New ‘Horse’ Testing on the CVSR

Arriving in Penninsula.

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is testing another eco locomotive, National Railway Equipment Company’s 2GS14B No. 1400.

On April 29, I took advantage of a sunny Sunday morning to follow the first southbound CVSR train from Peninsula to Akron.

A clean No. 1400 was leading with an equally clean “Baltimore & Ohio” No. 800 on the north end.

Since these photographs were taken, No. 800 has been sidelined with mechanical problems and No. 1400 has been moved to the north end of the train.

Pulling into Akron’s Northside station.

A genset coupled to a round end observation car. How many places can you see that?
