Parkertown, Ohio

Parkertown is a siding under Interstate 80 on an NS line where the Wheeling and Lake Erie has operating rights. It is between Sandusky and Bellevue.

August 26th, 2007

After the last of the wedding celebrations in Ann Arbor, we headed for Toledo, Ohio in the afternoon and then to Alliance, Ohio to meet a friend in the evening. We found a lot of interesting stuff, mostly parked, in Toledo in the two hours or so we were there, and caught a Wheeling and Lake Erie train parked under the Interstate 80 overpass, which caused us to jump off the next exit and backtrack, in the town of Parkertown, Ohio.
