Akron Railroad Club member Todd Dillon was out hunting “Easter eggs” in the Pittsburgh area on Saturday when he got wind that Norfolk Southern 8100, the Nickel Plate Road heritage locomotive, was leading train 310 on the former NKP mainline to Buffalo, N.Y.

So he charged up to Conneaut where he capture the 8100 at the crew change point and later on the trestle over Conneaut Creek. Look for the rest of his “Easter eggs” in a post later this week.

    If you look carefully to the right of the photo, there are two people standing on the river bank. That is the bro and I. We were there for the shot as well.
