Seen NS 206, 2 CSX YN2 GE's, 4 YN3 SD70MAC's Including CNW Today
Author: cornerfieldhobby

Went up to the tracks today along the NS & CSX mains in Lake County. Only was able to see 4 trains. Reason was because of the sleet. It got very heavy sometimes. Anyway, here are the photos from today.

1st photo is of NS 206 flying 60MPH eastbound through Unionville Ohio crossing County Line Road.
Photos 2 through 7 are 10 minutes later after that NS 206 of the meet I caught with a freight and intermodal. The westbound freight was lead by CSX YN2 AC4400CW #504 & YN2 C40-8W #7826 which he had 2 CNW boxcars, which I'll have a photo of later this evening. He ended up meeting a CSX eastbound Intermodal lead by 2 EMD CSX YN3 SD70MAC's #4794 & #4555. He was the longest Intermodal I ever saw. He was 83 cars if you count the couplers, but if you count the platforms with containers were 223. He had 621 axles. So this was pure EMD power. The 8 photo is later in the afternoon with another CSX eastbound intermodal lead by another 2 EMD CSX YN3 SD70MAC's in Mentor Ohio. So I did not see any CSX GEVO's, OMG. Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos.
