Remember When an FL9 Prowled the CVSR?

It is September 2011 and Nickel Plate Road No. 765 is making a guest appearance on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad pulling a series of excursions, including a total track tour to Canton.

Also part of those excursions was FL9 No. 484. The 765 was only around for a few weeks, but No. 484 stayed around for a few years.

It arrived on the CVSR in late 2009 and remained their until February 2012.

During the 2011 visit of the 765 the FL9 was the motive power assigned to the north end of the steam excursions.

Built in November 1957 for the New Haven, No. 484 also pulled Amtrak trains through the mid-1990s.

At the time of its CVSR appearance, it was owned by F.P. Flynn. No. 484 also saw spot duty helping to pull excursions sponsored by the Orrville Railroad Heritage Society on the Wheeling & Lake Erie.

The photograph above shows No. 484 at Bath Road facing north. The 765 is on the other end of this train facing south.

The image was made almost seven years ago so it you won’t find it in a wayback machine. Still, seven years was several years ago and the 484 hasn’t been around for a while.
