Second Career on the Wheeling
After serving 29 years on the Union Pacific, she was sent to the deadline at West Colton yard. No worries. This would only be a short rest from hauling freight. Purchased and shipped east to become part of the LTEX family of locomotives. Like kids trading baseball cards, the Wheeling and Lake Erie traded seven GP35 units for three SD40-2 units from Larry. Now part of the Wheeling family, it received some of that Brewster TLC to roar back to life. Renumbered to 6355 and in grey primer, hauling freight as intended for the Wheeling now.
