Drifting Down Into Grand River

June 26, 2017

One of the switch engine that was used by the Grand River Railroad makes a rare appearance on the front of a train drifting down the hill and into the street running in Grand River on March 17.

The two switchers adorned in this Baltimore & Ohio inspired livery are reportedly still on the property but no longer used in freight service.

The GRR instead is using Horizon Rail 8420, a GP10, that worked onĀ  the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad last year.

Catching Up with the Grand River Railroad

March 21, 2017

The Grand River Railroad shuttles cars between Grand River and Painesville, Ohio, connecting with CSX at the latter.

It operates a pair of EMD switchers that have been repainted into a livery similar to that of the Baltimore & Ohio.

It doesn’t go very far, just a few miles and has a bit of street running in Grand River.

Akron Railroad Club member Jeff Troutman caught the GRR last week and send along this photos.

In the top image, the train is coming down the hill and about to enter the street running.

In the bottom image it works the interchange in Painesville.
