Spring Break 2009 in Northern Ohio

Following was received via email from Kermit Geary, Jr. Text, photos, and captions are his.

Well....that Sperry truck of ours broke again...this time the exhaust from the auxiliary power unit we have disintegrated...about gassed me out on Wednesday. Shut the truck down and put it in the shop...Now, what to do with a four day weekend???

Met with two good friends of ours from the Scott Depot area of WV (Joe & Nicholas) and headed for Willard & Fostoria, OH. Traffic levels were way down from a couple of years ago, but still allowed for some neat scenes to be recorded.

All to soon it was time to head back to pick up the truck and head back to the Pittsburgh PA area to re-start the W&LE test heading west.
