Wabash Central CNUR 7 Weed Running
This engineer has a one track mind!
Ambling at a slower speed, the Wabash Central CNUR 7 forges her way through the brush on rails that were laid as far back as 1890!
The Maumee & Western Railroad (MAW) was originally built as a Class III short line railroad over swamp ground.
As you can see, the track is in terrible shape and has not had maintenance for over 60 years. The previous owners put no money into the line. It is now under the ownership of Pioneer Railcorp Company who are slowly replacing decayed cross ties and broken rails over 51 miles of track.
Derails are a common occurrence on this stretch of track!
Let us know if you live nearby or have seen trains and engines rumbling down these tracks. We would love to hear your thoughts!
