Huntington Coal Transportation

Post by RailVet » Mon Oct 13, 2014 12:37 pm

The book Comprehensive Guide to Industrial Locomotives, third edition, lists two GE 45-ton locomotives in Huntington, WV, at the Huntington Coal Transportation Corp. One of them, No. 97, was previously Metro Track Contractors during the building of the DC subway system and had also been No. 3 at the Springfield Hospital in Sykesville, MD. Does anyone know if this locomotive is still on site in Huntington?

What year was that book published? There is no Huntington Coal Transportation Corp. anymore as far as I'm aware of. No GE 45 ton switchers anywhere around the city today unfortunately.
