Switchers for a Saturday

Railroad photographers are fond of coining terms that mesh well with days of the week. So you might have signal Saturday or tower Tuesday.

We’re going to carry out that theme today with a pair of switch engines to highlight our Saturday.

In the top image is Cotter Merchandise Storage’s prior switcher (unnumbered GE) is working in Akron on Nov. 13, 2009.

In the bottom image, we’ve traveled to Titusville Pennsylvania to the Oil Creek & Titusville short line railroad to view it Alco S2 No. 75.

The tourist railroad operates on former Pennsylvania Railroad tracks.

    The Cotter M&S GE switcher had been the PPG Barberton switcher, still wearing remnants of the paint scheme it was given in celebration of the U. S. Bicentennial in 1976.
