OHCR Railfanning/Roster Question

Unread postby TrainStuff13 » Thu Mar 16, 2017 8:08 pm

I'm planning on being in Ohio soon and I want to try somewhere other than the Chicago Line. I'm interested in railfanning Ohio Central. Can anyone tell me the best times and places? Also, I know that at one point they had at least two B23-7s in Conrail paint. Are these still around? And do they stay in one place mostly or move around the whole system?

I see at least one of the conrail paint B23-7R in Zanesville, OH I'm sure someone on here can give better detail.

The best place is Coshocton, Ohio! Go to the tracks in downtown and just wait for them! There's a few trains during the day (including coal)! Some run at night.

Here's a video, from ble643, of a coal train at Coshocton, 2011 (sometimes have helpers): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3u8W1eqA3o
Their headquarters is the old station in Coshocton!

Those are not "U boats" at all. B23-S7, or "super sevens."
You're wrong, and here's why.

Another place to find OHCR would be in Newark.
