IORY Lima

Unread post by trainjunkie47 »

Going to be in Ohio this week around the IORY south of Hamler, and down past Lima. I'm looking for any info on usual times or days the IORY runs north and south out of Lima. Also would like any info on the CFE through Lima. Thanks.

As of a month ago; Mornings are best.

The CFE Road Train to Fort Wayne runs at night

There is a daily? CFE to CSX transfer, including on weekends.

Another CFE job seems to either run west to Van Wert or east to Upper Sandusky each day.

The I & O had a yard job that went south on the weekdays and a road train that followed.

The southbound run of the LNL (Lima North Local) was at Hamler around 7:45 AM Monday. This is usually a little later than normal. Train goes north to Delta in the late evening and returns about 8 hours later trying get to Lima before outlawing.

LSW1 starts at 0500 and stays in the yard most of the time.
Lima B starts at 0800 and does out of town industry work.
LSL starts at 0900 and makes the Tremont turn.

Thats your daylight stuff.
