Conrail C40-8W 6109 leads a northbound (eastbound time table direction) loaded coal train through Crestline, OH sometime between Nov and Dec in 1996. This train is moving on Conrail's Indianapolis Line (ex-NYC mainline) after having just come through Galion, OH. It is crossing over the diamond which is Conrail's Fort Wayne Line (ex-PRR Phila-Chicago mainline). In the background is Crestline tower and behind it the connecting track between the 2 mainlines. At this time, the ex-PRR shops at Crestline were still standing, but were pretty much abandoned. The Indy Line is now CSX; the Fort Wayne line is now NS from Pittsburgh to the Crestline diamond. West of the diamond, the FW Line is now the Chicago Fort Wayne & Eastern (a regional railroad).

UPDATE:  This tower was torn down by CSX in January 2015
