February 7, 2020

Here are a pair of images of one Wheeling & Lake Erie westbound in Orrville on Feb. 3, 2020.

In the top image, W&LE SD40-2 No. 7008 is on the lead as the train navigates the Brewster Subdivision. Notice the trackless ties on the right. There once was a passing siding here.

The bottom image was made at the same location location but much closer to the photographer. The second locomotive is a Denver & Rio Grande Western heritage unit.
