RJ Corman For Lunch

The first CRHS BoD Meeting of the year is a pretty serious affair. It starts early and runs late, but there’s a break for lunch. Instead of just heading to Sheetz, we chased the RJ Corman grain train that had been delivered overnight.

Instead of waiting to watch them depart, we scouted out ahead for good photo locations.

We found one just outside of town, where he’d be working is way upgrade.

I’d take an SD40-2 and Tunnel Motor over the NS power behind it any day.

The red EMDs were doing the bulk of the work here.

There was no chase to be made after this, and we had real work to get back and do, so after a pit stop at the golden arches, we were back at it.
