Bessemer & Lake Erie Railroad


North Bessemer Yard is the southern terminus of the B&LE, and the interchange with the Union Railroad. In late spring 2000 a quartet of SD38(-2)'s have delivered a train at North Bessemer and roll through the yard to pick up a train of loaded coal hoppers the return run north.

By this time the first 6 of the "new" Tunnel Motors were in operation, and quartets of SD38's had replaced the earlier mix of SD38 and SD18 that was almost standard on the B&LE.
