The Sun and I Found the NS Veterans Unit

NS 6920 was sitting in the Avery siding when I first encountered it.

With a few sucker holes hypnotizing me I headed west last Friday in hopes that I might run into NS 6920, the Honoring Our Veterans unit.

I found it parked with no crew in the Avery siding. That’s very close to the Route 250-Ohio Turnpike interchange just north of Milan.

In short order a crew showed up to drag that empty grainer into Bellevue. I still had sun at Strecker Road but after that the clouds rolled in, so I did a few more photos around Bellevue then called it a day.
