Cloudy Two for Tuesday on R.J. Corman

August 2, 2022

The sun can’t shine every day and when clouds roll in, as they often do in Northeast Ohio, some railfan photographers go trackside anyway. Here are two cloudy day photos made on June 9, 2022, of a southbound R.J. Corman train. In the top image, the train, with units 3001 and 1410 is in Clinton. The bottom photo shows the same train south of Canal Fulton.

Pipes Bound for Massillon

February 2, 2022

A CSX train is running southbound in Canal Fulton on July 1, 2015. Running on the R.J. Corman Cleveland Subdivision, the train has a load of pipe train destined for a staging area in Massillon where the pipe will later be used in the construction of a natural gas pipline running through Ohio into Michigan.

R.J. Corman in Canal Fulton

January 23, 2022

R.J. Corman GP20E No. 4119 is southbound in Canal Fulton on July 6, 2021. As I understand it, the grassy area in front of the train was once the location of the Baltimore & Ohio passenger station. The 4119 is a former Southern Pacific locomotive.

Backing up to Warwick

February 5, 2021

The CSX Wooster Turn is on its way back to Warwick and is shown here in Canal Fulton backing up from Massillon on R.J. Corman rails.

On the point is former Baltimore & Ohio caboose 903042. The date of the photograph is May 22, 1997.

The Wooster Turn used Norfolk Southern’s Fort Wayne Line between Massillon and Wooster.

Corman acquired the former B&O branch line between Warwick and Uhrichsville in 1988, and bought the 2.16-mile Wooster Industrial Track from CSX in August 2002.

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.

One From My Hometown

While I have lived in Canal Fulton for half my life, I rarely have taken photos here. Much to my surprise, I found this image of Canal Fulton’s past in a box of slides today.

Baltimore & Ohio No. 4354 and its train is heading south towards Massillon on a May/June day in 1982.

The track to the left is the current RJ Corman line to Warwick. The track that the 4354 is on was removed a few years after this was taken.

If you look carefully to the right of the Volkswagon, you can see what remained of the siding that served the now-gone Fulton Feeds.
