One Day on the R.J. Corman

May 23, 2021

This series of images focuses on R.J. Corman EMD MP15AC No. 1410 workings train, Z613, to Warwick and return on May 7, 2021.

In sequence we see the 1410 northbound as it approaches the CSX yard in Warwick. Also on hand is CSX GP40-2 No. 6415 on the D750, which is bringing a covered hopper to be added to Z613.

Then we see the 1410 southbound after leaving CSX’s yard. In short order it passes Warwick Tower and then cruises through Canal Fulton on the Corman’s Cleveland Subdivision.

First Day of May Delights

May 6, 2021

Nice weather for the first day of May 2021 has railroad photographs out to catch what they could find in Northeast Ohio. Here are a trio of images made on the CSX New Castle Subdivision west of Akron.

In the top image, a Canadian National SD75I leads train Q276 around the curve in downtown Warwick on the single track segment.

In the middle we see AC44CW No. 402 on the point of an eastbound in Barberton.

Finally, GP40-2 No. 6415 sits in Warwick at a new fueling facility. This unit is stored here between runs of local D750. The apparatus visible toward the rear of the locomotive is a plug in for the crankcase heater.

Crossing Chippewa Creek South of Clinton

May 13, 2020

We’re looking down Chippewa Creek as Ohio Central GP8 No. 5407 and GP10 No. 7595 pull a train southbound on R.J. Corman tracks south of Clinton on May 25, 1996.

This photo angle is still available but encroaching vegetation on the left bank of the creek has diminished the openness of the view.

The photographer was standing by the bridge carrying South Second Avenue over the creek.

The Chippewa beyond the bridge flows into the Tuscarawas River.
