Steam Saturday: En Route to the Valley

Former Canadian Pacific 4-6-2 No. 1293 was once a mainstay when Ohio Central used to operate steam excursions.

The Pacific-type locomotive sometimes ran as a CP steam and sometimes as an Ohio Central locomotive.

In 2012 it assumed another identity Central Ohio 1293. It is shown above on Sept. 6, 2012 on the Wheeling & Lake Erie Navarre en route to Akron.

The 1293 would pull a series of excursions on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad that year.
