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;

Thanks, alan
