Cleveland Line
Title:  Cleveland Line
Description:  A view of the Cleveland Line at Alliance. This section of the Cleveland Line could use a little TLC. Still confused about the extra lights with the "C." I've read that those are "Check switch" indicators, but my NORAC rules state those mean "Clear to Next Interlocking."

Local freight
Title:  Local freight
Description:  This is one of the few very short freights on the Ft. Wayne line. Judging by the motive power, this is probably a local from Canton Yard.

Cleveland Line
Title:  Cleveland Line
Description:  A view towards the diamond at Alliance. The signals stayed on for a little while after the train went by. The unused switch in the left corner is all that remains of the former interchange between the PRR and the LE&W, which later became NYC and eventually abandoned. Behind the Track 2 signal you can see new switches ready for installation. With new switches (for I presume faster speed turnouts) can we assume the two remaining PL's on NS's main line in Ohio are now on the endangered list?
