46 Hours In Marion

Unread post by ChessieForever »

BL2-1843 and I spent three days at Marion Union Station last week down in Marion, Ohio. We arrived at 6:30am Wednesday morning, April 10 and stayed put for 36 straight hours until 6:30pm Thursday, evening April 11 without missing a train. We then crashed at a local motel out by US-23 and then was back at it again from 6:30am until 4:30pm on Friday, April 12 before heading back north to Michigan. In that time period we saw a total of 76 trains on CSX and 66 trains on NS for a grand total of 142 trains in 46 hours. On CSX we sighted a total of 132 locomotives of which 120 were CSX and the rest from other railroads. On NS we sighted a total of 120 locomotives of which 112 were from NS and the rest from other railroads. Grand total locomotives seen for the trip was 252. See below for the trains seen and for the video link:
