Getting the EL and the 9-1-1 Locomotives




I drove to Mansfield on Friday to catch the NS 1700 a former Erie Lackawanna SD45-2 that has been restored to its original paint.  I did get it, but unfortunately it developed problems and needed a mechanic to look at it.

This meant it would sit for a while. While waiting, I saw that the 9-1-1 First Responders unit was leading a train north from Columbus.  I drove to Marion where it finally showed up at quarter to six.

I then gave chase north catching up to it at Chatfield and again at Attica.  By now it was nearly dark so I headed back home.
