We hope you enjoy your visit to our WebSite. We are not "FLASHy" like many, but we offer you authentic material. Much of this material is not available elsewhere on the Internet. It was painstakingly collected over many years from such sources as Yale University. We never knowingly link you to any WebSites that contain a virus, collect your personal information, or are those machine-generated sites rampant with "Ads by Google". For some of our material, there is a small nominal charge. Funny how someone who will pay $49.95 for a fancy book that has absolutely nothing new (to me anyway) in it, will object to something like $3.99 for a wealth of information that is, for all practical purposes, unavailable elsewhere.

ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.

Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

Sears Oil Company Museum

The restored Sears Oil Co. Service Station museum

ROME, NEW YORK — The restored Sears Oil Co. Service Station museum at George and Liberty streets will open Monday for its second full season.

Through June, the museum will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Extended hours are planned for the summer.

The 1930 service station was restored by Howard P. Sears Jr. as a tribute to his father, Howard P. Sears Sr., and to his early business career, which he began almost 90 years ago.

The restored station, which includes period gas pumps, the original oil change pit, oil bottles, air pumps and hoses, opened in August 2005.

Memorabilia of its decades of active service line the walls inside the station, including the original time clock, the last cash register and a case full of examples of Sears products.

The Rome station was closed in 1973 during the oil embargo and remained boarded up for 30 years until Sears Jr. restored it to its original 1930’s look.

The Sears Museum is the only station of its classic design still standing. Similar stations also were built on Oriskany Boulevard in Utica and Main Street in Ilion.

Volunteers staff the station to entertain and educate visitors with tales of the station and legacy of Sears Sr., who started off repairing and selling bicycles.

Nice Tramway Line 2 FRANCE: NICE WILL OPEN TRAMWAY LINE 2 in YEAR 2016!
In a surprise move, Nice Mayor Christian Estrosi changed his mind about running Line 2 up the Promenade des Anglais and instead went with a plan that provides an 8.6 kilometer "tram/metro" with 3.6 kilometers below ground. It will cost €'450,000,000 and carry 110,000 - 140,000 daily passengers. It will run between Gare de Riquier and new? Gare Multimodal Saint-Augustin.
Boulevard Rene Cassin / Avenue Californie at the Champion/Carrefour food market has a tramway in its future.
Fifty-three years after the closure of the Tramway de Nice et du Littoral, the Tramway de Nice began to serve its Northern and Eastern sections. 2007 saw the completion of Line 1 serving the North-South needs of the city. Line 2 now addresses the East-West needs. This WebSite will be updated continuously until completion of Line 2 in Year 2016.

See a presentation on the Nice, France tramway extensions including a movie based on Deputy-Mayor Estrosi's Tramway Line 2 presentation September 26, 2011.

Montreal Railroad Stations

Near Montreal Gare Centrale
This building is neither Gare Centrale nor Canadian National headquarters. But look at the train etchings between the windows. Could this be from an earlier train station? It is located in the area between the Fairmont Hotel le Reine Elizabeth and the CN headquarters building. It is called Rue Belmont, but is not much more than an alley.

Gare Centrale sits on the site of Canadian Northern Railway's now-demolished Tunnel Terminal. Reading through THE MOUNT ROYAL TUNNEL ELECTRIFICATION, I didn't get any answers, but did find out a lot of interesting facts. This building could have been from before the CN headquarters (1961) and Fairmont Hotel le Reine Elizabeth (1958) were built. Now, the station's air rights are completely developed, but before that period there was still a lot of open space.

At the end of the 1920s, the newly formed Canadian National Railways had several Montreal terminals (Bonaventure Station, Tunnel Terminal, Moreau Street Station, and McGill Street) and sought to consolidate them. The solution chosen was to take advantage of the Mount Royal Tunnel and bring all western trains through the tunnel to a big electrified central station, which would then allow the development of air-rights, similar to Grand Central Terminal in New York City. The new station opened in 1943.

In addition to Place Ville Marie, the Fairmont Hotel le Reine Elizabeth, and the CN Headquarters, Montreal became home to one of the largest commercial retail/office developments in the world when Place Bonaventure was built on part of the Central Station terminal trackage, a few blocks northeast of the former location of Bonaventure Station.

On 9/24/2010, Quebec's AMT unveils a new dual-mode diesel- and electric-powered locomotive, that will enable the agency to add more departures and commission the Train de l’Est.



The new locomotives are designed to travel anywhere on AMT’s commuter-rail network, increase capacity and help reduce travel times for certain connections by accessing a tunnel under Mount Royal. AMT had issued a request for proposals jointly with New Jersey Transit and awarded the 20-unit, $236.3 million contract to Bombardier Transport. Seventy-five percent of the project is being financed by the ministére des Transports du Québec, with AMT funding the remaining portion.

The Repentigny-Mascouche Line. is a commuter rail line, proposed to be operated in the Greater Montreal Quebec, Canada area, by the Agence métropolitaine de transport, or AMT. The 51-kilometre (32 mile) line would use the existing Mount Royal Tunnel and Canadian National track from Le Gardeur to oprate from Montreal's Central Station to Repentigny. New track will be built from Repentigny to Terrebonne along the Quebec Autoroute 640, then the former Canadian Pacific (now the Chemins de Fer Québec-Gatineau) line to Mascouche. The total journey to/from Masouche and Montreal would be 61 minutes.

At an estimated cost of $390 million (CAD), the line will have 14 stops (11 new, three existing) and offer five departures per weekday rush-hour. The line was originally scheduled to be operational in 2008, but has now been pushed back to 2012.

Head End

Railway Express and Railway Post Office
REA RPO Header On passenger trains, railroads operated lots of equipment other than sleepers, coaches, dining cars, etc. This equipment was generally called 'head-end' equipment, these 'freight' cars were at one time plentiful and highly profitable for the railroads. In the heyday of passenger service, these industries were a big part of the railroad's operations, and got serious attention.
