The Drive to Jefferson Ohio 5/14/2013

by Chris Guenzler

I was now solo for the reminder of the trip. I left Romulus, Michigan at 5:40 AM and made my way down to Ohio Highway 20 which I took east. I stopped for gas and a Big Mac breakfast before I made my way to Bellevue and an early morning return to the Mad River and NKP Museum. I had used Google Earth and located some of their other equipment which I did not see on my last visit here.

CSX 6071 West just sat there, but I had to move on. I took Ohio Highway 58 back to US 20 East which took me to Interstate 71 which got me on Interstate 90 which took me through Cleveland. East of there I saw a CSX train with pure CSX motive power so I took Ohio 2 east to Willowick and found a grade crossing and set up for pictures.
