Thanks for the great information, guys... been putting off a stab at the BLE for too long.
It's been a few years since I've shot the BLE, but I would highly recommend driving the extra 40 mins to Greensville instead of Conneaut. Like has been pounded into the ground already, its the only place they will 100% for sure be running.

Two or three times when I went up there, the pervious day's crew brought a loaded train down to Greenville, so the morning crew just tied on and shot south. On those days, the train didn't end up making into Conneaut until the mid/late afternoon!
