Busy Civic Holiday Train-watching in Fostoria, OH. W/ FURX, CP, BNSF, UP, CSX, NS and MOW!

  • Published on Sep 1, 2014
  • Back during the Civic Holiday week my family and I went down to Ohio to go do some train-watching and ride roller coasters at Cedar Point. It was a busy day in Fostoria. Lots of action all day. We saw a lot of BNSF power and I thought those FURX units were pretty neat. There was one more train that I caught but it's special enough to have its own video so I'll upload it separately. There were some MOW guys working on main one and that caused for some pretty funny chatter over the radio about how many trains were stacking up on all three lines. I think the reason why there were so man W/B trains was because in the morning the dispatchers probably held all W/B traffic to let E/B trains through. Then after a few hours they switched over to W/B trains. I bet later that night it was probably super busy but we had to find our hotel in Sandusky. Anyways, enjoy the trains!

      Yeah that intermodal was probably there for a good 10-15 minutes. It was a long sucker and the restricted speed on the connector didn't help either.
