Mistaken Identity

September 8, 2022

JRCC 3001 and RJ Corman 4119 are leading a Corman southbound train on March 18, 2022, southbound train. This is the first time I have seen JRCC 3001. Two of the images show the train leaving Clinton. A third photo shows it north of Canal Fulton. We believe the reporting marks are in error and that someone transposed the letters “R” and “J.”

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.”

R.J. Corman Two for Tuesday

December 28, 2021

It is Oct. 19, 2021, in Orrville. R.J. Corman’s Wooster Local is rolling westbound on the Fort Wayne of Norfolk Southern, which the Corman uses to reach Wooster.

In the county seat of Wayne County the Corman will serve shippers located on the remnants of a Baltimore & Ohio line that is mostly abandoned elsewhere.

GP16 No. 1804 is on the east end of the train while GP20E No. 4119 is on the west end.

The heritage of these locomotives is Seaboard Air Line and Southern Pacific respectively.
