Chasing Train 291 on NS in July 1997

November 4, 2020

In July 1997 Marty Surdyk, his brother Robert, and Ed Ribinskas chased train 291 on Norfolk Southern’s ex-Nickel Plate Road mainline.

This train was known for its New York, Susquehanna & Western motive power on most days.

The chase began in North East, Pennsylvania, and ended in Vermilion

Here is a sampling of images from that chase that included stops in North East, Swanville (Pennsylvania), Cleveland the Vermilion.

At Swanville, the tracks cross Walnut Creek, in Cleveland they cross the Cuyahoga River and in Vermilion they span the Vermilion River.

Historic Susie Q Tunnel Motor Makes Apperance

June 12, 2018

The New York, Susquehanna & Western was operating one of their two ex-Southern Pacific (No. 8321) tunnel motors this past Sunday. It is great to see one of these rare locomotives operate. I photographed it Ridgefield Park, New Jersey.
