Getting a Rare R.J. Corman Sunday Move

Since last Sunday was the best weather from the past few days I went to Alliance to railfan. The first couple hours I had two eastbound stack trains but nothing westbound.

I found out that Norfolk Southern was doing track maintenance near Conway and no trains were being run. After noon, I went over to the Sebring model railroad club. Trains were moving here, albeit of the model variety.

After 2 p.m. NS opened the floodgates and I saw four trains in an hour. I relocated to Rootstown, catching another train.

Then I got word that an R.J. Corman train had just gone into Warwick to pick up some cars from CSX. I figured it would take 30-40 minutes to drive there so off I went.

I was just arriving as the train pulled out heading back south. Luckily, it doesn’t going very fast and made for an easy chase.

I got it several times at Canal Fulton and a couple more at Massilon. By now it was after 5 and the light was fading so I ended my chase here.

It must have been a slow day as the railfan chase crew was out in force. I see Bob Farkas at left near the train.

    Thanks for posting these. I was the first one to the spot south of Canal Fulton. When the RJ Corman train arrived, there were eight railfans there. Amazing!
