The area around Youngstown, Ohio, hosts a number of abandoned locomotives. Among these, some are being disassembled while others are kept intact, ready for either reuse or preservation.
LTEX Rail has established itself in the locomotive scrapping industry for numerous years. Its storage tracks are densely packed with a wide array of first and second-generation locomotives and switchers. These come from a variety of companies, including Amtrak, Canadian National, Union Pacific, Conrail, VIA, and others.
Furthermore, LTEX Rail maintains a substantial inventory exceeding 400 EMD and GE locomotives that are immediately available for clients throughout the United States. These locomotives are offered under various terms, including leasing, lease-to-own, or direct purchase. Adjacent to these facilities, there is a large warehouse that houses thousands of both used and rebuilt locomotive components.
Previously, the site served as the location for the McDonald Works of the United States Steel, which ceased operations in 1981.
