Get the New Railroad in Town While You Can

Cleveland Harbor Belt Railroad No. 2369 and Cleveland Commercial Railroad No. 2377 at Bedford earlier this summer.

The Cleveland Harbor Belt is a new railroad operation that will provide switching services at the Port of Cleveland behind Cleveland Browns Stadium.

This GP39-2 started life as a Missouri-Kansas-Texas unit and was lettered for the Cleveland Commercial Railroad just prior to getting its new CHB lettering.

For now the unit is being used on the regular afternoon CCRL train out of Falls Junction (Glenwillow) near Solon. This unit is due into the Port any time now, and I’m guessing photos of it will be tough to get after that.
