My Last Visit With The WNYP MLW's...Driftwood Turn
Author: Ohiorailfan

I made one last trip to the WNYP yesterday to witness the MLW's on the Driftwood Turn as I don't plan on visiting again until the GE's are in service. Being a Saturday morning the crew was OD earlier than normal and were out of the shops by 7am. We headed straight to Eldred where we started the chase. As normal the train went to Turtle Point and picked up 20 empties and headed to Driftwood. We had planned on just chasing the train south, but with the 637 facing north and the clouds rolling in we couldn't resist chasing them back north. While at Driftwood the trio passed the NS 8520 that is still awating transfer back to the WNYP. Enjoy!

None of the signals north of North Driftwood are operational.
