Bessemer!!!!
Title:  Bessemer!!!!
Description:  Here's a picture I took of the only Bessemer & Lake Erie train I ever caught (I did see it arriving too)! It was southbound in Conneaut, Ohio, 5-29-2004 (shortly after CN purchased)! I was on a trip with Dad (RCJ I) to Eastern Ohio & Pennsylvania photographing trains! Now, CN has recently replaced the Bessemer road locomotives with some other ones! There's only one (as of 10-2015) of these SD40T-3 engines left working there, #905! There are still SD38s working the ore docks though! I still would like to return someday!!!!

BLE 903?
Title:  BLE 903?
Description:  Yes, for some reason one of the DMIR-assigned SD40-3's found itself on A405 into New Brighton. It is shown here on the WC Transfer, getting wyed so that the IC 6261 would lead the outbound. One of my more strange catches on the WC. Date Approx, photo scanned.
