Four Days In Marion, Greenwich and Fostoria

Unread post by ChessieForever »

BL2-1843 and I made another one of our marathon trips this past week. Spent four days in northern Ohio documenting CSX and NS operations in Marion , Greenwich and Fostoria from June 1 to June 4. Spent 23 straight hours in Marion at the depot from 7:00am Thursday morning, June 1 through 6:00am Friday morning, June 2. We then grabbed a couple of large coffee's at Speedway on the way out of town as we made the one hour drive up to Greenwich and I won't kid you - we needed the caffeine. Was at the diamonds in Greenwich from 7:15am for the entire day through 6:00pm Friday evening continuing to not miss a thing on the rails. We then crashed Friday night in Willard at a local motel and picked up a much needed 8 plus hours of sleep. We then kicked off early Saturday morning, June 3 by checking out the Willard Yard seeing what we could see and had quite a haul of locomotives. From that point we headed back over to Fostoria where we arrived at 7:30am at the Railpark. Was in Fostoria from that point through 10:30am Sunday morning, June 4 for another 27 hour run of continuous train watching. Ended up with four hours of video. If we saw it on the rails, I have it on tape, at least in the daylight hours.

Grand Totals:

Marion CSX: 41 Trains, 74 Locomotives
Marion NS: 32 Trains, 72 Locomotives
Greenwich: 30 Trains, 68 Locomotives
Willard: 33 Locomotives
Fostoria CSX: 72 Trains, 133 Locomotives
Fostoria NS: 26 Trains, 55 Locomotives
Galetia CSX: 3 Trains 8 Locomotives

Total: 204 Trains 433 Locomotives

Outstanding report!! 20W runs the Chicago Line unless there has been recent operations change. Glad to see CSX isn't as horrible in train traffic as everybody says EHH is making it.

I've actually seen 20W on the NKP a few times.
