UP 1995 Spends Sunday in Cleveland

Q364 passing the former Big Four depot in Berea at about 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Here is my take on the visit to Northeast Ohio of CSX train Q364, which had as its leader the Union Pacific 1995, the Chicago & North Western heritage unit.

It was a bitter, windy, crappy weather day to be out, but this neat unit was going to get my attention no matter what.

I wanted to show it in locations that identified it as being in the Cleveland area with Berea being the first of course.

After Berea it was off to Parma to catch it pulling up to work the small yard there. After a lot of work and a wait for some traffic, the 1995 continued east, allowing the third location to be the first bridge east of CP 14.

Then it was straight to Collinwood where the radio chatter indicated a move right into the yard via the south lead.

This final location for us resulted in a classic Collinwood photo with the signals and coaling tower in the shot. A down on roster grab would be my last photo.

The last time I photographed the 1995 it was actually on ex-C&NW rails a few years ago over near Missouri Valley, Iowa.
