For a short time on Friday morning, Flagg Coal Co. 75, the only visiting steamer at TrainFestival 2004, towed around an Ohio Central caboose.
Ohio Central FP9A 6313 and sister 6307 sit at the head of about half of Ohio Central's passenger car fleet, which they will pull to Columbus later on.
Ex-GTW 4-8-4 6325 lets off some excess steam while resting between assignments at TrainFestival2004. Three steamers visible in this shot: OHCR 6325 obviously, Columbus & Southern Ohio fireless 0-4... (more)
A view of the long hood end of Ohio Central 7378, with a back porch big enough to have a picnic on, the most obvious trait of the SD40-2s.
What a face! Ex-Buffalo Creek & Gauley 2-8-0 #13 cuts an imposing figure in the late afternoon sun before TrainFestival2004.

The two biggest steamers on the Ohio Central, CP 1293 and GTW 6325, in the background, bask in the late afternoon sun.
GTW 6325 rests on Thursday, Media Day for TrainFestival 2004, a day before it would put on a grand show for the masses all weekend.
An ex-NC Ports Fairbanks-Morse that OHCR just acquired, sits in the display line at Dennison the day before TrainFestival 2004 starts. It still wears its NC Ports paint scheme.
OHCR 2912 sits on the west side of town, all by itself. Notice the crude "Penn Central" scratched on the long hood, and the PC "Worms in Love" logo further back.
C&O 2700 looking very deprived a few yards away from the ex-PRR depot in Dennison.
