Car 831 - letters to the Editor
The Frankfort coal dock is all that remains today of the engine service facility at this once-vital division point. Between the days of steam and today, the venerable structure has looked down on some unlikely sights, such as this September 2002 visit by an ex-Conrail SD40-2. Through it all, the coal dock has proudly worn its "Nickel Plate Road" lettering.

Back: With the dieselization of the Lake Erie & Western and Clover Leaf Districts, Frankfort mechanical forces gained early experience with the products of La Grange and Schenectady. In a scene evocative of Don Daily's third-trick account, four new GP7s have arrived for adjustments and set-up. The Geeps are gone today, the roundhouse faces demolition and the turntable will soon have a new home.
