Here’s another post regarding my trip to Fostoria, Ohio, last year. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the main reason for my visit was to see the railfan park. For those who love watching trains, this is a hotspot. The “Iron Triangle” brings together three railroad lines. On a busy rail traffic day, a train watcher can more than get their fill. I have seen this to a lesser degree where I live in Elkhart County because there is a large rail yard not far from me. Train traffic can be busy here, but not quite to the degree it can be in Fostoria. What you see in the photo is a railroad whistle marker (hence the “W” on the concrete post). It alerts the engineer it is time to blow the whistle. I was able to catch the older concrete marker and in the background a newer type of whistle marker sign. There are still some of the concrete markers left in a few places. Of course engineers today would already know to blow the whistle when they come into a town, depending on whether the town has quiet zones.
