    That is the typical Defender/Scimitar news. Large, attention-grabbing headline, big, splashy photos, and almost no substance. And what's that picture in the lower left corner? Is that Kitty LaTerre?

    Downers Grove is a REAL man's railroad town just west of Chicago with a triple track mainline owned by the BNSF. We have daily Metra and Amtrak service and regular runs of coal and intermodal freight through downtown. The railroads have served our town since its start, dropping off Sears Catalog homes to be built by the town's hard working residents. The passenger station was once demolished by a CB&Q Zephyr train.

    There is a hobby shop dedicated exclusively to TRAINS, not race cars or those toys for kids practicing for future Predator drone patrols.http://www.timberlinetrainshop.com and the other guy in town sells Kato - only in N scale!

    We also have a lock on the greatest and longest lasting N-scale railroad. It is Bill and Wayne Reid's Cumberland Valley Lines PRR subdivision. http://home.comcast.net/~skytop35/CVS/index.html Even the library has a G scale layout along with the wooden snap track filled with Thomas the Tank Engine trains.

    Besides I just find this stuff on-line. I can't help it if the other four news organizations in New Essen aren't as seduced by Chairman Boyer as the Defender/Scimitar.

    No more disparaging remarks about my hometown. Or I might have to sic ChicagoNW on you!

    The Chairman has some additional opportunities:

    The derailment and traffic snarl in Bridgeport, CT has generated new opportunities for Schuylkill Valley Railroad Chairman J. Boyer. The New Essen News has learned that Chairman Boyer accepted a short term consultant position with the ailing Metro-North Railroad.

    Apparently, recent derailments on the SVRR have increased the Chairman's value as a consultant. The poor track maintenance and weather conditions of Hurricane Sandy contributed to two derailments last fall. In addition, the Chairman's attempts to expand the New Essen's regional transportation options also made him "the ideal candidate" for the Metro North group.

    The Chairman also recently received the Humanitarian Award for his dedication to the welfare of SVRR employees. He also likes puppies and kittens - which apparently was a deciding factor in the award.

    The standard payment for a railroad consultant in the New York area is about $75,000. There are concerns that the New York prices might seduce the Chairman into taking a permanent position in the New York City area.

    The recent disaster in Quebec has safety inspectors looking hard at oil-by-rail shipments.

    The recent train derailment and explosion of shale oil bearing cars in Quebec has raised new concerns of safety of the oil-by-rail shipments. "I am confident that this will be an investigation that changes the industry," declared Canadian Transportation Safety Board (TSB) investigator Glen Pilon. Similar fears are present in the Delware Valley. Oil refineries in Port Carbon have been recipients of such cargo carried by the Schuylkill Valley Railroad.

    Oil shipments by rail have increased in frequency since the extraction from oil-bearing shale in central Canada. The number of railcars loaded with crude or refined fuel per week in the United States has dropped by about 5 percent since reaching a record 14,500 tank cars during May, according to Reuters calculations based on data from the Association of American Railroads released on Thursday.
    At 13,664 cars through June 8, the latest week's loadings are still up 28 percent from a year ago, equivalent to about 1.4 million bpd. With crude oil estimated to make up about half of all such shipments, that's about a tenth of U.S. production. Weekly AAR data do not distinguish between crude and refined fuels. Still, this is a slower pace than earlier this year. In the first quarter alone, crude oil shipments jumped by 166 percent to the equivalent of 760,000 bpd, AAR said last month. Since early 2011, traffic has been growing mostly steadily every week.

    The Montreal, Maine, and Atlantic Railroad operated the runaway train that exploded in the center of the Quebec town of Lac-Megantic. A regional railroad with larger trackage that the SVRR, the MM & A shipped twice as much oil-by-rail to the refinery in New Brunswick from North Dakota. The SVRR receives its oil from recently reactivated wells in central and western Pennsylvania. They are shipped to Port Carbon for further refining.

    In response to safety questions raised by the New Essen News, Chairman Boyer stated that the SVRR "constantly evaluates safety concerns and corrects any problems as soon as possible. We have procedures in place that would prevent the Canadian incident from happening here."

    While such assurances are expected from the Chairman of any company, Chairman Boyer has overlooked the SVRR's recent derailments in February and March. Whether the derailments were related to damage from Hurricane Sandy or poor track maintenance, Chairman Boyer's safety record is beginning to approach that of Sir Topham Hatt of the Sodor Railway.

