At the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Company (W&LE), we understand the importance of keeping railcars in service and doing so by making quality repairs that meet AAR standards. Safety is our top priority at W&LE, making sure that our locomotive and railcar repair services are performed by experienced and knowledgeable technicians.
The locomotive and car repair shops of the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Company (W&LE) are housed in single a 140,000+ square foot building which contains a 90-ton drop table, 35-ton crane, wheel truing machine, load test facility, six locomotive bays and capacity for up to 20 cars.
In honor of Al Luckring’s 31 years of dedicated service to the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway, and 61 total years of railroad service, the car shop is now named the Wheeling & Lake Erie “Al Luckring” Car Shop. Congratulations to Al on his retirement.
