Cleveland Short Line Reportedly Sells Switcher

An online report indicated that the Cleveland-based Flats Industrial Railroad has largely been idle in recent weeks after its biggest customer, a grain mill, ceased operations.

The report said the Flats Industrial last Sunday moved its smaller switch engine, Nos. 1202, because it has been sold to another short line railroad.

No. 1202 was at one time owned by the Southern Pacific.

The move did not require moving over a lift bridge over the Cuyahoga River.

The Flats Industrial uses former Conrail track in downtown Cleveland.
