Interesting 'stuff' at Chillicothe, OH
Author: santafe199

The fun part of a railfan excursion through unknown territory is exactly the way Forrest Gump so eloquently states it: “You never know what you’ll get”. How true. While passing through Ohio I found me some neat “stuff” in Chillicothe between Sugar & Redd Sts near the 7th St underpass:

1. NS 901654, a specialty flat loaded down with pre-fabricated switch components is coupled to…

2. & 3. …N&W 514888.

4. While I was there NS 7102 toodled on by with a partially loaded (partially unloaded?) center beam flat.

The wood on that car looks like untreated railroad ties, and in that case the car may have weighed out before it cubed out.

Love to see locomotive cranes on the railroad. Especially cool to see the N&W logo in such good shape decades on.

I got the impression the paint was fairly fresh. Maybe NS has retained the N&W reporting marks?

This may have been rebuilt by the nearby shops in Portsmouth. I have seen them with the N & W hamburger.
