At Work for Timken

Timken GE 70-ton switcher 4501 is working in Canton on Feb. 4, 1978. As befits a steel company it is hauling a cut of gondolas.

Built in January 1949, the unit later was sold to the Buckeye Central Scenic Railroad in Licking County out of Hebron. The Buckeye Scenic shut after its last runs in September 2007.
