There it Was Just Sitting There



After reading an online report as to the whereabouts of Norfolk Southern 8105, the Interstate heritage locomotive, I decided to make a detour last Saturday on my way to Marion to give a presentation to the railfan society there.

The 8105 was reported to be sitting in Willard since Thursday on the Ashland Railway after coming off CSX as train K525.

Reportedly, the train would leave for Mansfield on Sunday morning to be loaded at AK Steel before returning to be interchanged to CSX.

But on Saturday I found the 8105 and its train snoozing near the Willard hospital and behind an R.R. Donnelley plant.
