    Back in May of 2007, I was just driving along minding my own business, stopped at a traffic light and when I looked up. Wow a train. Does not take much to entertain me. ;)

    Another old GE smoking up the joint. Used to view them as unremarkable background for all the flashy new wide nose six axle stuff to parade in front of. Now I kind of miss them. July 7, 2007.

    No fanfare or farewells that I can recall.

    This was part of an old abandoned industrial spur (serving the once and now also gone NCR complex) in Dayton. After abandonment, it spanned S Patterson Blvd at Stewart St (sans trackage) but could not survive "progress" as hydraulic hammers did the deed. Only photos and memories from old timers would tell future generations that a railroad was ever here (the area is undergoing changes that even erase NCR's former massive footprint).
