to a lack of freight traffic.  

8.) The Phoenix Flyer passenger service powered by F9A 6500C has taken several trips around the railroad and performed well.

9.) F9B 4053 remains in storage at this time, but will be used for trips to & from the Oakdale extension.

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

Hello everyone, here's another update! As of 9:15 AM Central Standard Time on 12/6/2019, there is some bad news, some good news and some neutral news.

First, the bad news.

1.) Any plans regarding construction of the Oakdale Sub and to fix the westbound yard entry track at Hillside have been put on hold until after Christmas 2019 at the very least. 

2.) The railroad's plan to acquire some more 20-foot shipping container & a 45-foot shipping container have fallen through.

3.) Former CP Rail GP9 8827 remains in storage with mechanical issues. SD45's 7604 and 6144 are also still in storage at this time.

4.) The three former CP Rail heavyweight Maintenance-of-Way cars have not had any modifications as yet and remain in open-air storage at a place called New Roanoke. 

Next, the good news.

1.) The railroad's "Grain Express" train has grown to 52 cars. Interestingly one of these cars (370708) was built as a billboard/demonstrator car and still wears its original paint (a rainbow) and markings (the chemical formula for Hexamethylene diisocyanate). The other car (100668) is currently inactive and stored in the railroad's Maintenance yard waiting for its 2nd re-branding (it was built as a CN Rail car, but became a CP Rail car shortly after its sale to this railroad).

Finally, the neutral news.

1.) Its been suggested that one of the railroad's two former Cargill hoppers (road number 7241) should be removed from the main freight roster and added to the TSR roster, and such is under consideration at this time.

2.) There has been talk of the railroad purchasing another 3 grain hoppers and extending the  train to 55 cars but, due to space restrictions, this plan is being reconsidered.

3.) The railroad's three 50-foot former "Railbox" boxcars (road numbers 10001, 10941 and 11091) have all been operated on the PLRX's tracks now and performed quite well. All of these cars continue to wear their "RBOX' reporting marks but the 11091 has a silver roof in place of the more traditional yellow one.

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

Hello everyone, a minor and quick update here.

     It turns out that I was wrong about hopper 370708, as it only has the rainbow paint and chemical formula for hexamethylene diisocyanate on just one of its sides. Also, hopper 100668 is now wearing its new number.  As of 9:30 AM Central Standard Time on 12/9/2019, there are no plans for any new construction or repairs made to the railroad due to the holidays.

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

Hello everyone, another minor and quick update here

As of 3:00 PM Central Standard Time on 12/9/2019, the Phoenix Line has managed to acquire another grain hopper. This car is a 54' 3-bay covered hopper but carries no external markings. This brings the train up 53 cars, but it hasn't been delivered as yet. 

The railroad is working on getting at least one former Milwaukee Road 54' 3-bay covered hopper too despite the fact that this will make its "Grain Express" train 54 cars long. 

Please stay tuned as this railroad's story continues.

Hello everyone, another minor update here:

Unfortunately, there has been some talk about the possibility of the train for the railroad's "Grain Express" running in two separate sections as result of length issues.  Such is only talk for now however and nothing is certain.

Stay tuned for further updates as the Railroad's story continues.

Hello everyone, here's another minor update.

As of 12:40 PM CST on 12/14/2019, two of the railroad's barley and/or grain hoppers have received some minor maintenance. Also, ownership of the grain elevator in Rustyville (which also handles malt barley) has been sold to Cargill. The general manager and personnel working at this elevator have not changed however.

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

Hello everyone, here's another relatively minor update on the Phoenix Line's situation.

As of 15:17hrs on 12/16/2019, the railroad's two former Santa Fe SD40-2's have taken a trip through its maintenance shop as well as a short operating session on the new track. Both performed reasonably well but the 5068 had to spend a little more time in the shops due to a mechanical issue. The railroad's two former CN Rail SD40-2's and former Conrail SD40-2 will be the next units to undergo this procedure but it may be postponed due to Christmas 2019. Sadly I have no construction updates to share but such is due to the christmas break.

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

Hello everyone, here's another minor update.

