Timely Heads Up Yields Good Result

ARRC treasuer Ed Ribinskas can hear inside his house in Painesville the horns of the Norfolk Southern trains traveling over the former Nickel Plate Road mainline. The crossing at Riverview Drive and the trestle over the Grand River are but minutes from his home.

Some timely heads up notices on the Internet enabled him to be in the right place at the right time early Saturday afternoon. The NS 8100, the NKP heritage locomotive, was leading train 310 eastbound to Buffalo.

Ed caught the train crossing the trestle along with a handful of other railfans. This is Ed’s first contribution to the ARRC blog since he bought a digital camera late last summer. Look for more of Ed’s work to appear on the site in the coming days and weeks.
