Trick then Treat...the B&LE.
Author: Forever-Railfan-45

The weather made the roads very tricky but the treat at the end of the drive was worth it. Decided to venture off to the land of Conneaut, Ohio...home of the Bessemer and Lake Erie. Just missed the north bound as I pulled up to the Old Main Street crossing as it was entering the yard. Waited almost six hours for the loaded southbound ore train. First picture is of the NS 316 crossing the former NKP trestle while the loaded Bessemer and Lake Erie loaded ore train waits to come south. Numbers two and three are of the loaded ore train pulling up to Old Main Street as the CN MOW will bring the conductor up to the front of the train...

Number four is of the loaded ore train getting underway. Numbers five and six are at Weldon Road just off of Ohio route seven...

Number six is also at Weldon Road and the last two are at a grade crossing on Pennsylvania route 215. My first time seeing the B&LE let alone a SD38 leading. Have been going to Conneaut since 1992 but never really gave it much thought on railfanning the Bessemer and Lake Erie. Back then I was more interested in the "big roads..." If only I could go back in time....!

I love photo 1. Also all the B&LE photos. I bet that P3 horn sounded nice.

Nice shots!  That orange paint scheme stands out nicely from the surroundings.

You did well! I don't think I'd wait 6 hours for anything!

I would agree but that lead locomotive is very rare SD38 still in main line service...
