The 4302 began service as NYC (P&LE) 5679 then existed as P&LE 1530. The unit was rebuilt by Morrison-Knudsen (12-1979) as a GP7u and was renumbered 4102. The unit then went to the Wabash Valley Railroad (WVRD) returned to M-K and received a chopped nose. Then it was back to the WVRD as number 4302. The MKCX lease unit worked its way to the A&BB (3-1981) after the closing of the WVRD. It worked on the A&BB for about a year (7-1982) and then sat in the Barberton Yard for storage before heading back to MKCX. The unit would eventually find itself as CWRL 4302.
