Driving between industrial road locations in Cleveland, we stumbled across this pair of electric switchers hundreds of miles from the wires that powered them. Although they both served as passenger switchers in the New York City metropolitan area, they served arch-rival owners, so they probably never locked couplers before coming together in Ohio.
Penn Central 4710 is former NYC S2 Class 110, built by Alco-GE in 1906. This class served as the inspiration for many of the earliest electric-outline toy locomotives from Lionel, Ives, and American Flyer.
Penn Central 4751 is former PRR B1 Class 3912, built by PRR in 1926. While it may have had other assignments during its career, photographic evidence suggests that it spent the latter part of its service at Sunnyside yard in Long Island.
Three of the S2’s and one of the B1’s still exist, but these two relics were apparently cut up.
