Couple of Out and About Shots



Akron Railroad Club member Jeff Troutman sent along a couple of images that he made while out and about recently.

The top image was made on the Grand River Railway near the Morton Salt facility. The short-line railroad continues to use a leased CSX locomotive.

The image shows construction of a loader at the plant that will use computer technology to load covered hopper cars with salt.

An online report indicated that the first of two switchers that he has ordered continues to languish on CSX in Willard.

The switcher has flat spots that it endured while in transit. Reportedly, the locomotive will be sent to a repair shop in Indiana.

The second photo shows trains of Norfolk Southern and CSX stopped in the yard at Carson due to a track work project ahead.
