Let’s Go to Channel 1

I’m standing at the west end of CP 194 on Conrail’s Chicago Line in Berea. Shown is an eastbound train just about to clear the eastbound home signals on the signal bridge. Note the sign to the right of the last car reminding crews that there is a change of radio frequency here. That remains the case today in the Norfolk Southern era.

During Conrail days no one said anything about railfans walking out to the vicinity of the west end of the CP 194 plant. But once NS took over that became off limits territory and I never went over there again.