As of 1:15 PM Central Standard Time on 12/19/2019, the Phoenix Line's situation looks like this...

1.) Former CN Rail SD40-2's 5937 & 5243, former Conrail GP38-2 8276 & SD40-2 6408, former Southern Pacific GP35 6534 and former Union Pacific 4-8-8-4  4008 have yet to perform tests on the new track but these will probably happen at some point in the new year.

2.) There is nothing to report in terms of former CP Rail GP9 8827, as it remains unusable due to mechanical issues. 

3.) The three former CP Rail heavyweight maintenance-of way cars remain in storage in the yard at New Roanoke at this time but the railroad continues to try and sort this matter out.

4.) There is also nothing to report in terms of track maintenance and/or repairs, as these operations are on hold due to the holiday season.

Please stay tuned as the railroad's story continues.

Hello everyone, here's another very minor update.

The railroad had some track issues recently but these have been fixed again. Its also moved some more carloads of barley and grain, but everything else remains on hold due to the holidays.

Please stay tuned as the railroad's story continues.

Hello everyone, hope you've all had a happy and safe Christmas!

I have some news regarding to Phoenix Line to share with you all.

1.) The Grain Express has grown to 54 cars now, as the railroad has managed to acquire 2 more cylindrical covered hoppers. These cars are not active as yet however, as they need to be evaluated by the PLRX's safety team first. The possibility of operating two separate trains has also come up again, but nothing is 100% certain at the present time. 

2.) The towns of Arlee and Timberneck Gulch have recently learned of the new railroad, and both have expressed interest in receiving service from it. Talks in regards to this have taken a break for the holiday season, but are set to resume  at some point in 2020. The town of Oakdale also remains without PLRX service for now, but talks about this are continuing (they are also on hiatus for the holiday season).

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

Hello again everyone, here's another update

As of 1:10 PM CST on 12/27/2019, the Phoenix Line's situation looks like this.

1.) Unfortunately one of the railroad's barley hoppers (road number 496085) has been derailing on a switch near Rustyville's grain elevator as of late but the track has been altered in an attempt to prevent this from happening.

2.) The railroad's undercoated 54-foot Pullman-Standard 3-bay covered hopper has arrived now. This car has been placed in the railroad's maintenance yard for an overall inspection before it gets proper ownership markings and an official road number. According to the information that's available to me, this car will be given markings for a private company called Hollbrook Farms (reporting mark HGFX) and numbered as 240710. 

I am uncertain if this car will be operating in and/or with the railroad's "Grain Express" service or not at this time (as of 3:30 PM Central Standard Time on 12/27/2019), but I'll do what I can to remain informed.   

I also have to say that the railroad has decided to cease buying grain hoppers after getting its 56th hopper. The priority for the railroad will be center beam and inter-modal cars after this. This will be well cars for the most part but will accept 3 and 5 unit spine cars. 

Please stay tuned for further updates at this railroad's story continues.

Hello everyone, got some new information to share (as of 9:14 AM on 12/30/2019).

1.) The railroad now has two cylindrical hoppers with the road number 604301. From what I've been told, the first one is going to be retired (as a result of derailment-related damage). There is a plan to sell this car to a private party in Oakdale for use as either a mini grain elevator or a grain storage building but no action has been performed at this time.  

2.) The railroad's newest covered hopper has been undergoing road tests recently but hasn't received its new reporting marks or road number yet. It turns out that I was wrong about its permanent road number too, as the Phoenix Line wants it to be known as HGFX 102407.

3.) Another of the railroad's new grain hoppers remains in the railroad's maintenance/storage yard waiting for its number to be repainted. This car was originally known as SKNX 397024, but has been allowed to rust quite badly and this rust has obscured its number on both of its sides.    

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

Happy 2020 everyone, hope you all had a great start to the new year!!!
Sadly mine didn't but that's not something I'm going to talk about in here. 
Moving on, I have another update to share with all of you...

As of 5:20 PM CST on 1/3/2010, there has been some talk of the railroad spending some cash and manpower on extending the main yard at Hillside to accommodate a few more freight cars. This is only talk for now however.

Stay tuned for further updates.
