Bessemer!!!!
Title:  Bessemer!!!!
Description:  Here's a picture I took of the only Bessemer & Lake Erie train I ever caught (I did see it arriving too)! It was southbound in Conneaut, Ohio, 5-29-2004 (shortly after CN purchased)! I was on a trip with Dad (RCJ I) to Eastern Ohio & Pennsylvania photographing trains! Now, CN has recently replaced the Bessemer road locomotives with some other ones! There's only one (as of 10-2015) of these SD40T-3 engines left working there, #905! There are still SD38s working the ore docks though! I still would like to return someday!!!!
