RBBB "Blue Unit" Circus Train - Apr. 28th, 2003:

  • After waiting a little over an hour in Glouster, train 046 finally rounded the curve in front of the station.  The locomotive consist, C40-8 No. 8723 and C40-9W No. 8922, was in charge of fifty-seven cars.  The consist included an assortment passenger cars, flats, and an open autorack bringing up the markers.

  • The next location I managed to catch 046 at was Corning siding.  In this view, the "Blue Unit" snakes through the curves off of State Route 13 outside Corning.

  • I had to cut the chase short, so I parted with the train outside Rendville.  The 046 is just about to cross the grade crossing and head on north toward its final destination of Columbus.  Once the show is over in Columbus, the circus train will head on to Mexico City, Mexico.

Hunt for the 45N - Feb. 19th, 2003:

  • As the snow begins to fall again, PRR SD60M no. 6769 North leads the 45N through Armitage with fifty cars in tow on February 19, 2003.

  • The chase was on after the 45N passed through Armitage.  At the covered bridge just off Ohio Route 13, the 45N passes by with the snow really picking up now.  The bridge is under restoration, allowing for many more photographs to be taken here.

  • The 45N was again caught at the Ohio Route 13 grade crossing just south of Corning.

  • The snow is at its height now by the time the 6769 brings the 45N into Corning.  By now the crew has to be guessing where I'd show up next.

  • Junction City was where the chase ultimately ended.  Tried to catch him again at Thurston, where he would meet the 44N, but somehow missed the meet.  So I went to Bremen to catch the 44N before heading for home, but ended up waiting for a good hour-and-a-half before giving up.  Upon getting a ways down on Ohio Route 664 South, the scanner comes to life with the NA dispatcher trying to find out what the hold-up was with the 44N.  At 6:30 p.m. and on my way home, I decided to keep going and wait another day.
