    Very nice Sandpatch. That brings back many memories to me. Sadly that fine old depot is no longer there.

    Oh, that's sad. I wonder if the ore traffic is gone too with the many mill closures that took place soon after my photos were taken. Upon reading your post, I did a little research to find that the branch to the right of the depot is gone from Hudson to Cuyahoga Falls. It used to run all the way to Akron.

    The ore docks & Hulett unloaders are no longer there on Whiskey Island. Most if not all laker's are now self unloaders. Not sure if they unload at Whiskey Island anymore.

    The trains used to go from Whiskey Island down through Hudson to Mingo Jct. I'm not sure if those steel mills in Steubenville Ohio are still in operation. The last time through there everything looked abandoned & neglected to me.

    It seems that ore is still being unloaded at Conneaut & shipped south by the Bessemer-CN.

    I also looked at Google maps & see that other trackage abandoned & gone.

    From September 1990, an SOU GP-30 returns from Montgomery to Autauga Creek, AL. I somehow recall that I had to be in to work early this day, but thought to carry the Nikon along. Thankfully there was just enough morning light.

    Norfolk Southern's 13th Street Tower in Birmingham, AL was still hooping up orders in the time-honored tradition in November 1985. The former SOU and L&N mainlines crossed here. The tower has since been razed.

    Cheney Railroad's diminutive 44-Tonner sets out a boxcar for interchange near Pinson, AL in April 1990. Sadly, the rails have since been removed and the line is gone.

    Just a handful of Kodachromes from the early '80s at Tuscaloosa, AL. All were shot with a Nikon EL-2 body.

    The first two are on the SOU mainline, with Amtrak's Crescent at the long-abandoned tower where the GM&O crossed. SOU then provided a fine looking freight.

    Tuscaloosa also hosted an ICG yard which was frozen in time and often without people. It made for some good, unhurried picture taking.
