Paying Tribute to the AC&Y

June 2, 2020

It’s not a true heritage unit, but Wheeling & Lake Erie GP35 No. 107 pays tribute to the Akron, Canton & Youngstown by bearing an AC&Y herald.

It is shown crossing the Ohio and Erie Canal in downtown Akron on Oct. 8, 2014, on a bridge that the AC&Y built several decades ago.

This unit, which is still active on the W&LE, was acquired by the railroad in 1990 when it got started.

It was built in February 1965 for the Southern Railway.
