New CKIN Motive power, siding, track improvements.

The first of three new second generation SD's for the CKIN is nearing completion at Vermilion Valley Shops. (See Trains article)

Also it appears noone has mentioned the new mile long siding spanning from the NS connection at Thomaston north to 1475 S.

Last years maintenance season included another tie crew and culvert replacement on the north end. This season will bring a tie crew to the Malden branch. Believe the estimate on that project is 16-18,000 ties.
