After equipping the unit for
Positive Train Control (PTC),
the W&LE renumbered WE 8795 to WE 5411 in February 2021
Prior to renumbering as WE 8795:
The W&LE patched over the
SCS lettering and Respondek logos, then added black
Wheeling & Lake Erie lettering on each side of the cab. The 8795 was placed
into service on the W&LE in October 2014.
The W&LE acquired Squaw
Creek Southern (SCS) EMD SD40T-2 8795 in
September 2014. The photo below shows SCS 8795 at Brewster, Ohio as-delivered.
