Vermilion OH Photo Shoot
Author: train1275

It was a balmy 63 degrees in Vermilion OH on the south shore of Lake Erie on Sunday December 2, 2018. Vermilion is between Cleveland and Toledo on the old New York Central and between Bellevue and Cleveland on the former NKP, both lines now operated by NS.

A few samples:

1. GECX 7714 leads NS intermodal Train 205 through town on the old NYC.

2. NS 4089 rolls east and I think that maybe the LV Heritage came along on the far side, "something red" in any case in the blocked consist. The pitfalls of two trains at once.

3. NS 9248 and 9321 on containers west over the Vermilion River on the Central.

13. At Risden Road west of town, one crossing over from Coen Road, looking west where the NKP to NYC connector cuts in. Rails all rust on the connector.

I don't think there is a plan for it right now. I guess we are all waiting on the big PSR announcement on 2/11/19.
