Ashtabula, Carson & Jefferson Railroad 5/14/2013 Part 2

by Chris Guenzler

On the way back to Jefferson we stopped for a Photo Runby.

The back up move.

The Photo Runby.

The train backed up to pick us all up. We all reboarded the train and I relaxed on the train until we got neared Jefferson.

Our train ran by the Jefferson Station and headed for that track I walked this morning. We are now getting rare mileage.

We ran by all the cars being off loaded.

Our train cleared the station area.

We ran by those stored cars.

The Jefferson water tower came into view.

We left those stored cars behind.

We took that curve by all those parked automobiles.

We ran by the old factory in Jefferson.

We reached our turn back location just across the street from the engine and caboose. We returned north to the Jefferson station ending our rare mileage trip. A special thank you as always to Bart and Sarah Jennings and all of those railroads we did our trips over during the last four days.

The Drive to Mansfield.

I was first out of the parking area and drove out to Interstate 90 which I took into Cleveland and then Interstate 71 to Mansfield. With bad directions I ended up in Mansfield but found two things worth the delay to my hotel.

The Mansfield B&O Station.

A unique B&O signal. I drove up the hill to a fast food restaurant who gave me directions to the Travelodge which I followed to it with a stop at Arby's to pick up some dinner. I then relaxed the evening away.
