On a different day, the CSX east local is passing eastbound through downtown Delphos by Central Soya and the engineer waves. July 14, 1999.
On June 21, 2001 westbound NS 21A comes through downtown Delphos and in the second picture is passing the spot where the Clover Leaf used to cross. This routing is no longer used by NS.
