Ron Buser - click for larger pictureMany of the special photos that I have taken have come about based on information from Ron Buser. An ex-Conrail employee, Ron now works for CSX and can be seen traveling the rail lines on inspection trips like the one he was on when I caught up with him on September 18, 2001 just east of Mounds Xing.
