If u come in on 237 from 480 e or w you will need to stay on Rocky River Dr and turn down Depot St. from the West. If you get off onto Bagley from 71 n or s you can still turn north on Depot st. but not cross the sets of tracks as there is now a bridge that goes over both the csx and ns lines. They are still working on the NS side of things. About a month and a half ago it was very neat when CSX had that derailment outside of Chicago all CSX trains had to stop in front of the old Station Restaurant (no longer open due to the construction) and wait to get onto the NS line. I wish this move happened on a daily basis.
Enjoy your time in Berea, it's a great busy place still! I also like railfanning over in Olmsted Falls, the next town to the west. Over there NS runs by themselves on the north side as you may already know. Down on 252 where CSX crosses they are putting an underpass in there for the road so CSX has a shoefly there right now.
