Deshler, Ohio Railroad Hot Spot
Another great spot for train action is Deshler, OH. This famous railroad hot spot has been a favorite for railfans for decades. Located in downtown Deshler, OH, presently CSX‘s Toledo, Garrett, and Willard Subdivisions come together there, all lines being ex-B&O. Also the ex-depot and tower still stands, although not sure forhow long. One of the better locations to film and take photos is at the railroad park, located on the south side of the CSX Garrett/Willard Subdivision tracks, near W. Mulberry St. As of 2022, all of the ex-B&O target signals have been replaced with the newer style.
CSX TOLEDO SUBDIVISION
CSX‘s Toledo Sub, is part of CSX’s Division. Once the B&O, it goes from Toledo to Cincinnati, OH (at Hamilton it is shared by NS, in order for NS to continue on their New Castle District, and turns into CSX’s Sub. into Cinci.). CSX as of 2019 runs mostly locals and auto racks on this line.
CSX WILLARD SUBDIVISION
CSX‘s Willard Sub. goes from Willard to Deshler, OH. This is part of the ex-B&O that runs between Baltimore, MD and Chicago, IL. This line has more traffic, with coal, coke, TOFC, stack, mix, and auto rack trains. At Deshler, it crosses their Toledo Sub., where it then turns into CSX‘s Garrett Sub. on the west side of the diamond.
CSX GARRETT SUBDIVISION
CSX‘s Garrett Sub. starts on at the west side of the Toledo Sub. Diamond, and goes to Garrett, IN, where it turns into CSX’s Sub., and to Chicago, IL.