    Here's a article on the stability of the SVRR Board:

    August 19, 2013
    Concerns over the recent expenditures by the Schuylkill Valley Railroad have triggered the abrupt resignation of board member Samuel Archer yesterday.

    Archer was critical of the recent purchase by SVRR Chairman J. Boyer and the rest of the board of its fourth MP15 switcher and a GP40 local transfer engine. “While the SVRR has suffered from a lack of switching capacity in the past,” he wrote in his resignation letter, “Chairman Boyer’s purchase of this model switcher borders on the obsessive.” Archer was also critical of the board “rubber stamping” the Chairman’s recommendations as he continues to assemble the vital pieces for New Essen Area Transit (NEAT). This regional passenger transport network will bring passengers and workers from the surrounding area to downtown New Essen businesses.

    In response to an inquiry by NEN, Chairman J. Boyer himself responded with engineering studies produced by the SVRR engineering department. They claimed that the narrow track line serving Pennsylvania mines was ideal for the four axle diesels like the MP15 and GP40. He also claimed that Archer’s reason for his resignation was due to “personal reasons that require medical treatment”. The Chairman insinuated that these may require the assistance of a specialized psychologist.

    This recent resignation echoes the start of a spate of resignations by the board of Metra, the Chicago area regional rail transit system. Five different Metra board members have resigned in the last month, rendering the group impotent as a decision making body. The reasons for resignation have ranged from an excessive “golden parachute” for the Board Chairman as reported by a disgraced “whistle-blower” to members not living in the region that they represented on the Board. It is possible that the resignation of Samuel Archer could trigger a similar exodus from the SVRR board.

    Raise a glass in memory of those who rest in peace.

    8/31/2013

    The short-line railroad world mourned the loss of two railroad entrepreneurs this week. The deaths of Brian Cately, CEO of Alligator Lines, and RJ Corman, of Corman Railroad Group, saddened the hearts of rail fans across the nation last weekend. Both men lost their long-standing battles with different cancers.

    Brian Cately, CEO of Alligator Lines, was instrumental in raising the railroad’s image. Originally founded by James L. Alligator in Pokery, Florida, the railroad was situated halfway between Miami and the Orlando area - a key location for rail traffic. Alligator chose to focus on passenger traffic and built the railroad and associated structures to service that industry. The interchange area became a servicing area for many different railroads as they competed for passenger traffic in the central and south Florida area. The resulting runs of various liveries of different railroads earned the Alligator Lines Rail Road the sobriquet “The Eclectic Line of the South”.

    CEO Cately continued the railroad’s unique place as a short line Florida railroad. Despite takeover pressure from both the Florida East Coast Railway and the Corman Railroad Group, Cately managed to keep the railroad together. He skillfully used the internet to build a wide following for the upstart railroad, keeping rail fans and internet savvy businesses aware of the latest building and railway construction projects in the Pokery, Florida area. This garnered attention, respect, and business clients, allowing Alligator Lines to continue to create unique “servicing agreements” with the larger railroads threatening to buy out the company. With the loss of the CEO that provided its backbone, the future and growth of the Alligator Lines is uncertain.

    R. J. “Rick” Corman had also built a railway from scratch. Originally involved in his uncle’s excavation business, Corman and his company were hired for railway repair and construction projects involving the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. When Congress began deregulating the railroads with the Stagger Act in 1984, Corman was there to buy up the small sections of unprofitable railway lines. They acquired sections from the L&N and Conrail railroads and today operate more than 600 miles of track. These short-line railroads transport all types of raw material resources throughout the country. The company had also recently signed an auto transportation deal with the Toyota Motor Company.

    R. J. also never left his construction roots. The company also was involved in railroad disaster cleanup. After railroad derailments and spills, Corman equipment would be dispatched to the accident site to repair the damage. The pinnacle of these efforts came after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005. R. J. Corman Railroad Group repaired 40 miles of track and seven damaged bridge on the CSX right-of-way. The company also rebuilt the CSX Gentilly yard in New Orleans.

