10 a.m., Straight Up, at Olmsted Falls

The Norfolk Southern office car special passed through Northeast Ohio Tuesday morning (June 12) , reportedly en route to Chicago. The train came through Olmsted Falls at exactly 10 a.m., according to the clock in my camera.

The top photo shows the train approaching Brookside Drive after crossing Columbia Road. F unit No. 4270 is in the lead. In the middle photograph, the four units have passed Brookside Drive and are passing the restored passenger station in Olmsted Falls used by the Cuyahoga Valley & West Shore Model Railroad Club.

The bottom photo shows that the rear seats of the theater car were a popular place to be. The man in the front row to the left appears to be NS Chairman, President and CEO Wick Moorman.
