Coming into Warwick

December 17, 2021

It’s Nov. 9, 2009, as the Ohio Central transfer run heads for Warwick Yard in Clinton to interchange with CSX. On the point is a GE B23-S7 that once belonged to Conrail. The train is operating on trackage rights on the R. J. Corman. Warwick Tower has long since been closed and the photographer is standing close to where the Pennsylvania Railroad line between Akron and Columbus once ran.

All That Was Left of the CA&C in Warwick

October 27, 2021

It is November 1988 in Warwick where all that is left of the ex-Pennsylvania Railroad line to Orrville and Columbus is this short stub passing in front of Warwick Tower. Originally, this route was known as the Cleveland, Akron & Columbus. Soon this track and the crossings would be gone as well as one of the two lines being crossed. The line that would be left would become an R.J. Corman line.

Westbound at Warwick Tower

March 4, 2021

CSX GE C40-8W leads a westbound past the former Warwick Tower in Clinton on May 20, 1997. The photographer is standing west of the tower and alongside the R.J. Corman line that comes up from Massillon. The train is a CSX coke express.

The photographer noted that trying to duplicate this image today could get you in trouble with CSX for trespassing. At the time this image was made, railroad officials were more tolerate of such activity so long as the photographer was being careful.

Bob Farkas likes to get out when he can to railfan the CSX New Castle Subdivision and photograph its trains.

In the top image, train Q277 passes through Barberton with what appears to be a fairly standard consist.

In the bottom image, a westbound saunters past the former Warwick Tower, which once controlled the crossing of lines of the Baltimore & Ohio and the Pennsylvania railroads.

All of the ex-Pennsy tracks in Warwick are now gone as are the diamonds that once existed here.
