The One and Only "Y@"
Between working and sleeping, I've found time to get out to a few less visited spots in my area recently. Here's what I've been able to get.

On a perfect evening, a westbound train of empty hoppers leaves the controlled siding at Archbold with a rare ex-LMS leader.

A few days later, I decided I needed another morning on the Nickel Plate. I was not disappointed.

A thick fog rolls in just as the sun comes up, while a classic bracket mast beckons to an eastbound that is still several miles away.

A short time later, a westbound stack train thunders into Miller City as the fog slowly burns away.

Later in the morning, an eastbound grain train crosses the IORY diamond in Leipsic with a classy looking leader.

After a cloud bank rolled through, the skies were once again clear as an eastbound roadrailer creeps through a 10 mph speed restriction in Leipsic.

Another good looking leader was seen on this eastbound mixed freight, seen splitting the NKP intermediates west of Leipsic.

Hope you enjoyed.

The first one is a timeless scene. A string of hoppers snaking out of a siding behind workaday power.

Love the Pics man! My Favs are the ones with the NKP bracket signals. A group of us railfanned N. Findlay for years! Sure miss all the symbol freights on the Toledo Branch of Conrail!
