W&LE on the B&O at Lester Ohio in better days
Author: WLE2679

Back in 2014, W&LE owed horsepower hours to CSX, with CSX using the power on locals out of Willard.   Back when the CL&W sub was used between Seville to Lester, I believe it was D740 that did a Willard to Lester turn.   The drop up, pick up and switching took all of 20 mins.    These were shot with my backup Panasonic Lumix as I forgot to charge my other camera.   Oops. 

Shows local arriving, departing and the B&O caboose that used to be used on the local to Lorain.

Thanks for posting these. I have rarely seen images at Lester let alone ones showing the W&LE

I have heard of rumored negotiations between CSX & a short line company to purchase the CL&W from Sterling to Lorain, plus the Cleveland Sub from Lester to Parma.  Whether there is any agreement is a question.  Short line purchase prices are steep at this time, and likely CSX is holding out for good money.