    The Schuylkill Valley Railroad Board issued a statement lamenting the loss of these two railroad men. In addition to offering condolences to their families, Chairman J. Boyer recognized Mr. Cately as “serving as an inspiration for many railroad enthusiasts” for many years. Boyer also stated that ”Mr. Corman was an entrepreneur who changed the direction of many aspects of railroad operations in the country”. The statement recognized that Corman was not only “an inspired businessman but also a humanitarian who supported many causes.”

    Both men and their insight will be sorely missed in the railroad community.

    The federal shutdown hasn't stopped some work in New Essen:

    As the federal government shutdown enters its second weekend, the impact has been felt in several areas of New Essen. The furloughed employees at the Laidlaw Federal Building have not been at work, hurting the profits of Mike’s Diner and other local sandwich shops as well as downtown businesses. Many private contractors supplying services to the federal government have also been hurt. The lack of funding has stopped several building and construction projects in the New Essen area.

    However, the Allenwood Building Company is still working hard. They continue to employ workers on many projects in the area. The street renovations in the north end of New Essen as well as stations and bridges associated with the New Essen Wide Transit (NEWT) project continue to be constructed. Responding to an inquiry by the New Essen News, President Bruno “The Big Banana” Bonano claimed to have funding for these projects. He stated that the company “had received most of our Federal grant money before any of this stuff began”. Most of the funding for NEWT comes from transportation grants from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He stated that the company has “many friends in high places who assure us that we should not fear having their funding cut.”

    Despite these assertions, progress on the street renovations and railroad structures has been almost non-existent. Workers are at the project sites but progress seems slow. The only project in New Essen that appears to be nearing completion is the Gethsemane Cemetery. The cemetery, close to St. Mark’s Church, seems to receiving a lot of care and attention from the Allenwood Building Company. The pavement and fencing around the cemetery are new and the statue of Jesus at the turnaround has been newly repainted. The crypts and headstones have detailed and adjusted and the landscaping has been cut and contoured. This dedication to the memory of New Essen’s former citizens seems to have a misplaced benefit to the community by a company known for its “alleged” connections to the mob.

    One wonders which “friends” in which “high places” have encouraged this dedication to hard work on a cemetery by the Allenwood Building Company.

    If you wish to tour the construction currently being done by Allenwood Mr. Bonano would be happy to take you for a ride.

    Here's the latest on Jimmi's Gravestone:

    Many have applauded the recent completion of a “beautification project” at the Gethesmane Cemetery by the Allenwood Building Company. The replacement of battered headstones, the repaving of the access road, and the repainting of the “Jesus on the Cross” statue have drawn praise from local residents and the internet public. As it turns out, cleanliness may NOT be next to godliness.

    Investigative reporters from New Essen News compared the last survey map completed in 1977 with the locations of current headstones in the newly renovated cemetery. Several family plots have additional headstones that were not on the 1977 survey. Specifically, there are an additional SEVENTEEN markers that have been added to the cemetery after the Allenwood renovations. These additional headstones are dutifully inscribed with the names of people belonging to “the family plot” and the dates of their birth and demise, but they are not marked on the 1977 survey map.

    President Bruno “Big Banana” Bonano of the Allenwood Building Company responded to an inquiry from the New Essen News. He claimed that members of a construction team happened upon an unknown cemetery during a construction project. Seventeen bodies were recovered and processed by the county coroner and then, thanks to the generosity of the company and local plot holders, interred in the Gestemane Cemetery. The president again denied links to the local Allenwood prison and some of the “good fellas” who reside within its walls.

    Thomas Harlin, assistant coroner, verified these events but, due to the state of remains, was unable to determine the cause of death of the older corpses. The remains belonged to 9 males, 4 females, and 4 children who died between the late 1700’s and the last twenty years. DNA samples did not match any missing individuals in the modern period.

    The challenges for investigative reporters and law enforcement will be to track down the geneology records for these individuals. The courthouse fire in 1907 destroyed some of the county records that would be used for such a search. St Mark’s Church and other churches would have some death records but none for internment at family or outside city limit cemeteries.

    The real challenge may be in the amount of man hours required to search these records to detect a fraudulent entry. With newly restored headstones and replaced family markers throughout the cemetery, it will be impossible to determine which graves are new and which are original. Coupled with the expense of exhuming all the graves without knowing where to search, the task might be beyond the available funds for those who would be willing to try.

