A few years after the AC&Y was merged into the N&W System in 1964, three Fairbanks-Morse H20-44 road-switchers, originally working for the nearby P&WV (Pittsburg and West Virginia), were reassigned (sold) to the AC&Y. I don't have the dates handy, but would say they arrived in Akron between 1967-69. The AC&Y's business was very good at the time and they simply needed the additional road power. The units were repainted in a solid dark blue scheme with simple yellow lettering and wore numbers 506, 507 and 508. A photo of 508 is posted below. I believe they remained in service about 10-12 years before being retired.
