An I&O Yard Job pulls out onto the bridge that carries the McCollugh Yard Lead and the I&O Blue Ash Subdivision overtop of the interlocking at CP RIDGE on the I&O Oasis Subdivision.
The I&O 5014 brings orange back to the DT&I as the XLNL waits for the light to cross at Hamler.
LNL races south, back to Lima over the former B&O on trackage rights secured by the DT&I in 1966. CPL signals are plentiful on the line, but their days are surely numbered.
The LNL emerges from the shadows as it continues towards Hamler on its way to Lima.
The LNL rumbles into Malinta as sunshine finds the nose of the 4085 just as I took the shot. Malinta is where the DT&I crossed the NKP Cloverleaf and where the DT&I branch to Adrian, MI split off.... (more)
Z867 continues on its way south to Lima after meeting two at S. Ottawa.
Z867 climbs out of Leipsic with a pair of SD40's and a 20 cylindered SD45R still wearing SP garb. The fact that the SD45 retained its 20 cylinder mover when getting rebuilt is pretty neat.
The end is near for these signals so a stop here on the chase was necessary as this will probably be the last time I bag these.
The LNL leaves Hamler behind on a hot summer day in NW Ohio.
The Sunday afternoon southbound extra LNL heads through the small town of Hamler with a wide variety of color for power.
Wish they were working on the I&O! But alas, this nice pair was sitting alone in Indiana on the CF&E.
A bastardized ex-SP SD45R and a OHCR SD40-2 glide northbound out of Hamler destined for Delta and Northstar Steel. They'll return south to Lima after switching cars at Delta.
Indiana & Ohio 5014 sit's by the yard office idling on a mild January day.
After taking a transfer to Norfolk Southern's Sharonville Yard, IORY 5007 returns south on the Oasis Subdivision, splitting the Pennsy signals at CP AMBER with a healthy sized train for McCullough... (more)
A veteran of Donner Pass snows, IORY 9500 in an SD45R still Espee Garb bucks snow at Malinta, Ohio on the old DT&I Main.