    Is it possible Mr. Bonano and his “friends in high places” may have once again successfully hidden their activities in plain sight?

    It looks like Chairman Boyer's favorite brew is safe:

    Ding-a-ling Brewery Fire

    Nov 2 --The fire that caused an estimated $1 million damage to the Dingaling Brewery on Saturday night wasn't as bad as it looked and will have no effect on the brewing operations or distribution, the plant manager said Sunday morning.
    "The fire looked a lot worse than it really was," said Jim Melkey, speaking from the scene.

    New Essen fire marshal, Albarito “The Torch” Arbella, was looking into the massive blaze at the Dingaling Brewery. He said the fire appeared to be accidental and has concluded his investigation. On Sunday, they turned the site over to adjusters and investigators with the brewery's insurance company, Gambino Fire and Casualty.

    Melkey said the fire started several stories up in an exterior wall and most of the damage was confined to that wall, he said. Flames never reached inside and never damaged any of the beer in storage there.

    "None of the product was jeopardized and it was business as usual on Monday morning," he said. "We are very fortunate. It does look bad. There is a gaping hole and charred remains, but there is no internal damage, except for the hole in the wall."

    He said about 70 people work in the brewery and none of the employees working at the time of the fire was injured. No one will lose work time because of the fire, he said. "Though there is some damage, it's nothing we can't work around and continue to make beer," Melkey said. "Fires are bad, but this could have been far, far, far worse."

    Fire Marshall Arbella said “The fire started in an isolated portion of the outside wall in a part of the building that is very old and very high up." He said once the fire reached the top, it ignited 60-year-old timbers that were used to support the building's facade.

    “From the street, it appeared the entire five-story building was on fire, but in reality, it was just the outside wall. Fire damage to the structure itself accounted for the most of the estimated loss”, he added.

    New Essen police and firefighters from Engine Company 21 arrived at the brewery and found flames leaping from the roof of the five-story storage portion of the plant and described the building as being "engulfed in flames." The second alarm was then sounded and the company from South Side station was added to the force. About 60 firefighters from were battling the two-alarm fire. Many climbed five stories to enter the building where they were met with dense smoke and high-heat conditions. Fire Marshall Arbella redeployed his firefighters based on this new information.

    Firefighters inside were then evacuated and the fire-fighting strategy changed to using multiple aerial ladder trucks, dumping water onto the flames from outside. It took about an hour to bring the fire under control, officials said, though firefighters continued attempts to reach hot spots and burning embers around the third story of the building between the exterior and interior wall. One firefighter was slightly injured and hospitalized. He was treated and later released.

    Dingaling is the second oldest brewer operating in Pennsylvania and one of the largest American-owned beer makers, distributing millions of barrels yearly across the East Coast. The company was founded by D. G. Ding-a-ling in 1918. After the suspicious death of his son in 1989, his grandson Richard C. Ding-a-ling, supported by a group of investors from Allen Wood and Associates, became president of the company. He has kept family members off of the board of directors while adding famous “family” names like Giacobbe, Scarlotti, and Gambino. The fire is just the latest in a series of setbacks as the brewery faces increased competition from the expanding Yuengling brewey in Pottsville, PA.

    There they go again. The rag calling itself the New Essen News once again trying to insinuate that everything in New Essen is connected to organized crime. Well, thanks to the NEFD for saving the beer!

I can't believe that one man like Chairman Boyer has enough money, power, coercion, and intimidation to make everyone in that town do what he wants. It has to be an organized crime family!

    Isn't it interesting that the company got $1 million dollars for a fire that didn't even stop production of New Essen's hometown brew?

    That million will be well spent. Allenwood Construction is on the job doing the repair work as we speak.
    Aside to the Federal Government...Since you are watching everything on-line let me remind you that New Essen, PA is a fictional city on a model railroad. Implied links to organized crime are an attempt at humor. I'm really not in control of ANYTHING!

    He's telling the truth! Just search for New Essen News, PA on-line. All that comes up are these newspaper articles and some incredible photographs of this "model" city.

    This was a duplicate post... but now I'm going to add some real news.

    As I was looking through Jimmi's Flickr feed, I discovered a lost edition of the New Essen Scimitar/Defender.

    This story belongs around post #21 and fits between the two articles in post #134
