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.
