Republic Short Line Action in Massillon

Here are two Republic Short Line photos from Oct. 16, 2017. It is literally a very short line with about two miles of track outside the industrial park it serves.

Its connections are with Norfolk Southern and R.J. Corman in Massillon. There are a surprising number of “no trespassing” signs for such a short railroad and both photos were taken from off their property.

In the top image,  LTEX 1435 is pushing a covered hopper to the RSL’s interchange.

In the bottom image, she was already at the interchange by the time I got here. She was entering the industrial park by the time I drove back, so there are only two photos.
