The last thing I expected to see on EMD pure Wheeling and Lake Erie was a big Conrail GE, especially on the former AC&Y lines. In October 1994 Conrail C30-7A 6580 lead an eastbound into Brittain yard in Akron, Ohio, passing some other WE power waiting in the clear. The W&LE is only 4 years old at this point, so none of the power is wearing the company colors yet. I'm standing right at the edge of the turntable. CR 6580 would become NS 8098, but only work a short time for it's new owner.
