Akron Railroad Club member Richard Jacobs went searching for a bit of the past over the Labor Day weekend when he visited the Toledo, Lake Erie & Western Museum in Waterville, Ohio. He was hoping to ride on one of the museum’s excursion trains, but arrived to find the 2012 excursion season had been cancelled.

Instead Jake spent some time exploring the history of the Clover Leaf, the nickname of the Toledo, St. Louis & Western Railroad. The Clover Leaf was absorbed by the Nickel Plate Road in 1922.
