DRGW 5402
Title:  DRGW 5402
Description:  This is the westbound CDK. The D&RGW and NS had a coal train that ran from Colorado to Bluffs, IL where it was transloaded to a barge. The power and caboose would run light to Decatur after the train was set out. The next afternoon, the light power would be called west after SC-1. That gave the crew plenty of time to put the empties together and head west to Kansas City.

Ridgely Interlocking
Title:  Ridgely Interlocking
Description:  This view looks south at Ridgely. The new home signals for northbound trains were not turned yet. The I&M northbound signal has been moved to within 30 feet of the diamond. On the right the former interchange track has now been extended to occupy the souhtbound main. It is interesting to see that all of the new signals only have two lights on each signal head which means the best signal any train can get is approach.

Ridgely Tower
Title:  Ridgely Tower
Description:  The tower is scheduled to close on June 29th. The work continues. The double track UP has been cut back to the tower itself. The I&M now has a power switch just south of the bridge with the old interchange track relaid with 136lb rail so that UP trains using the I&M between Barr and Ridgely do not have to stop and open the switches at the tower. The interchange track has also ben realigned and now occupies the area south of the diamond where the second track used to sit.
