few days back, W&LE “same trains”
Author: agrafton

This past Tuesday while downtown Akron,OH I caught another early morning W&LE stone train, Z641, then a little later
in the morning another W&LE Barberton train, Z642 and in between a couple CSX trains. After the second Wheeling train
passed on it’s way to Barberton I hear a call on Z642 engine 1501, ABC’s switcher working around the corner from me.
Actually all Wheeling trains are ABC crewed.

Photos with additional information;

Photo 1 early morning Z641 Stone Train for National Lime & Stone behind old Firestone Rubber factory
photo 2 coming through Akron GP35 109 Z642 heading west to Barberton and will return shortly

Thanks, alan
