I grew up 2 blocks from the Chessie
mainline running through Delaware, OH. which is
where the main group of these
photos were taken, and where my love of trains grew.
I really don't have many great
photos to share, so don't expect too much...
I was just a kid, and didn't
understand that this railroad that I saw everyday
would change the way all things
do, and any further opportunities to photograph
this legend would be gone.
As always, and like anyone else, I wish I had had the
forethought to have taken more
pictures, because this wonderful paint scheme
is gone, and the likes of which
will most likely never be seen again.
I miss ol' Chessie...
