Trainscapes: Press F For The Norfolk Southern F Units

Welcome to Trainscapes.  Each week, we will feature train content including videos of trains and behind the scenes action of trains and locomotives!

From Delay In Block Productions, when it comes to watching freight trains on busy mainline railroads in the midwest, few places compare to Northwest Ohio. With three Class I Railroads and a variety of shortlines and secondary routes, the City of Toledo is a railroad hotspot.

Situated along the western banks of Lake Erie, Toledo, Ohio is the fourth largest city in Buckeye State. Known as the “Glass City,” Toledo exploded in population and industrial growth throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the city boasts a population of 275,000 people and is served by Norfolk Southern, Canadian National, and CSX Transportation.

Throughout the month of June, 2019, we visited the Toledo area three times to document trains along Norfolk Southern’s Chicago Line. In addition to documenting the usual freight trains, we were also able to record the NS OCS train running through the Buckeye State one last time with the F Units on the point.
