CSX 911 Passes Through Akron

September 7, 2021

The Spirit of Our First Responders, CSX 911, an ES44AC-H, pulled a coal train through Northeast Ohio on Monday.

The train N758, a coal train that originated at the Bailey Mine in Graysville, Pennsylvania, and was bound for a Duke Energy steam plant in Terrell, North Carolina. Some online reports had the train symbol as N759.

The trailing unit of the train was ES44Cc-H No. 765. The train passed through Akron on the New Castle Subdivision around 11:30 a.m.

It diverged at Greenwich and traveled via Crestline, Galion and Edison to Columbus.

Todd Dillion caught the train at Kent while Robert Farkas got it at Clinton.

The first four images are from Todd while the bottom image is from Bob.

The Chesapeake & Ohio Railway never served Northeast Ohio but its headquarters for several years was in Cleveland. Once the C&O gained control of the Baltimore & Ohio it was common to see motive power of the two railroad mixed together as shown above in Clinton on July 9, 1982.

Two for Tuesday: Then and Now at Warwick

June 29, 2021

Here are two photos from nearly the same location in Clinton (Warwick). This is the now-removed east leg of the wye that was in Warwick. As I recall the east leg was ripped out in the early 1990s.

In the top image, it’s 1968 or 1969, and a trio of Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives are heading toward Massillon.

In the bottom image, it’s May 20, 2021, and very little is left to suggest a railroad once ran through here.

May 23, 2021

This series of images focuses on R.J. Corman EMD MP15AC No. 1410 workings train, Z613, to Warwick and return on May 7, 2021.

In sequence we see the 1410 northbound as it approaches the CSX yard in Warwick. Also on hand is CSX GP40-2 No. 6415 on the D750, which is bringing a covered hopper to be added to Z613.

Then we see the 1410 southbound after leaving CSX’s yard. In short order it passes Warwick Tower and then cruises through Canal Fulton on the Corman’s Cleveland Subdivision.

Westbound at Warwick Tower

March 4, 2021

CSX GE C40-8W leads a westbound past the former Warwick Tower in Clinton on May 20, 1997. The photographer is standing west of the tower and alongside the R.J. Corman line that comes up from Massillon. The train is a CSX coke express.

The photographer noted that trying to duplicate this image today could get you in trouble with CSX for trespassing. At the time this image was made, railroad officials were more tolerate of such activity so long as the photographer was being careful.
