The new Munoz Lines . . . . service HAS been restored

It has been three years and one month since service to Munoz was interrupted. Today, Mayor Ginny Munoz took to the town center and announced that service to New York City and points west has been restored. The town is jubilant. Trains will run from New York through to Philadelphia and then on to Kansas City and Munoz. Grand Central Terminal has been fully restored, power to all tracks below the Terminal is complete and the subway is running. Electrified service is now available to Philadelphia and on to Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. Steam service is available from Grand Central Terminal in the form of the Empire State Express now running daily.

Zimmerman steam yard is fully operational with the newly renovated roundhouse and its associated diesel building on the premises. Thirteen tracks now serve the steam facility. Superintendent Scrapiron Scher reports that miscellaneous switch control, almost complete on spur tracks will be completed by the end of the week. Trains are now arriving at Kansas City Union Station. The Tropicana manufacturing facility is complete and the Juice Train pulled by CSX locomotives is running daily to the New York City environs.

Scrapiron Scher announces that any OGR Forum members who would like a tour of the line on December 30 are welcome to send an e-mail. ALL ABOARD !!

 

Passengers will please refrain, This train's got the disappearin' railroad blues...

Glad to hear that service has been restored.  Is it still possible to ride behind double-headed Santa Fe 3751 Class      4-8-4's?  I would take you up on your kind offer to visit the Muñoz Lines, were it not for the 26-hour, 1775-mile drive. Hope you and your guests have a great day of O gauge railroading.

Elliot apparently I have missed most of photos of your progress will be nice to see them when available and hope you have many years of enjoyment running the new layout. or possibly you can steer me to another post where they reside?

NUMBER 90  I believe Amtrak is in talks with Munoz lines to add special cars and free transport to catch the needed Amtrak train so those from far away places can arrive in time to see and visit the newly created Munoz lines and affiliate railroads. this will allow travelers to enjoy the scenery passing by and relax while the engineer and conductor take care of the rest.

The really good news is that I have finished the wiring. The last toggles and LED's went into Panel Two tonight and all track is wired. Done, Completo. Finito. I cannot express in words how I dislike wiring. Now, most, if not all of the work is scenery which I love to do. Buildings and scenes and people and lights, yahoo . . . . Ooooops, I forgot. Lights need wires. **** !
