Marion Union Station

by Fuchs on 06/27/12

As I’ve mentioned before, railfanning has been fun for the whole family. We’ve had our share of turn-arounds and pull-offs to catch a train picture (or trying to catch a picture). Publishing “my C&O” has given us another great experience, though we also had some fits and starts while looking for a printer. Turns out, C&O blue isn’t an easy color to render with four colors. At one point we had received so many off-color proofs, my three-year-old pointed to a UPS truck and said, “There’s the people that keep bringing us the wrong-colored train pictures.” We are pleased to have found O'Neil Printing in Pheonix who cared as much as we did about getting the color right!

One place we really enjoy visiting is the restored station in Marion, OH. Surrounded on three sides by tracks, there is nearly always something happening and friendly railfans about. Information about Marion Union Station Association is on their Facebook page. One can become a member for as little as $10 a year. The May 2012 issue of Railpace Newsmagazine ( ) has a feature on Marion’s AC Tower and a railfanning map.
