Rollin' To Ross Estates

By: David Rohdenburg


Description

Rollin' To Ross Estates - On August 2, 2021, Norfolk Southern local freight T97 highballs down Main 1 of the NS Dayton District, hustling through the curve behind the Sawbrook Steel Castings plant in Lockland, Ohio at Milepost CJ 250 on a beautiful Summer evening as they head for some former N&W industrial trackage at an area known as Ross Estates. NS 5338 is running on old home rails here, as it was formerly Conrail GP38-2 No. 8171 before being rebuilt with an Admiral Cab, and the Dayton District was formerly Conrail's Cincinnati Line until going to NS in the 1999 Conrail split.

I've been following trains since I was old enough to know what they were. I started doing photography in my teens, and have been doing it ever since, and now include my family in some of my images.
