Another Quick Vermilion, Ohio Railfan Weekend
Author: train1275

Made another quick trip to Vermilion, OH on Lake Erie to shoot some rail action last weekend (September 5 - 6, 2020)

1. From the marina area sitting by the Vermilion River - NS 9183, 1081 and 1828 are eastbound over the New York Central bridge. Plenty of Labor Day weekend boat traffic and a little smoke from the 9183.

2. Another eastbound with NS 4359 and the Four Aces pass a set of nice benches at the marina.

3. Just upstream on the Nickel Plate bridge is eastbound 178, a Bellevue - Buffalo train with NS 1206, 9892 and 1100.

Great series of photos.  Vermillion is one of the best spots on the Lake Shore, a favorite with the local fans.  Another popular spot is the park near the Main Street crossing and the Lake Shore depot, west of the bridge.  The Lake Shore depot is still there, in decent shape.  Does anyone know who owns and maintains the depot?

I think the church right next to it owns it.

Nice shots. Fwiw, 567 is empties from Avon Lake, OH, back to the mine in Colorado or Wyoming.
