Hello everyone, here are some updates about the railroad (as of 9:30AM CDST on 8/22/2022)

Unfortunately the demand for woodchips has outstripped the capacity of  the railroad's two 40' grain-loading boxcars, and forced the company to make an insert for one of its 50' gondolas. This device hasn't been used yet, but there are plans to begin using it to transport the aforementioned load as soon as physically possible.

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

Hello everyone, here are some updates from the railroad to share (as of 3:50PM CDST on 8/29/2022).

The insert added to one of the PLRX's 50' gondolas has been put into use now, and successfully transported a load of woodchips to the paper mill in Arlee. Its been returned to Oakdale now, but will be used to transport another bulk load of woodchips soon.

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

Hello again everyone, here are some more updates from the Phoenix Line Railroad (as of 11:10AM CDST on 8/31/2022).

While the railroad has managed to handle the demand for woodchips so far, there's been rumblings that it will be making an insert for a 2nd 50' gondola at some point in the near future. Its also been said that the PLRX is looking for some woodchip hoppers as well, but such has yet to be confirmed.

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

Hello everyone, here's a few more updates from the Phoenix Line Railroad (as of 10:25AM CDST on 9/2/2022).

The previously mentioned rumor has been confirmed as a woodchip insert for a 2nd 50' gondola has been made now. This will be put into use very soon too, as the demand for woodchips has grown. The PLRX's pair of 40' grain-loading boxcars are still used in this role as well, but have been reduced to a secondary role as a result of the aforementioned events.

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

Hello again everyone, got some more updates to share (as of 10:40AM CDST on 9/6/2022(.

The 2nd woodchip insert has been put to use now, and the car using it ,a former Great Northern Railway (U.S.) 50' gondola, has been loaded as well as spotted for unloading at Arlee's paper mill. The car will be collect soon though, as the demand for woodchips remains high.

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

Hello again everyone, have some updates to share (as of 9/25/2022)

The railroad has managed to find a flatcar to replace its former ATSF one now. This car, former BN road no. 613209, will replace the 90806 at some point but other plans have forced the PLRX to put this project on hold for the time being. The railroad has also managed to acquire a former CB& gondola (83115) which has taken over from its 2nd  340203.

It also has a 2nd tank car numbered as 2266, but this one is in much better shape than its predecessor. Unfortunately I have no information as  to if/when it will be used in a train at present, but will do what I can to gather some when possible. Two other things of note are that the railroad has another locomotive as well as an actual woodchip hopper now.

While the latter (former SP road no.566880, which is the outside braced version of this type of car) can be used as is, the locomotive (former CP Rail SD40-2 no.6017) is of no use due its need of major repairs. From what I've been told, the railroad has expressed interest in reselling this unit to a scrapyard (as a result of its inability to do such work), but didn't provide me with an actual timeline. As with the 2nd 2266, I will do what I can to provide information on this as soon as possible.

The fact that the 6017 cannot be used means that the railroad continues to only have 7 EMD SD40-2 locomotives operational and available for use on its trains. Such is an unfortunate situation, but it can't be helped. Admittedly I was wanting to share an update about the railroad's three former CP Rail heavyweight maintenance of way cars in this post but, frustratingly, nothing has changed with them in the past year.  

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