Wheeling dog's breakfast on train #262 today
Author: EL833

The Wheeling and Lake Erie will often run the Akron/Canton/Brewster (Ohio) train #262 on Saturday mornings. Today's version had 7 units and 15 cars which would normally make for a tough chase, but a troublesome car restricted the train to 10mph allowing photos at multiple locations. The large locomotive counts on this train are due to taking a lot of the Akron local power down to Brewster for servicing or trade out. Unit numbers : 303, 108, 6992, 110, 111, 105, 200. The 303 has recently had some body/paint work done on the short hood resulting in the loss of the Rio Grande lettering on the nose.

Crossing over a causeway at Wingfoot Lake south of Mogadore, Ohio.
A crossing north of Hartville.

Pretty neat.  What's the average age of those units?  But still earning their keep.

To compare the "new" nose look with the old on the 303, a photo from July 15th at Glenwillow (Solon), Ohio.
