BL2-1843 and I made another one of our marathon trips to Fostoria this week. We arrived at the Iron Triangle at exactly 6:00am Tuesday morning, May 16 and departed at 1:00pm Wednesday afternoon, May 17. For 31 straight hours we did not miss a thing as we spent the entire night driving back and forth between the B&O, C&O and NS catching every train through town. Came up with 126 trains in 31 hours.

The Grand Totals were 247 total locomotives sighted. 187 of those were on CSX - which when broken down further showed 153 CSX, 12 UP, 6 CP, 5 CN, 4 BNSF, 3 NS, 3 CREX and 1 TORC. 60 were seen on the NS - which when broken down further showed 55 NS, 4 UP and 1 BNSF.

Trip report below. Enjoy!
