W&LE No. 108 in Navarre

November 12, 2020

Wheeling & Lake Erie GP35-3 No. 108 has been around a long time. It was built for the Southern in December 1964 and came to the Wheeling in 1990 when the modern iteration of the company began operations.

A motive power roster online maintained by Chris Toth shows No. 108 still looks the way it does in the photograph above.

It is capable of remote control operation and has Alco-type B trucks.

No. 108 is shown here working in Navarre on Aug. 21, 2013.
