American Railroads

News each weekday of American railroads. Our focus is on freight rail, but Amtrak and commuter rail are also essential ingredients. Nothing published on holidays.

Amtrak “Cabbage” 90224 was out of service for more than three years and was recently rebuilt and returned to service. It no longer has a power plant, but its controls and brake piping are intact and cabled to the other end of the train and the powered locomotive. Here, it is bringing up the rear of train No. 335, enroute from Chicago to Milwaukee, on October 8. It will take about 90 minutes for the run.
