Ohio Central Triple Play Near Coshocton

Here are three photos of Ohio Central SD45R No. 7499 taken with my 4MP Olympus camera near Coshocton on July 29, 2004. The views are across a field with the Ohio Route 83 bridge in the background and a different view across a field. The 7499 was built as an SD45 for Southern Pacific in May 1968.

Not What You Think of As Ohio Central

April 26, 2020

The late Jerry Jacobson was known for purchasing a wide assortment of diesel locomotives when he ran the Ohio Central System.

One of the delights of the former Akron Railroad Club steam excursions to Morgan Run was seeing what the OC had at the shops and in the nearby dead line.

Of course some of that odd ball motive power made its way out on the road pulling freight trains.

Such is the case with Ohio Central 82, an 80-ton switcher shown working  in Coshocton, Ohio, in August 1999.

This unit was built in November 1945 for the original Genesee & Wyoming and later served the Logansport & Eel River in Indiana before coming to the OC.
