Pictures of the Ohio Central 6325 excursion, 10/6/01
by Chris Jacks

The Grand Trunk Western 6325 sat on display for many years in Battle Creek, MI. It was bought a few years ago by the Ohio Central Railroad and restored. These are pictures from its second excursion, which I rode from Sugarcreek, OH to the railroad's shops at Morgan Run, OH. Sugarcreek is home to the railroad's five-days-a-week steam excursion train.

The crowd gathers to see the big engine.

The 6325 rounds one of the many curves on the way to Morgan Run.
