Taking the Meadville Line  Contributor's Pick!       
OIEL, the through road train on the Meadville Line, diverges off the Southern Tier at Cass St in Hornell, heading for Olean and Jamestown. This train would go into the yard at Olean and wait for a new crew. When OIEL made a crew change point, you never knew when it would roll next. There were relatively few crews on this part of the line, and the train was not high priority. We'd get lucky, and chase the coal train also in this album. OIEL would come to life again later in the day, and we'd see it passing Salamanca while we were at the museum there.
