UP Heritage Unit Action in NE Ohio on Sunday

On Sunday the Southern Pacific heritage unit of Union Pacific led a CSX westbound empty hopper train.

I had to work that day, but after getting word that it had just passed Berea at 1:30 p.m. I figured there was a slim chance I could catch it near Greenwich or Willard.

As it turned out the defect detector at LaGrange nailed a car and it had to be set out. I first intercepted the UP 1996 at Wellington as it was pulling up to make the set out.

It was still overcast then but I did like the shot by the old mill.

I then went to Greenwich to wait on it with hopes of more sun down there. Just as Q352 cleared at GN Tower the 1996 came around the corner, but the clouds didn’t clear.

Two more locations did yield some sun though, Boughtonville and Peru Center.
