ABC 4005 Two for Tuesday

July 19, 2022

I’ve rarely caught Akron Barberton Cluster GP40-3 No. 4005 on the road. Here are two photos of it from Akron.

The ABC uses CSX to interchange with the Wheeling & Lake Erie and to work a small yard in Akron. Both photos were taken from a location that is no longer safe. A friend was held up there. The top image was made going westbound on CSX on Jan. 15, 2020. The bottom image was made eastbound on CSX on May 5, 2021.

The 4005 was acquired by the W&LE in July 2019 and rebuilt at the Brewster shops. When released, it had been lettered for the ABC. The heritage of the locomotive is Dakota, Minnesota  & Eastern.
