Genset Two for Tuesday

February 1, 2022

I recently saw on a photograph made on Jan. 12, 2022, of two now Sierra Railroad Genset locomotives with the first being former Union Pacific No. 2627. I saw the latter being delivered at Lane Road near Perry on March 13, 2007, on a CSX train. Here are my images from that day.

Something Out of the Ordinary in NEO

February 15, 2021

On Saturday a CSX westbound came through Northeast Ohio with some unusual cargo.

Tacked behind the lead CSX locomotive was a set of ultra low emissions diesel Genset switchers.

The Gensets were ordered by Union Pacific and have been converted by Super Steel in Glenville, New York, from GE B40-7A locomotives.

I caught them being delivered at Lake Road in Lake County.

New ‘Horse’ Testing on the CVSR

May 14, 2012

Arriving in Penninsula.

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is testing another eco locomotive, National Railway Equipment Company’s 2GS14B No. 1400.

On April 29, I took advantage of a sunny Sunday morning to follow the first southbound CVSR train from Peninsula to Akron.

A clean No. 1400 was leading with an equally clean “Baltimore & Ohio” No. 800 on the north end.

Since these photographs were taken, No. 800 has been sidelined with mechanical problems and No. 1400 has been moved to the north end of the train.

Pulling into Akron’s Northside station.

A genset coupled to a round end observation car. How many places can you see that?
