Wordless Wednesday #129

Brendan and I finally caught one of his favorite Norfolk Southern Heritage units, the Erie SD70ACe #1068. This is one of the few remaining Heritage Units we had yet to see in person. Hudson, OH 5-23-17 Chris Ellis photo.

Wordless Wednesday #126 Rexford Wye

Just south of the Rexford Tunnel at MP 184 there used to be a wye track, possibly used for turning helper engines assisting with the long grade out of the Ohio River Valley. According to the W&LE valuation maps the wye was retired on 8-6-1923, but in Google Maps Terrain mode you can still see the remnants of the wye's road bed after 94 years.
