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.

Two for Tuesday in Warwick

July 12, 2022

Here are two from Warwick made on June 3, 2022. The top image of CSX 6248 is eastbound with what looks to be a local. The bottom image shows R.J. Corman No. 3001 running southbound past the former Warwick Tower, which is now used by maintenance of way crews. When I first saw this unit a few weeks ago, it was wrongly lettered “JR Corman.”

First Photographs of the Year

March 27, 2022

It is March 4, 2022, and here are my first two digital images from 2022.

In the top image an R.J. Corman train is about to leave its own track, enter Norfolk Southern’s Fort Wayne Line for a very short run, leave NS trackage, and re-enter Corman track again. This is at CP Mace in Massillon where there originally was a diamond before the track arrangement was changed to the present setup. Notice how dark Corman’s red appears when it is backlighted.

In the bottom image, CSX train D750 is eastbound in Clinton on the New Castle Subdivision.

A CSX train is running southbound in Canal Fulton on July 1, 2015. Running on the R.J.
