So Long, Fort Wayne
Sunday, November 15 , 2015 marked the last day of cargo pickup for the full Triple Crown RoadRailer network. The cutback to just a single daily RoadRailer train running direct between Detroit and Kansas City rendered the big Triple Crown hub in Fort Wayne, IN surplus. Seen here in better times in 2004, the Fort Wayne yard was a beehive of activity as trains pulled in from across the network to swap blocks and also make pick-ups and drops. Visible in this view of a number of rail bogies, staged and ready to accept trailers as they came through the gate.
It was a sight unique in railroading. Thanks for the memories!
