Back for a couple months. Caught GLC leaving TC today about 1pm with 3 cars. And a silver maybe Volvo wagon with "MQT" on the back and a radio antenna on the back roof that was following the train. Is that anyone here? I was the one tailing you in the truck because you were driving way too slow, LOL. Anyway, Several GLC crews scattered about. All the old PRR line from the train station up to where TSBY left off rebuilding on River Road, and also the C&O line to Williamsburg is getting a lot of tie work. Must have been several thousand ties laying along the tracks (some new, some the old that were just replaced). Looks like about every 5th tie, but some places more than that, and some areas less (where they appear to be in better shape). Good to see the work!
