Stone Trains Rolling Into Kent

From Akron Railroad Club member Bob Rohal comes word that the first stone train of the year was delivered Friday to Shelly Materials in Kent. Unlike in previous years, this train was delivered by the Akron Barberton Cluster Railway, a subsidiary of the Wheeling & Lake Erie.

The W&LE won the contract to deliver stone to Shelly. CSX had held the contract in recent years. The first train had two W&LE SD40s with the ABC SW1500 spliced between them. The train had 65 cars.
