Hanging Out in Lake Erie Land - Just Chillin' Today
Author: train1275

Thursday May 12, 2022

Not much happening today, just watching the trains go by.

1. Walking down to the docks the 24M catches me by surprise and an unusual angle here that might be worth exploring further. Power is NS 9560 and 9447.

2. Flying high over the river, Train 32N has finally solved their DPU issues and is on the move from the NKP from Bellevue to the Chicago Line eastbound. Power is NS 4347, UP 5891 and I didn't get the DP power.

3. Train 316 is also on the move now that the 32N is out of the way, but 316 runs straight Nickel Plate so he is over on the low bridge as seen here with NS 7539 and 9970 as power and Danny Whitt at the throttle.

4. Train 20T comes by on the Chicago Line. Leaves are coming out, and new rip rap has been placed along the river at the dock area to prevent erosion. Man and nature in a state of renewal.  Power is NS 1179, 7646 and 1802.

5. And last one in evening light over town is the 32N on the Chicago Line but bound for Bellevue via the connection west of town for a trip down the NKP. Power is NS 7718 and 9451 with the crew staring into the lowering sun on the western horizon.

Pic 4 is excellent use of the available scenery in Ohio.  It reminds me of your D&H (CP, NS) wanderings in upstate NY.
