A trio of GP35's, C&O 3523,3528 & 3537 on a eastbound freight have just clattered over the diamond at Canfield Junction on the now long gone CASO sub. The C&O had running rights on this track from St.Thomas. I was about half way between the diamond and Junction Road which crosses the double track mainline. If I recall Junction Road crossing was protected with the old style "wig wag" light and of course it never occurred to me to take a picture of the wig wag arm and light. On this day, Bruce Mercer and I spent time at Canfield as well as E&O Tower further east of Canfield. 9 trains were seen this day, from 4 different railways, including TH&B at E&O.
