NS Dayton District Photographing Update

Post by tomasthetrain3 » Tue May 03, 2022 3:55 pm

Hello everyone. I apologize for being inactive on the form for so long. But...

I've finally decided that I'll be photographing more crossings throughout the Dayton District. CSX and I&O lines will be coming soon.

I've started in Springfield, but I was only able to photograph two of the crossings in the area.


These pictures do not have any previews for this site, so, to see the pictures, click the links below.
Here's Fountain Ave: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/520 ... ce21_k.jpg

And then, here's Linden Ave #1: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/520 ... 32d7_c.jpg


I have plans to photograph more crossings soon. So, expect more crossings to be shown on this post very soon!

Here's Fountain Ave's Equipment info:
