Action Today in Lake Erie Land
Author: train1275

Monday September 19, 2022
Vermilion, OH

1. Signals at "KM" east of town on the NKP are lined for a 316 which has left Kimball, just east of Bellevue.

2. And here he comes running alongside Berkley Road approaching the signal with NS 7665 and UP 2566. We had rain this morning, but by early afternoon the humidity seemed to skyrocket and the air was nearly as thick as water !

3. Train 28V, the Baltimore intermodal, crosses the Vermilion River with the NS 9846 and 7503 as power. I am now lounging out in a little cooler surrounding at the docks.

4. NS 1162 and 9887 on the 10Q out of Bellevue come east on the Chicago Line.

5. KRL 123201 brings up the rear end of the 10Q. This is one of two Kasgro 12 axle depressed flat cars with a 617,000 lbs. load capacity.

6. Hiking over to town to the rail park for a little excercise and here comes the 23G (Croxton, NJ - Chicago 47th Street), a new symbol with NS 9601 and 4268.

7. Then 13Q arrives on Track 2 in order to take the connector to the NKP for Bellevue. On the headend is NS 4303, 6332 (SD40E) and 5334 (GP38-2).

9. 3rd Unit is NS 5334, built for Conrail as 8166 in June 1977.

10. One last train before hiking back to the car and heading home to cool off, Train L15, the trusty Sandusky - Maple Heights turn job comes by with those colorful international containers and the standard power they have had for the last several weeks, NS 9467 and 7500.
