In the morning I started out in Wapak and then moving north to Lima catching the regulars, starting out with a manifest (Q239?) and the Q241.
Next up was the D744 with its turn running CSX 2640 Boxcar Paint.
Then the Y102 headed down the Pennsy to the CF&E yard.
A grain train with a standard cab made its way south.
This was an awesome catch!!! The Y102 was coming back off the CF&E blasting its RS5T!!!! Just after making its way through the crossing the Y101 came chugging back from the refinery. Perfect timing!
After that I left Lima and made my way to Hamler. Caught 2 intermodals in quick succession.
I drove to Napoleon, PREX 1601 was working the Cold Storage business but not out where I could film. Heading east I caught 3054 bringing a train east.

Later I came back to Lima because NS had 2 high hood SD40-2's on the L74! Yes had to chase! The video was shot at Vine St, Sugar St, Bluelick Rd and last Beaverdam.

The manifest is likely Q339 and your grainer is is likely G009 or something like that.

I used to live in Lima for 15 years, as most of my family is there along with my railfan father. I am hoping that someday you and I can meet up at Flanders Ave, so you can put a face to my screen name. If you have any questions, email me here or at michaelk.fair@gmail.com.
