Vic Geckle states; this steamer was used by The Detroit Edison, switching coal cars in and out of their generating plant. When Edison retired 202, she was given to The Michigan Railroad Group. The Michigan group learned TLE&W was losing a 5 year lease on #377 steam locomotive, from C&O in Baltimore, MD. The Michigan group said TLE&W could have 202, if we could get her up and operating in one year. TLE&W did so in 11 months to the day. During this same time TLE&W Ry, lost operating lease with The Toledo Angola Western Railroad on Secor and Door Street. During that time 202 was being readied. In the spring of 1974, The Toledo Terminal moved our equipment from Dorr Street to the interchange of the then Norfolk and Western. On
her own power 202 moved everything from there to Andersons in Maumee. There we turned the Whitcomb and 202 locomotives, as we wanted both them pointed in the same direction. Once the engine was turned we continued on to Waterville. After leaving off the N&W pilot in Waterville, we moved the train on to Grand Rapids. Once in Grand Rapids TLE&W Ry. operated 202 for seven years. After the seven years it was found that a fire tube replacement was needed. This project was never completed, as there were other issues with # 202.
