I have been searching for the frequencies used by the Northern Ohio and Western RR in Tiffin, OH. I can't seem to find any data. I know this was once part of the Indiana Hi-Rail system. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks. I have searched the database on this site and searched the FCC database with no success. I am hoping someone would have these freqs. programmed into their gear already.

I did a quick search in Seneca county and the only listings were for NS and CSX in the rail band.

Without a bunch of local knowledge, anywhere I could proceed would be little more than a wild goose chase.


Sometimes shortlines and switching companies use frequencies outside of the traditional Railroad bands, and sometimes they're not even VHF at all.

There is two subdivisions through town, and even that NS train that you saw is UP crews on board as NS doesn't run in Texas.

What you're hearing is the dispatcher issuing Track Warrants on the Waco Sub. You won't hear much from the others because that is all CTC.
