WE 3016 (4)
Title:  WE 3016 (4)
Description:  Leading an empty ore/coke train west over the rusty old Chaintown Bridge, the beginning of the remote Creek Hills area. Since the last time I photographed this engine, it has gotten new number boards but now it has a burnt out ditch light. WE 3016 is a former Wisconsin Central 3016, Oxford 3016, and Union Pacific 3016 SD40 built in 1966. Acquired by Wheeling and Lake Erie in 1992 and rebuilt by their Brewster Shops in September 2000.

Wheeling and Lake Erie on Chaintown Bridge
Title:  Wheeling and Lake Erie on Chaintown Bridge
Description:  A look at some of the matching empty ore/coke hoppers going west over the old landmark bridge of the former N&W and P&WV railroads. Completed in 1933. Behind me where I was standing is the beginning of the remote Creek Hills area. That road might look decent here but gets much worse after that.

WE 302 (7)
Title:  WE 302 (7)
Description:  A GP40-3 soaks up some unseasonably warm December sunshine on train Z564-01. I did not have any sunny closeup shots of this one yet so it was time to do something about that. Number 303 is the one I've covered more. This one has had the paint touched up on the conductors door in 2012, and it looks much better now. The Wheeling and Lake Erie takes great pride in their engines. WE 302 was built in August 1968 as Penn Central 3113 GP40. Later became Conrail 3113, DRGW 3173, DRGW 3131, and WE 3131. Rebuilt into a GP40-3 in December 2004.
