In Bucyrus, National Lime is a CSX contract, not CFE or NS. At the merger CSX got it. Cars go to Wooster. CSX crews.

Re: New Ohio Online Rail Map

I found another one of interest. Toledo Ohio, tracks to the Cherry Street Station. These tracks appear to be missing from the map as abandoned tracks. My question is where did these tracks actually run? The information I can find indicates the passenger station was at the eastern corner of Seneca a...

Last interurban car through Delta was in 1939. LSE car 149 was restored on a short piece of track right on the ROW before we bought it (Northern Ohio Railway Museum).

Re: New Ohio Online Rail Map

Oberlin’s first east-west route left the Big Four at Grafton and ran from there to Oberlin-Norwalk-Fremont-Toledo. The Grafton-Oberlin stretch was abandoned and replaced by the Elyria-Oberlin section. The two north-south lines were the Lorain and West Virginia (abandoned 1969) and the Lorain, Ashlan...

Re: New Ohio Online Rail Map

Question about the lines around Fremont. Looking at the line, there was a line that ran SE from Toledo, through Fremont and then to Bellevue parallel to the current NS line. What is the history of this line? A portion remains in Fremont, but on either end it shows as abandoned. I assume what is lef...

The 3rd line you see was the Lake Shore Electric interurban line. It was only there from 1901 to 1938.

Re: CP to Bluegrass Farms

After studying the matter further, does anyone really think this is going to be successful? I see nothing as of right now that indicates that this is going to come to real fruition. I hope I’m wrong.

Re: New connection near Vermilion

Right now it looks like 22k/23k and 205/206 will use it so like Cory said you gain those on the NKP to the new connection but lose them on the Chicago Line, to that point.

Glad to catch the Spore Run stone loads at Crestline Tuesday evening again. My question is, does that train terminate in Wooster? Thanks.
