4. It seems traffic is way down, just a gut feel, and then a visual of the L15 returning to Sandusky from Maple Heights lite. Regular power; NS 3652 and 4346.

5. 10Q out of Bellevue has crossed over to the Lake Shore line heading east with NS 4474 and 7590.

6. 10Q is always an interesting train to watch. Today it has this CIBX box car; CIBX 173772.. CIBX is a Citi-Group reporting mark.

13. No more trains expected, so time to go home. But not before spotting this nice old Lyman boat "Silent Partner".

14. It's up to these fans to catch anything else today.

Good stuff!

I agree traffic seems way down. Daylight trains through my area seem to be in the single digits. There’s a fair amount overnight but less than a few months ago it seems.

No pool power, that's a little different. Nice material as always.

There was a 36 hour curfew on the NS Lake Erie District to enable span replacement on the bridge at Conneaut. Apparently a 309 and 265 train were tied down at Woodworth Control Pt at the PA/Ohio state line. Maybe that accounts for some of the weekend traffic slowdown through Vermilion?
