Was it once the “Akron Barberton Beltline” railroad?

Neat looking engine. Interesting how the Wheeling and Lake Erie adopted the old DRG&W speed scheme...

You know your RR's Tom. Yep the line was known as the Akron Barberton Belt RR from 1902 to 1994. The Wheeling & Lake Erie RR acquired the RR in 1993 and changed the name in 1994.

Bill, I remember their engines painted yellow, red and black from when I was a kid. I never realized they were absorbed by the W&LE....
