The Varied Motive Power of the W&LE

The Wheeling & Lake Erie might not have many different type of models of locomotive power, but it does does have an array of locomotive liveries.

That’s because it will lease or acquire locomotives from various sources and not repaint them right away.

A good place to catch a W&LE train is at Summit Street in Akron. It is common for stone trains to be parked here for hours until a crew is called to take the train west.

Here are a couple of examples of what can be found in images made on separate days within the past month.
