NYC Heritage Unit Passes Through

Well, it seems that Murphy’s railfan law worked in my (and everybody else’s) favor on Sunday. The two Norfolk Southern heritage locomotives that I got in Ft. Wayne, Ind., took all night just to get to Toledo. They finally went through Berea just after noon.

I got a few roll by shots and headed for Brady Lake. Not liking the angles there, I went to Ravenna at milepost 86.

After about a 20 minute wait, the train slowly pulled up and stopped with the New York Central and the Savannah & Atlanta units right in front of me.

Of course, the railfan chase crew immediately showed up. Akron Railroad Club member Richard Thompson was among them.

The train was stopped for a signal and after a half hour it got under way again. This ended my chase for the day.
