Ex-Soo Line Unit Pays Visit to Northeast Ohio


On paper the Soo Line Railroad still exists. But it is owned and operated as Canadian Pacific. Few locomotives still wearing Soo Line colors are still in operation.

But one that still carries Soo markings, SD60M No. 6061,  made an appearance in Northeast Ohio on Sunday.

It was the lead unit of CSX train Q378 bound for Buffalo, N.Y. It reached Collinwood around 3:30 p.m. and then tied up later that evening near Beidler Road in Willoughby after the crew exceeded its hours of service.

Akron Railroad Club member Jeff Troutman spotted the 6061 on Monday at 8:30 a.m. in Mentor and sent along this grab shot.
